Jaguar pulled out a big surprise at Paris by showing off the stunning C-X75 concept car. While the name is as sexy as a forklift, the car itself is a beautiful piece of sculpture. A celebration of 75 years of Jaguar design and a look into the future of automotive technology, the C-X75 is a range-extended electric two-seat supercar.
The Tata owned British brand promises green motoring with top notch performance. The C-X75 has a zero emissions range of 110 km when running under battery power alone. On the performance front, the 778 bhp/1,600 Nm propulsion system combines electric motors at each wheel.
The centre of the car houses micro gas-turbines that can either generate 188 bhp to charge the batteries and extend the range of the car to 900 km or provide supplementary power directly to the motors in Track mode. The four electric motors provide torque-vectored AWD traction.
0 to 100 km/h is done in 3.4 seconds with a potential top speed of 330 km/h. For more info, read our previous post. Live gallery after the jump.
