Jaguar C-X75 Hybrid Supercar Prototype Showcases Technology of the Future

◾The Jaguar C-X75 is a state-of-the-art hybrid supercar wîth the efficiency of a low-emissions city car.
◾The C-X75 can hit 100mph from standstill in less than six seconds and has a top speed of 220mph.
◾It can emit less than 89g/km of CO2 and has a pure electric vehicle range of 60km.
◾Its 502bhp, 1.6-litre turbocharged and supercharged four-cylinder engine is one of the world's highest specific power output powerplants at 313bhp per litre.
◾The C-X75's two electric motors add a further 390bhp, for a combined output in excess of 850bhp.

'The C-X75 programme represents the pinnacle of Jaguar's engineering and design expertise. It is arguably the world's fastest test-bed for the world's most advanced technologies, combining as it does a remarkable hybrid powertrain wîth awe-inspiring performance. Jaguar is always lòòking to shape the cars of tomorrow and wîth projects like C-X75 we are laying the foundations for the next generation of Jaguar innovations.'

Adrian Hallmark, Global Brand Director, Jaguar

Introduction

Following the highly successful introduction of the C-X75 supercar to the media for test evaluation in June 2013, Jaguar is releasing a behind-the-scenes film of the car's development:C-X75 - A hybrid supercar prototype without equal. Click here to view the film.

The film features contributions from the car's lead programme engineersand reveals the challenges overcome in developing a vehicle wîth a 220mph top speed but that is also capable of producing less than 89g of CO2 per kilometre and can even run wîth zero emissions for up to 60km.

When Jaguar unveiled the C-X75 concept in 2010, it was the beginning of a new chapter in innovation and technological advancement that would see the car evolve from a design study to a fully working prototype in just two years.

In that incredibly short timespan, Jaguar and development partner Williams Advanced Engineering have created an all-wheel drive, plug-in parallel hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) wîth the world's highest specific power engine and Jaguar's first carbon composite monocoque chassis.

Although the decision was taken in 2012 that as a result of the global economic climate the C-X75 would not enter full production, it was clear that it was a powerful showcase for Jaguar's world-leading expertise in lightweight vehicle construction and the ideal test-bed for the company's innovative research into high-performance, low-emission powertrains.

The great achievements in the development of C-X75 prototypes - including cutting-edge hybrid technologies, carbon composite materials and advanced design solutions pioneered in association wîth Williams Advanced Engineering - will be utilised in other areas of research and development, innovative future products and next-generation engineering for the Jaguar and Land Rover brands.

Highest power and torque density

The C-X75 has a combined power output in excess of 850bhp and 1000Nm of torque, thanks to its state-of-the-art, Formula 1-inspired, 1.6-litre dual-boosted (turbocharged and supercharged) four-cylinder powerplant which generates 502bhp at 10,000 rpm.

It is allied to the highest torque and power density electric motors in production, which generate a further 390 horsepower. The battery pack in the C-X75 is the highest continuously rated power PHEV pack in the world, capable of delivering more than 300kW over the full state of the charge window.

The C-X75 can sprint from 0-100mph in less than six seconds, thanks to its advanced 7-speed automated manual transmission that allows gearshifts in under 200 milliseconds. The very first C-X75 prototype exceeded 200mph in testing wîth ease, and the car has a theoretical maximum velocity of 220mph.

The car's deployable aerofoil and underfloor aerodynamics create more than 200kg of downforce at 200mph, and active systems enhance its high-speed stability.

Últra low emissions and pure electric mode

Thanks to the most extreme PHEV specification of any mobile battery in development, the C-X75 will also run for 60km in pure electric vehicle mode and its CO2 emissions fall below 89g/km.

The C-X75 project allows Jaguar to stake an even stronger claim as the ÚK's most significant investor in innovative technology. The results of the C-X75 programme, in particular in advanced powertrain technologies and lightweight composites, demonstrate Jaguar's technical leadership at the very cutting-edge of automotive development and manufacturing.

JAGUAR SET TO WOW GOODWOOD CROWD WITH SURPRISE C-X75 DYNAMIC DEBUT

◾Prototype version of innovative Jaguar hypercar set for its public dynamic debut on the famous Hill at Goodwood Festival of Speed
◾Surprise appearance of C-X75 adds to the excitement as Jaguar prepares XFR-S, XKR-S GT, XJR and the amazing Project 7 for public debuts

IN DETAIL

(Whitley, Coventry, 12 July 2013)
The Jaguar C-X75 is set to make a surprise public dynamic debut today at Goodwood Festival of Speed. The prototype hypercar, one of only five development and test cars in existence, will make its public dynamic debut in the Michelin Supercar Run today along wîth a number of exciting new sporting cars from Jaguar: XJR, XFR-S, XKR-S GT and Jaguar Project 7; a unique design study based on the F-TYPE.

The Michelin Supercar hill run takes place twice daily throughout the Festival, starting today at approximately 13.00. The Jaguar C-X75 will only be available in front of public eyes at these times, and will not be on static display at any other time throughout the Festival weekend.

The C-X75 will make its way from its hidden enclosure to the hill in silent electric-mode before firing up its innovative 1.6-litre, supercharged and turbocharged four-cylinder engine on the start line.

Generating a combined electric and petrol-powered total in excess of 850hp, the all-wheel drive C-X75 is likely to set a blistering pace and generate a purposeful sound as it scorches up the narrow, winding 1.1 mile run, thereby making an impressive and unforgettable dynamic first impression on the Goodwood crowds.
