The Jaguar C-X75 Gives Cars & Coffee a Conceptual Caffeine Boost

The Jaguar C-X75 concept made a real world appearance at Cars & Coffee in Irvine, CA yesterday. The C-X75 not only gives a good indication of Jaguar's future but it's also all Jaaag.

It's no secret Jaguar has looked into the possibility of making this hybrid electric/gas turbine design exercise a reality. Besides being very easy on the eyes, Jaguar created a hybrid design to move the car that is unlike any other. The C-X75 has four 195 hp electric motors (one at each wheel) and a lithium-ion battery pack. When the juice runs out, there are two micro gas turbines that will provide nearly 500 miles of additional range.

Like any concept car, the C-X75 has some impressive numbers. The combination of electric motors and gas turbines produce 780 hp and 1187 lb.-ft. of torque. According to Jaguar this is good for a 3.4 second 0-to-62 MPH time and a 10.3 second ¼ mile time on the way to an estimated theoretical 205 mph top speed.

Whether or not the C-X75 ever makes it to production, it sure is one beautiful cat on or off the Cars & Coffee tarmac.
