Not to be outdone by other companies at the Goodwood Festival of Speed this weekend, Jaguar popped up with a prototype C-X75 hypercar for a run on the hill. The car is one of only five cars in existence and will only take part in the race – meaning no public display for the festival attendees.
The C-X75 specs include a 1.6-liter, supercharged and turbocharged four-cylinder engine. The engine is small but generates a massive, electric and petrol-powered 850 hp.
Jaguar previously shut down plans for the C-X75 full production but has apparently decided to deploy the car as the testbed for the company’s research into next-generation powertrains.
The state-of-the-art hybrid supercar has the efficiency of a low-emissions city car, producing 89g/km of CO2 and running 60 km in electric mode. The C-X75 can hit 100 mph from standstill in under six seconds and tops out at 220 mph.
