Jaguar has released details of the C-X16 concept ahead of its world debut at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show.

Looking firmly to the future, the C-X16 marks a new chapter for Jaguar. The two-seater concept has inspired new advances in design, in engineering and in vehicle technology to create the most compact and responsive Jaguar in a generation. A hybrid, the C-X16 combines searing performance wîth beautifully realised styling.

Adrian Hallmark, Global Brand Director, Jaguar Cars:'The C-X16 embodies the established Jaguar strengths of sensual design, animal-like agility and inspirational performance and combines these wîth attributes that set us on a course to create sustainable sports cars of the future.'

Ian Callum, Director of Design, Jaguar Cars:'Jaguars have always been dramatically different. With the C-X16 we have moved the current award-winning design language on to the next generation, creating a car that is the very essence of future Jaguar performance.'

Únder the muscular clamshell bonnet is a next-generation supercharged V6 petrol engine producing 380 PS (280kW) and 332 lb ft (450 Nm) of torque. Already boasting a high specific power output of 126 PS-per-litre, the performance of the C-X16 is further supplemented by a Formula 1-inspired hybrid boost system wîth a §teering-wheel mounted button for on-demand acceleration.

Vital Stats
Engine : 3.0 L., 6-cylinder
Power: 375 hp
Torque: 332 ft-lbs

8-speed Automatic
Integrated into the eight-speed gearbox is a motor generator which draws power from a 1.6kWh battery pack mounted behind the seats for ideal 50:50 weight distribution. Charged through a brake energy regeneration system, the batteries allow the motor to provide an additional 95 PS (70 kW) and173 lb ft (235 Nm).

Mounted in an aluminium chassis structure, the result is 0-62 mph acceleration in 4.4 seconds, a top speed of 186 mph and acceleration from 50-75 mph of 2.1 seconds. The C-X16 is also able to travel at speeds of up to 50 mph under electric power alone and has CO2 emissions of 165 g/km.

The C-X16 measures 4,445 mm in length, 2,048 mm in width and 1,297 mm in height and has a wheelbase measuring 2,622 mm. In terms of overall length, the C-X16 is the smallest Jaguar created since 1954 and the XK120.

The C-X16 will be presented at the Jaguar Land Rover press conference in Hall Five at the Frankfurt Motor Show on Tuesday September 13 at 09:15 CET.

Jaguar's C-X16 production concept today made its North American debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show. Ahead of its appearance at the show the all-aluminium C-X16, finished in Neutron White, added a future-lòòking aspect to the contemporary LA evening skyline on East 6th Street Bridge having first prowled downtown on Mesquit and Matteo Streets.

Adrian Hallmark, Global Brand Director, Jaguar Cars, said: 'Jaguar has always had a sporting heart, and the C-X16 is the perfect embodiment of our vision for a true 21st century Jaguar sports car. It's fast, it's beautiful, and it also highlights our commitment to the development of sustainable powertrain technologies.

'As it's an indication of how a Jaguar sports car may look in the future, we're eager to gauge the reaction to the C-X16 here in the important North American market, and the Los Angeles Auto Show provides us wîth the perfect platform to do so'.

A stunning vision of Jaguar's future intent in the sports car §egmènt, the C-X16 features perfect 50:50 weight distribution and a prototype hybrid powertrain comprising a 380PS (280kW), 332lb ft (450Nm) supercharged 3.0-litre V6 petrol engine, allied to an electric motor producing an additional 70kW and 235Nm (equivalent to 95PS and 173lb ft). Driving the rear wheels through an eight-speed transmission, this hybrid powertrain gives the lightweight C-X16 the potential to accelerate to 62mph in 4.4 seconds before going on to reach 186mph.

The C-X16's Neutron White aluminium bodywork is wrapped as tightly as possible around its advanced mechanicals, its lithe stance highlighting its dynamic ability. The use of simple but purposeful lines allied to a low sweeping roof and tail give the C-X16 a muscular but sculptured look that can only be a Jaguar.

Ian Callum, Director of Design, Jaguar Cars, said: 'A Jaguar sports car should have clear visual movement in its design, and the C-X16 is the perfect demonstration of that goal. Each of its lines begins wîth a sense of purpose, and ends wîth a sense of clarity.

'It's that approach that has given the C-X16 its purposeful stance, and nowhere has that been more in evidence than when I saw it here on the streets of LA. Look at the C-X16 and you want to drive it - and that's just how a Jaguar sports car should make you feel.'
