Built to celebrate the Jaguar’s 75th anniversary, the C-X75 Concept looks forward to the future while honoring marque’s heritage and design. It seems like the design team has collected DNA from Jaguar’s long list of period supercars including the C-Type, D-Type and E-Type, as well more recent speedsters like the XJ220, and put it all together in the C-X75.
Boasting of an electric/gas turbine power source that generates 780 hp, this car is all set to redefine the future of supercars. A powerful machine, the C-X75 can reach speeds of 62 mph in 3.4 second. What is more, the batteries have enough charge to carry the C-X75 68 miles on electric power alone. The C-X75 can also refill its electric power with two micro gas turbines, paired midships, that generate 94 hp each, offering nearly 500 miles of additional range. The turbine can operate independently as well.
In the cabin, Jaguar has designed a series of new touchscreens, including one that can mimic the dash of a D-Type. The center dash also sports a Bremont-designed clock, and instead of speakers, the Bowers & Wilkins sound system uses transducers lining the doors and bulkhead in a honeycomb pattern, creating a system that can actively cancel some of the noise from the mini jet engines behind the passengers’ spines.
If it can put some of the C-X75’s technological bounty into a real vehicle, Jaguar could craft a few more years as glorious as any from the previous 75.
