2010 Paris Auto Show: Jaguar C-X75 Concept Live Photos

Follow John

Jaguar's C-X75 concept car, designed to celebrate the marque's 75th anniversary and unveiled today at the 2010 Paris Auto Show, is nothing if not a striking design.

And its technology is equally as stunning: it's an extended-range electric car with 68 miles of range on a lithium-ion battery pack.

Housed under the deck behind the passengers are a pair of 70-kilowatt gas microturbines that turn generators to provide current to the four 145-kW electric drive motors that power all four wheels once the battery is depleted.

Even more remarkable, the turbines can also power the electric drive motors directly at high speeds, in what Jaguar calls "Track" mode, for a top speed of 205 mph.

There's full coverage of the car and its technology elsewhere. This photo gallery is simply to let you enjoy the looks of the car, both inside and out.

[Jaguar]

  1. Looks great from the side and the back. Looks like a Toyota MR2 from the front. What happened to the good looks of the XJ220?

    Bad stuff?

  2. Overal looks like the current mitsu eclipse (not a good thing) with the back end of a vette stingray (could be worse).
    overall this doesn't say jag to me. I don't like it.

  3. I'm seeing styling cues from the Aston Martin One-77, Maserati Gran Turismo, the Lamborghini Murciélago, and the BMW M1 Concept.

  4. There's a resemblance to the Lotus Evora in the first picture. The rest looks nothing of Jaguar except for the grill.

  5. Looks wise - I'd prefer the concept Mitsubishi RA by far. Man I wish that car would be built.

  6. What's with the Tesla look-alike design? Why not an XJ13 based design?

  7. Back end looks a little Playstation GT by Citroen.
    Sign me up for the pre-order if this thing ever makes production. Definate alternative to Porsche 918.

  8. Back in 2004, I mentioned that I had worked on a mock up of such a concept. Turbine engines are brilliantly efficient, and I questioned the use of Piston based engines like the Fisker and Volt, as archaic in concept, when Turbine (jet) engines were far lighter and could deliver real world performance to rival and exceed that of even petrol engines!
    I am delighted, unfortunately, my path led me elsewhere, yet I am delighted to see this first iteration!

  9. I'm quite pleased with the design direction Jag is taking. No more retro-styled pipe and slippers stuff.
    Also excited about their real-world products in general. Finally back at the cutting edge, as they were in the beginning. Knock 'em dead chaps!
