Jaguar releases new photos, video with the C-X75 Concept

Article by Christian A., on June 27, 2013

Back in 2010, when Jaguar revealed the C-X75 Concept, the world saw the first hybrid supercar but due to financial problem the British manufacturer now owned by Tata Motors had to drop the project. Jaguar was not so lucky as Ferrari and McLaren, who revealed the LaFerrari and P1 hybrid supercars.

For those who don’t know, the Jaguar C-X75 Prototype uses a Formula 1-inspired, 1.6-litre dual-boosted (turbocharged and supercharged) four-cylinder powerplant that generates 502 bhp @ 10,000 rpm. Thanks to the electric motors that generatea further 390 hp, the Jaguar C-X75 has a combined power output of in excess of 850bhp and 1000Nm of torque.

As expected, the C-X75 features a battery pack which is the highest continuously rated power PHEV pack in the world, capable of delivering more than 300kW over the full state of the charge window. Using an advanced 7-speed automated manual transmission that allows gearshifts in under 200 milliseconds the supercar zooms from 0 to 100 mph (160 km/h) in less than six seconds, all the way to a top speed of 220 mph or 354 km/h.

The car's deployable aerofoil and underfloor aerodynamics create more than 200kg of downforce at 200mph, and active systems enhance its high-speed stability. Using just the electric energy from the battery pack, the C-X75 acts like an EV for 60 km. Moreover, CO2 emissions fall below 89 g/km.
