Article by Christian A., on December 13, 2010

According to the latest reports from Autocar, it appears that Jaguar is seriously considering a production version of the C-X75 supercar concept, unveiled back in September at the 2010 Paris Motor Show. Jaguar’s chief designer, Ian Callum said the the British manufacturer needs a supercar in its lineup. Although Callum was not able to confirm the production of the C-X75, he admitted that he is in favour of the idea.

According to Callum, the new C-X75 Concept received an impressive positive feedback, and the company will not allow such a reaction to be lost. “It’s no secret that the reception we’ve had for C-X75 has been fantastic,” said Ian Callum.

Regarding the performances of the C-X75 Concept, the car uses four electric motors, each delivering 145kW (195bhp),, which means that the car delivers a total output of 580kW (778bhp).

Furthermore, the C-X75 uses mid-mounted micro gas-turbines, which can generate an additional 140kW (188bhp) to charge the batteries, or can be used in order to extend the range of the car to an impressive 900km (560 miles) – enough to drive from London to Berlin on a single tank.

The electric motors deliver an impressive output of 1600Nm (1180lb ft) of torque. Regarding the performances, the car can hit a top speed of 330kph (205mph) and a zero tailpipe emissions range of 110km (68 miles).
