Jaguar C-X75 Concept has been unveiled at the Paris Auto Show, it is an extended-range electric coupe, along with a electric/gas turbine power products 780 horsepower, according to the official it is considering production.

The styling is award-winning design with something new and evolved, and mixes a number of cues from Jaguar’s modern lineup. Jaguar C-X75 Concept revives the promise of the XJ13 two-seat supercar from the 1966. C-X75 was created with future production models in mind, but this one was designed to show what the company can do.

The Jaguar C-X75 is 2,970-pound, it is equiped with two 96-horsepower micro gas turbines, which products two 96-horsepower micro gas turbines that pump juice into a plug-in li-ion battery pack. That in turn powers four 195-horsepower electric motors, one at each wheel, for a total of 780 horsepower and 1,187 pound-feet of torque. Jaguar C-X75 can hit 62 mph in 3.4 seconds, with a 10.3-second dispatch of a quarter mile. The batteries carry enough energy to carry the two-seater 68 miles on electric power alone. The top speed is pegged at 205 mph.

The British company Bladon Jets supplies the gas turbines. Turbines are said to offer a number of advantages over conventional piston engines: They do not need oil lubrication or water cooling, which saves weight, and can run on a range of fuels.

The interior, Jaguar has designed a series of new touchscreens. The center dash also sports a Bremont-designed clock, and instead of speakers, the Bowers & Wilkins sound system uses transducers lining the doors and bulkhead in a honeycomb pattern, creating a system that can actively cancel some of the noise from the mini jet engines behind the passengers’ spines.

Jaguar has embodied the highs and lows of Britain’s auto industry.  It is studying the feasibility of building 1,000 to 2,000 C-X75s a year.
