A Jaguar prototype that makes my heart beat faster! October 1, 2010Posted by truthspew in Uncategorized.
It seems Jaguar has got it’s game back. They have a new prototype called the C-X75 that is a TRUE hybrid in that the wheels are driven by electric motors, each capable of 195HP.
Those are backed by a Li-Ion battery pack under the seats that are backed up by twin gas turbines (Aka jet engines) that each generate 94BHP or 188BHP combined to drive a generator that tops off the battery pack or can send power directly to the wheels.
That’s pretty god damned slick. The gas tank can accommodate a range of fuels such as gasoline, diesel, CNG, and LPG. It’s a 60L tank which comes out to 15.8 gallons for we US people who never made the jump to metric. With a range of 560 miles it comes out to 35MPG for a car that does zero to 60 in 3.4 seconds. Thump-Thump, Thump-Thump.
I WANT ONE!
