Just like a miscarriage, the production version of the Jaguar C-X75 will not live to see the day light on the common street. According to global brand director Adrian Hallmark, the decision was made due to the ongoing global economic crisis.

"We feel we could make the car work, but looking at the global austerity measures in place now, it seems the wrong time to launch an £800,000 (S$1.56 Million) to £1 (S$1.97) million supercar," said Hallmark.

The C-X75 was presented as a concept at the 2010 Paris motor show featuring a hybrid drivetrain that included a pair of gas turbines and four electric motors. In May 2011, the concept was signed off for production with a 1.6-litre turbocharged and supercharged petrol engine and two electric motors. The 'unborn child' could generate as much as 888bhp and reach 100km/h from standstill in 2.8sec.

However, Jaguar commented that the investment in the C-X75 would not go down the drain as 60% of the technology developed would be utilized on future models.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
