Jag has driven everybody mad at Paris this time with there new supercar concept. By just looking at it first thing that comes out of mind is that “it is possibly the preetiest supercar Jag ever made”.
Like old great Jags this has also got a hideous name, its called C-X75 and it is going to be the first road going jet powered supercar (Although it is a concept but one will at least go on the roads). Yes! You read correctly, it doesn’t have a combustion engine like other supercars around rather it has a jet engine and some electric motors and batteries (Oh dear! Here comes trouble) but no worries because like tesla, Jag didn’t claim that it’ll go 10,000 miles on one full charge.
The Jaguar C-X75 uses four electric motors - one at each wheel - powered by Lithium-ion batteries, each producing 195bhp, giving a maximum 780bhp and a heart-busting 1,180lb ft of pulling power. This Jag can go 68 miles on one full charge. To increase the range, skunk-works at Jag has fitted two gas-turbines which recharge the batteries as you move along. The turbines rotate at mind-bottling 80,000 rpm n weigh just 35Kg and can increase range to 560 miles.
Some numbers: 0-60 in 3.4 seconds, 50-90m/h in 2.3 seconds and 0-187 m/h in Bugatti Veyron busting 15.7 seconds. The C-X75 uses a bonded aluminium chassis together with aluminium panels keeping weight down to just 1,350kg, while inside you get TFT high-res screens, a Jaguar Co-Pilot display and instrument/dash readouts which are angled for the driver.
Enjoy the remaining pictures.
I think Jaguare has done a great job. I mean Lamborghini was also supposed to release a new supercar but after so much fuss it has turned out to be a concept. Jaguare quietly did the job and unveiled a stunning supercar just 2 days before the Autoshow. Thumbs up for Jaguare.
