Jaguars C-X75 which was revealed as a concept at the Paris motor show is now set to go into production and Jaguar will work with the Williams team who will almost certainly bring all there Formula One experience to the table
The Jaguar C-X75 was the star of the Paris motor show due to the power unit which was a gas turbine power plant, but only 250 models are rumored to be produced with a limited number of these running on this special turbine system. The rest of the 250 C-X75 will feature the new Williams designed 1.6 litre petrol hybrid that has four cylinders and is also turbocharged. This engine will use some of the same technology that Williams will use in the 2013 Formula 1 season.But dont think for a second that the Jaguar C-X75 will be underpowered with its 1.6 litre engine as each electric motor will drive an axle and with the engine being able to rev to a limit of 10,000rpm, the Jaguar C-X75 will have incredible performance.
Exact Figures of the Jaguar C-X75 power output have not been released yet but with each electric motor producing 400bhp, you should see an overall power output somewhere in the region of 900 to 1000 bhp.
Jaguar aim to keep the Jaguar as light as possible so most of the car will be made from lightweight carbonfibre and the brakes from ceramic to help keep the overall weight down and they will also help in stopping the C-X75. Jaguar claims the C-X75 will be able to hit 0-62mph in around 3 seconds with 0-100mph in less than six seconds and then go on to hit its 200mph top speed without any problems. This will make the C-X75 the fastest Jaguar car from 0-100mph ever, even putting it on the same playing field as the Bugatti Veyron, but Jaguar says the C-X75 will produce a lot less emissions and could even rival the average family car for emission levels. Jaguar claims that in certain modes the emission level could be as low as 70g/km of CO2. It will also have an electric power mode where it can run for 30 miles without producing any emission what so ever. But to unleash the Jaguar C-X751000bhp of power Track mode is what you will need to switch it too.
The Jaguar C-X75 can also if needed be plugged into the mains to charge the lithium-ion batteries which drive the motors and four wheel drive is available through a specially designed lightweight system. With all the weight saving materials, the Jaguar C-X75 should handle and out perform any Ferrari, Lamborghini and McLaren currently out there. Williams will prove to be very valuable when it comes down to the exotic materials on show and again with due to experience in aerodynamics and other F1-associated technologies. Jaguar says we should expect the C-X75 to look identical to that of the concept seen at the Paris motor show which boasted flowing lines and a rear end which was inspired by the XJ13 Le Mans racer. Not much information has been released about the Inside of the C-X75 but we should expect to see a whole host of specially made fittings with display screens showing all the vital and necessary information about the car. The first batch of Jaguar C-X75 will be ready to go on sale in 2013 costing between £700,000 and £900,000.
