Jaguar C-X75 Continues Progress

By | February 20, 2012

Jaguar is continuing work on its exquisite C-X75 and recently announced the next step of the project, building the gas powered turbine engines.  With plans to produce just 250 C-X75’s between 2013 and 2015, there’s a lot of work to do to get such a revolutionary ride ready for the road.

Jaguar C-X75 Debut

If you missed the introduction of the C-X75 last year at the Paris auto show, I can tell you that missed a piece of history.  Not since the Jaguar XJ220 was built in the early nineties has there been a jaguar as cool as this.  Like the XJ220, the C-X75 is going to have some serious performance capabilities and though the C-X75 will be doing it in a more green fashion, it is no less exciting.  The XJ220 made big power out of small displacement and it was brutally fast.  The C-X75 is going to be brutally fast with even smaller displacement and I will use a very different method of propulsion.  Let’s just say if I were Batman the C-X75 would be my daily driver.

The Bland Jets Engineering facility in Coventry, England will employ a slim 15 people that will be assigned the task of building the hybrid turbine engines.  I’ve been slow to accept the hybrid car movement and I’m still not a huge fan of the economy hybrids like the Prius.  However, if I can travel 31 miles on one charge, blast to 60 mph in 3.4 seconds and achieve 200 mph in a car that sounds like a jet fighter and looks like liquid motion… count me in.  The only problem is, you can bet this super Jag isn’t going to come cheap.  Here’s to dreams and fantasies.

I absolutely love this thing!  Have you seen the C-X16?

A turbine-powered car is an awesome idea if for nothing more than lighting the tailgater behind you on fire.

@facebook-507317951:disqus , oh yeah.  That is one slick ride as well.  I’m digging Jag right now.  I’d still love an old E-Type though. :)
