Turbine-charged supercat

Jaguar has lifted the lid on the new Jaguar C-X75 concept supercar. The concept could become Jaguar's first mega performance vehicle since the cancellation of the XJ220 in 1994.

When Jaguar introduces the supercar at the Paris Motorshow, they will drop a bombshell. The car will race to 300 km/h n 15.7 seconds, over a second faster than the Bugatti Veyron. However, where the Veyron continues on to 407 km/h, the C-X75 tops out at 330 km/h. The concept uses four 195-horsepower electric motors to launch the car from 0-100 km/h in 3.4 seconds, and to 161 km/h in 5.5 seconds.

However, this is not an all-electric model. The car uses two small turbine engines capable of running on compressed natural gas, diesel, biofuel and LPG. The turbines make the car an extended range hybrid, and provide the car with the capability to travel further than its 68-mile battery-only distance. The car can actually travel an impressive 560 miles without stopping. This is thanks to lithium-ion batteries, and turbines which can allegedly spin up to 80,000 rpm. These UK-sourced turbines have never been used on a car before, according to the automaker.

More information regarding the 4.6-meter long, 1350-kilogram Jaguar C-X75 concept will be available when it debuts in Paris.

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.
