Jaguar C-X75 Upcoming Hybrid, Minus the turbines production in 2013

Jaguar’s C-X75 concept was the most stunning car unveiled at the 2010 Paris motor show. Jaguar has announced that they will be working with Williams F1 on the creation of the car, which is set to launch in 2013. In addition to making a fast car with sleek looks to match, Jaguar hasn’t turned a blind eye to the environment either stating that it will be an eco-friendly hybrid vehicle. It boasted a hybrid power train, mixing electric motors and microturbines that would make it go from 0 to 60 mph in 3.4 seconds. Now Jaguar says it will build a limited production run of 250 vehicles.
