The Jaguar C-X75 concept was a product of design heritage and a celebration of technology.
Jaguar recently produced this video showing the creation process of their C-X75 concept. And it is quite possible the best four minutes of our day so far as we can see in greater detail the time and effort put in. Drawing inspiration from their one-off XJ13 that was originally built for Le Mans duty (but wasn't eligible in the end due to new regulations), chief designer Ian Callum and his team have crafted a drop-dead gorgeous machine.
First revealed a year ago at the 2010 Paris Motor Show, the C-X75 is powered by four 194hp electric motors, one for each wheel, which produces a total of 780hp and 1,180 lb-ft of torque.
What powers these motors are two diesel-powered micro gas turbines in place of a conventional gasoline-powered engine. Jaguar has stated that C-X75 will make production, but its engine technology will not be in the final version because of ongoing development.
