The Jaguar C-X75 Concept

Jaguar C-X75 supercar to pack a 500hp twincharged 4-cylinder

The Jaguar C-X75 is expected to be one of the highest performance hybrids of all time when it arrives in late 2013 or early 2014 and when it does, the ultra lightweight sports car will derive a large portion of its power from a tiny 1.6L 4-cylinder engine that packs an awesome 500 horsepower.

The Jaguar C-X75 as a concept used a pair of jet turbine engines to charge the hybrid electrical system but the production version of the Jaguar C-X75 will derive its battery charging capabilities from a twin charged 4-cylinder engine measuring just 1.6 liters. For those unfamiliar with the term “twin charging”, this indicates that the new 4-cylinder Jaguar engine will call on the help of both belt-driven supercharger and a traditional turbocharged driven by exhaust gas pressure to boost the output of this diminutive engine.

I would love to see one of these - I feel that the turbines getting dropped from the C-X75 is a shame, but it is still awesome - Thanks for the great info!!
