Jaguar C-X75 conceptDual jet turbines? Bet nobody else you know has a car with those!
-You can stand right next to this car and maybe not know it's a Jag. Wow! It's the C-X75 Concept. That's Concept with a capital C. This one is way out there. It's conceived as an electric super coupe, 778 horsepower, and get this, 1178 foot pounds of torque, going out to motors that live at each wheel. That's the combined total. It will get you to 205 miles an hour or 60 in 3.5 seconds. What's really fascinating is where the electricity comes from. A pair of turbines, basically little jet engines in the back but not pushing the car like a plane, instead spinning generators at really high RPMs to create a lot of bolts. In fact, this car's track mode would power those 4 inwheel electric motors directly not via the battery because those turbines can spin those generators so hard. I just wanna hear what that would sound like. In more sober conditions, Jaguar imagines this car would have an electric driving range of 560 miles. It's a range extender architecture, kind of like a Chevy Volt, well, sort of. Don't look for this one in showrooms anytime soon, but Jag is working on a hybrid that will be for sale.
