Jaguar C-X75 Concept Car Shown Off At Paris Motor Show

There’s nothing like the motor show to look at those cars labeled concept. Typically, they look breathtakingly incredible, would offer ludicrous performance statistics, and will inevitably never be manufactured because of cost and practicality. And yet we all love to marvel at their beauty and wait for the day that they will be released to the public.

To be fair, though, concept cars are exactly that – a concept. And they tend to include some parts and some technologies that do make it into production. In some cases, the concept car itself may be altered sligthly before being mass produced.

We hope that the Jaguar C-X75 is one such car that makes it through the whole process because it is a stunner.

We tend to have a bit of a grumble over the looks of electric cars because we’re fairly certain they don’t have to look hideous to do their bit in reducing carbon footprints and the C-X75 would indicate exactly that. If it were put into production it may even lead the way in the design of such cars (well, you never know).

The C-X75 is a concept car so not avaialble for purchase but if it were then it would be a Lithium-ion battery powered green machine. Powered solely by the batteries it would run for around 70 miles on a single charge but part of the concept is that it also has hidden twin gas turbines that don’t propel the car but instead recharge the batteries giving the car a 500 mile or more reach.

It will reach 205mph, allegedly, and will fly to 62mph in 3.4 seconds. Each wheel has its own electric motor and it definitely looks more supercar than zero emissions green car to us. Don’t you agree?
