LA 2011: Jaguar C-X16 Concept Readying for Takeoff

An updated version of the Jaguar C-X16 Concept was presented at the LA Auto Show earlier today.

It was clear as soon as Jaguar debuted their C-X16 concept at the 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show that the British company had updated their 2-door coupe. As the new model inches ever so closely towards production, Jaguar had changed the paint scheme to White Pearl and released more information as to what the showroom version will look like. Jaguar is certain to take out the carbon fiber racing seats and red leather interior when the production version of the C-X16 launches.

It will, however, keep the E-Type tribute side-opening rear hatch. Still up in the air is the viability of the hybrid power system, though it will definitely run on a supercharged 3.0-liter V6 engine that works in conjunction with an electric motor. The pair of powertrains will combine to put out 468hp and 505lb-ft of torque leading to a 0-60mph time of 4.4 seconds and a top speed of 186mph.
