Jaguar Teams up with Williams to make C-X75 Hybrid Super Car
Jaguar has confirm that it will launch the remarkable C-X75 concept car as an exclusive hybrid supercar.
The Jaguar C-X75 will become the Jaguar’s most advanced model to date. It is claimed that It will offer performance on a par with the fastest production cars on the market, while adopting cutting-edge technology that offers remarkably economical running. Jaguar expects this hybrid supercar to deliver incredibly low CO2 emissions of less than 99g/km while being able to achieve in excess of 200mph.
People expect Jaguar to be innovators – that is when Jaguar is at its best, The C-X75 received an incredible reception as a concept car. We’ve been building on that momentum and there is a clear business case for this exclusive halo model. No other vehicle will better signify Jaguar’s renewed confidence and excellence in technological innovation than this.
said Adrian Hallmark, Jaguar Brand Director.
Project C-X75 will be the ultimate expression of Jaguar design and engineering innovation. The supercar will stay true to the initial concept that made its debut at the 2010 Paris motor show.
We were always determined that the Jaguar C-X75 would be as striking on the road as it was in concept form.This will be the finest looking and most innovative Jaguar ever produced. Even in the world of supercars, we can still produce the most beautiful.
said Ian Callum, Director of Design, Jaguar Cars
In an unprecedented move, Jaguar C-X75 will be developed in association with Williams F1 who will provide their engineering expertise in areas including aerodynamics, carbon composite manufacture and hybrid technologies. This association will be at the leading edge of British automotive engineering and innovation. It also marks a new milestone in both company’s histories as Jaguar Land Rover and Williams collaborate for the first time to produce one of the world’s highest performance and environmentally sustainable supercars. The production of Jaguar C-X75 will create more than one hundred highly-skilled jobs in the UK.
The car chassis will be made of carbon-fibre to create an lightweight, yet rigidly strong structure. Aiding the transition from concept to production vehicle is the choice of powertrain. Jaguar continues to develop the use of the micro-turbine technology that was showcased in the original concept C-X75. Jaguar’s parent company Tata has taken a significant stake in Bladon Jets, and will develop this technology as a medium-term aspiration that will play a part in Jaguars of the future.
When C-X75’s motors and combustion engine combine, it will be one of the fastest production cars in the world, with a sub-three second 0-60mph time and a top speed in excess of 200mph. Crucially, this performance will be generated alongside incredibly low emissions, with a target of less than 99g/km CO2, thanks to Project C-X75’s lightweight construction and cutting-edge powertrain technology.
