Just how much the body shape in general and the rear in particular will differ once Williams gets to work in the wind tunnel will be interesting to watch
Jaguar’s stunningly beautiful C-X75 hybrid concept that wowed Salon L’automobile last October in Paris, is to be produced in a limited edition of 250 vehicles with prices beginning at GBP700,000 (US$1.15 million) and running to GBP900,000 (US$1.5 million). The C-X75 will be developed in association with Formula One constructor Williams F1 and though the specification has changed significantly from the Paris car the 330 km/h C-X75 will still be one of the fastest production cars in the world particularly off the line where its 0-60 mph time will be well under the magical 3.0 second mark. Similarly, the electric-only range has more than halved from the concept’s 110 km to just 50 km. The twin 80,000 rpm micro gas-turbine range extenders of the concept car have been replaced with a compact internal combustion engine and there are now two electric motors (one on each axle), instead of the concept’s four. How close the production model will come to the concept’s 780 bhp and 1600 Nm torque output was not revealed.
