Turbo power is currently the “in thing” within the automotive world and Jaguar are the latest to shout about their next turbo charged creation. The C-X75 hypercar is yet to actually be confirmed for production, however Jaguar are making all the correct noises that point towards the C-X75’s eventual production with the car currently in the development stage.
Under the bonnet will sit a small 1.6 litre engine, however attached to this will be, not only a turbocharger, but a supercharger too! This is quite a remarkable setup and the engine itself will rev all the way up to 10,000rpm, which is impressive as well.
Jaguar has confirmed that the innovative engine will push out around 500bhp – so it certainly packs a punch! The impressive engineering and tech doesn’t stop their though as two electric motors will be positioned on the front and rear axle. Jaguar are very confident that their creation will outperform rivals in the hybrid supercar niche.
Furthermore, those working on the project are also sure that a 200mph top speed will be achievable and that a 0-60mph time of under 3 seconds will also be possible.
With that sort of performance, expect the car to be pretty expensive when getting a car insurance quote!
The Jag will also come equipped with a liquid-cooled, 200kg battery pack – the heaviest component in the car. The electric range is suggested to be 60km whilst the car will still reach 60mph, from a standstill, in just 6.0 seconds without needing to resort to the traditional engine.
Jaguar have even employed the efforts of the Williams Formula 1 team with the design of the car as the bonded monocoque, that is formed from a carbon fibre tub and connected rear frame, has been created with the help of the F1 team.
Jaguar have also stated that the C-X75 will be four wheel drive due to the intelligent systems that power all four wheels.
The car is suggested to have a sale price, whenever it reaches showrooms, of between £700,000 and £900,000. Whilst it is an extremely expensive car, it will be fantastic to see it go into production. Jaguar have said that they’d like to build around 200 examples of the car. Good luck to them!
The future of the supercar looks good – doesn’t it?
