The Jaguar C-X75 that was shown off as a concept car at the Paris Motor Show last year has been given the green light to enter production. Jaguar has announced that they will be working with Williams F1 on the creation of the car, which is set to launch in 2013. In addition to making a fast car with sleek looks to match, Jaguar hasn’t turned a blind eye to the environment either stating that it will be an eco-friendly hybrid vehicle.
The hybrid Jaguar C-X75 will be competing in the same class as Porsche’s hybrid 918 Spyder. While most of its details haven’t been confirmed, the is touted to have a small-capacity, highly boosted internal combustion engine with one powerful electric motor at each axle and will have four-wheel drive. The car will be capable of reaching 50km on electricity alone and will achieve target emissions of less than 99g/km of CO2. The car is said to have a top speed of 200mph and will reach 0-60mph in less than 3 seconds.
Jaguar will only be producing 250 of these sexy machines so you can be sure these prices will sky rocket on the collector’s market once the initial run is sold out. But it’s not like the car was going to be cheap in the first place. Anyhow, if you’re interested in purchasing the C-X75, you’ve got two years to start saving.RELATED
