It’s been a while since we saw anything nearly as jaw-dropping as the C-X75 rolling out of Jaguar’s assembly lines. This stunning supercar, designed to give the likes of Lamborghini and Ferrari a lot to worry about, has been subjected to lots and lots of time on the drawing board and the automobile manufacturer has persistently been developing this beauty since quite a while now. With a roaring 1.6-liter turbo supercharged four-cylinder engine nestled beneath its hood, the Jaguar C-X75 also packs two electric motors. Together, these power houses churn out a whopping 850 horsepower with the gas-powered engine producing 502 horsepower and the electric motors producing 390 horsepower.
With a seven-speed manual transmission added on to boost this car’s oomph, the Jag races to the 100mph mark in less than six seconds! Breath taking as it is, the car sails to its theoretical top speed of 220 mph too.
Jaguar has used a specially designed carbon composite chassis that helps reduce the weight of the car, significantly increasing its power-to-weight ratio and making it a not-so-surprisingly quick machine.
