Jaguar releases C-X75 : 850-hp,hybrid supercar struts its speed

Jaguar engineers combined a 1.6-liter turbo supercharged four-cylinder engine (that delivers 502 horsepower) with two electric motors (390 horsepower) for a total output that exceeds 850 horsepower.

After several years of tinkering, Jaguar once again chats up the jaw-dropping C-X75 hybrid supercar.

When the car's at a complete standstill, racers cranking the C-X75's seven-speed manual transmission can achieve 0-100 mph in less than six seconds. If that's not fast enough for you, the theoretical top speed of 220 mph should set you straight, or at least put you in the next county quite quickly. The C-X75's carbon composite chassis undoubtedly assists in creating a very light footprint.

In recent years, the trend in supercars has been driving towards efficiency—lighter weight, smaller engines, and, as is crucially important in tax-heavy Europe, lower CO2 emissions. A spec sheet notes that the C-X75 outputs CO2 emissions at a less-than-Prius rate of 89 grams per kilometer,which would put it in the lowest emissions class in the UK, but the company doesn't specify under what conditions. When running strictly in electric mode, the C-X75 can travel about 37 miles while outputting zero emissions which means—if you've got a light foot—you could putter around town in one of the world's fastest cars without using a drop of gas.

This car is lovely, and its carbon chassis, gorgeous suspension, and active aerodynamics all combine for a mouth-watering package.
