Jaguar is going to produce the C-X75 concept that was unveiled at the Paris Motor Show, last fall, by late 2013.
The new Jaguar supercar will be developed with help from the Williams Formula 1 team. Tata chief Carl-Peter Forster stated this morning that the deal between Jaguar’s parent company, Tata and the Williams F1 team will affect everything Jaguar does for decades to come. The Williams F1 team will be providing weight-saving technology and engine technology directly related to the four-cyl Williams engine.
The production version of the C-X75 concept will be powered by a plug-in hybrid system with dual electric motors and a four-cylinder engine with all-wheel-drive.
“People expect us to be innovators,” says Adrian Hallmark, Jaguar brand director. “The C-X75 received an incredible reception as a concept car. We’ve been building on that momentum and there is a clear business case for the exclusive halo model. No other vehicle will better signify Jaguar’s renewed confidence and excellence in technological innovation than this.”
Jaguar is only planning on producing 250 units of the yet to be named supercar with prices starting around £700,000.
