The new Jaguar C-X75 concept vehicle has been officially unveiled at this year’s Paris Motor Show and it is one special beast. Continuing to commemorate the brand’s 75th anniversary, the Jaguar C-X75 concept is powered by four electric motors, one for each wheel. If that’s not ultra-modern enough, there are micro gas-turbines that generate electricity for the batteries. The two gas-turbines can generate as much as 140kW of power offering the “range-extended electric supercar” a range of up to 900km.
In total the Jaguar C-X75 develops 800 bhp and a stomach-turning 1200 lb-ft of torque. With this massive serve of raw power, the Jaguar C-X75 is able to shift from standing to 100 km/h in just 3.4 seconds and up to a top speed of 330km/h. Good times. Apparently the concept can run on just its batteries for around 100km before the twin turbines engage and extend the range to it’s full 900km.
Naturally the C-X75 is built with the help of lightweight aluminum construction techniques and features active aerodynamics, including a complex underbody Venturi system.
Inside, the seats are fixed in place, with the steering wheel, instruments and pedals moving to accommodate the driver. Three high-res TFT screens present driver information, with readouts and displays changeable between all of the screens
Jaguar hasn’t announced whether or not it will put the Jaguar C-X75 concept into production, but it’s fairly clear this is a pure concept vehicle with little to no production consideration. However, it may feature some technologies the iconic carmaker will use in its next 75 years.
