Unveiled as a design concept, pointing the way towards the styling of the British automaker’s future models, the C-X75 may see production after all.
When unveiled at the Paris Auto Show last week, Jaguar was firm in its statement that the 780-hp electric supercar was not destined for the road, but after being what might just be the biggest hit of the show, that may change.
According to a report by AutoCar, sources inside Jag are hinting that the C-X75 could see production in a limited number: anywhere from 1,000 units to 2,000 units.
But don’t expect to see such a car any time soon. According to Jaguar powertrain boss Tony Harper it would take two or three years to fully develop the gas-turbine technology shown in the concept, and another three to four years to put it into the car.
As far-fetched an idea it is to think of the C-X75 in production, many of Jag’s competitors (including BMW, Audi, Mercedes and Porsche) are all currently working towards models that will compete a this level.
