Jaguar C-X75 Concept

Jaguar actually surprised the Paris Motor Show audience by revealing their concept car, the C-X75.

It is an extremely futuristic electric supercar with extraordinary levels of visual appeal and technical features. It’s an all-wheel-drive car with four powerful 145kW (195bhp) electric motors – one for each wheel – produce 780bhp and an astonishing total torque output of 1600Nm (1180lb ft).

And it’s a range-extended EV, which means it comes with its own onboard power generator in form of a lightweight micro gas-turbines system that recharges the batteries giving the car a theoretical range of 900km (560 miles), spinning at 80,000 rpm and generating just 28 g/km of co2.

And if you think that’s astonishing, wait until you hear about its performance! It sprints from 0-100km/h (62mph) in just 3.4 seconds and blistering acceleration from 80-145km/h (50-90mph) in just 2.3 seconds, and can reach a top speed of 330km/h (205mph). It’s insane!
