Green Light For The Jaguar C-X75 To Produce

Jaguar will have on the 918 Porsche on track, except the title, with its hybrid supercar C-X75, its name change, and Jaguar will build just 250 examples of prices of £ 700,000 or more depending on the market and taxes. This "base" price is 1.151 million dollars based on recent exchange rates. Orders will be taken this fall, with deliveries starting in late 2013.

1.6-liter, greatly increases the gasoline internal combustion engine has four "is not just the fan," according to Jaguar Land Rover technical director Bob Joyce, combines two powerful electric motors and four-wheel-drive imports under three seconds 0 -60 mph space-time and 6 / 2 0 -100 km / h maximum speed of 200 mph. all-electric range of up to 31 km, and CO2 emissions Jaguar estimated at less than 99 grams per kilometer to bring the fuel consumption 55.2 mpg.

Williams F1 develop high profile, low-volume supercar, and contribute to aerodynamic carbon fiber, hybrid technology and know-how. The cars will be built in the UK, if the project is part of the Tata Motors $ 1,700,000,000 per year, five year investment in new technologies and products.

"Basically, I wanted to give the concept car. But in time, we can not do (2010 in the Paris concept), the gas turbine," says Joyce. "Piston design is suitable for transmission of the envelope. It 's like the transition from the Range Rover LRX is Evoque.

Do not use the current engine or power source based on F1, said Joyce, even if it uses the principles of the Williams F1.

Not much anticipated Boxster / Cayman struggle more urgent?

"We can not leave our current position of the mark only repeat what they have always done in the past," said Adrian Hallmark, director of global brand. "We have to pass the mark, then fill the gaps. And if the small sports car was better than the 911, the Boxster does not? And this is better than the 918? It's not a distraction for us. It fits perfectly with the rest of our future. "

The XJ220 1992-1994 took centuries to sell and was updated at the end of its course. Hallmark says things are different this time. "There are twice as many billionaires as there were only 10 years. They will judge this car for what it offers."

Hallmark does not say if Williams F1 is a sub-contractor or partner in the development and production of the car. "The details are trade secrets. But this is our project."

It does not matter if Jaguar makes money or not C-X75, said the Jaguar-Land Rover CEO Carl-Peter Forster. This is an employment program for engineers JLR 1000 will be used as part of Tata plans investment of five years. "This car is a step in developing future technologies for us. To explore the technologies that we need research. Here, customers can pay for it."
