Jaguar C-X75 supercar to be produced in a limited edition

Article by Christian Andrei, on February 13, 2012

The factory where the gas turbines for the Jaguar C-X75 supercar will be produced has been formally opened by Tata Motors, the parent company of Jaguar. Around 15 people will be employed at the Bladon Jets Engineering Centre in Coventry where the equipment for the production of micro gas turbines would be stored.

The automaker has a patent for these turbines. Each of the 95bhp turbines weighs 35kg. They also have fewer moving parts than an internal combustion engine. They don’t require oil lubrication or water cooling, providing packaging and weight benefits.

These turbines are partnered with four independent electric motors at each wheel in the C-X75, which could accelerate from zero to 62mph in 3.4sec, offering a range of 560 miles, and CO2 emissions of just 28g/km of CO2.

Tata owns a stake in Bladon but only five C-X75s will get the turbines. Instead, most of the cars (which are expected to arrive in 2015 at the earliest) will get a four-cylinder turbo engine that Formula One team Williams had developed.
