One of the star attractions of the 2010 Paris Auto Show has been the C-X75 concept from Jaguar. This car should dispel all doubts that anyone might have about the company’s car making abilities. However, while the C-X75 has been a huge success as a concept car, Jaguar still has to prove the C-X75 is not just about a design study but can well be made road worthy. And the good thing is, that is going to be a reality soon as now with Tata’s backing, Jaguar is all set to progress to the production stages with the concept model. It is expected that the cars would be out in 2013 and 2015 though its production will be limited to just 250 units. Also, the company has stated the cars would be sport based with Williams F1 team also chipping in to make the project a reality.
Director of Design Jaguar Cars, Ian Callum said, “We were always determined that the Jaguar C-X75 would be as striking on the road as it was in concept form. This will be the finest looking and most innovative Jaguar ever produced. Even in the world of supercars, we can still produce the most beautiful.”
The production car would not be having the jets that are found on the concept but would have the four electric motors that are connected to each axle. The engine of the production model would be a supercharged 1.6L gasoline one. There are possibilities of the jets coming up in later production cars as Tata owns a big stake in Bladon jets. Even without this one single feature the production car is expected to be grouped under the phenomenal genre.
