Jaguar to launch C-X75 supercar in 2013
The Jaguar C-X75, the breath-taking hybrid supercar that stole the spotlight at the Paris motor show, will become reality in late 2013.
Jaguar announced plans on Friday morning in London to build a production version of the car, and it will make just 250 examples from 2013 to 2015 as part of a partnership with Williams F1. Pricing will start at about $1.1 million, and more ordering and technical information will be available on Sept. 1.
The C-X75 project will continue to use that name, but an “appropriate” moniker will be selected for the production car, officials said. It will use an internal-combustion engine that works with two electric motors. Jaguar says it can run in hybrid, electric and track modes.
The supercar will be capable of a 200-mph top speed, can hit 60 mph in less than three seconds and can sprint to 100 mph in less than six seconds. It will use a carbon-fiber chassis.
“This is Jaguar at its best,” brand chief Adrian Hallmark said.
Williams F1 will assist in the development of the C-X75 as part of a new partnership.
In a surprising announcement, Jaguar announced ambitious plans to add engineers and workers to help design and build its new supercar.
The C-X75 was named AutoWeek's Best in Show at the 2010 Paris motor show.

Well... there were questions about Tata's 1st Jaguar without Ford. I'd say they hit it out of the park.
