Jaguar C-X75 Concept unveiled at the Paris Motor Show
Jaguar revealed the new C-X75 concept supercar. The times, which the company announced are very, very optimistic. They suggest that their C-X75 will be able to beat Bugatti Veyron from 0 to 300 km/h. However, the time is 15.7 seconds, over a second faster than the Veyron.
The concept is powered by 4 electric engines with 195hp (145kW), each, which means an overall power of 780bhp (580kW). The acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h takes 3.4 seconds and to 160 km/h, just 5.5 seconds. The top speed of C-X75 is 330 km/h.
The car is not an all-electric model, because it uses two small turbine engines capable of running on compressed natural gas, diesel, biofuel and LPG. They can extend the range of the car with 68 miles.
The Lithium-ion battery pack provides 560 miles (900km) without stopping.
