The Electric Jaguar C-X75 Hyper-Car
Jaguar is a name that has adorned some of the most magnificent motorcars of the past century, they’ve obviously decided that we all need a reminder about how beautiful they can make cars look when they try. Meet the C-X75. It has 4 195hp electric motors (one for each wheel) pumping out a total of 780hp, it has a plug and the lithium-ion batteries can be recharged from your garage’s 220v outlet.
The C-X75 also has 2 x 96hp micro gas turbines, to recharge the batteries on the go if you need to go further than the 68 mile battery only range, with the turbines running on gasoline, ethanol, diesel, bourbon or whatever other combustible liquid you have lying around the car can go a total of 560 miles.
“The aim was to produce not only the most innovative but also one of the most beautiful Jaguars ever; one which hints at an exciting evolution of the marque’s award-winning design language while paying homage to some of its most admired cars of years gone by.” – Jaguar PR -
Weighing in at 2,970lbs the C-X75 can shoot from 0-62mph in just 3.4 seconds and from there onto a top speed of 205 mph. If you’d like to buy one you’ll need to be wealthy and on very good terms with Jaguar, they aren’t doing a production run on the model however we can expect to see design and engineering elements of the car in future Jaguar production cars.
