So, Jaguar wants to produce in series C-X75 supercar. Like in the case of X220, there will be some "small" changes...
Manufacturer in Coventry don't have a very glorious history when it comes to supercars.
By the time when Ferrari Testarossa and Lamborghini Diablo
wet the adolescent dreams, the British came out with superb XJ220, but unfortunately, people were lied by the... car engine: instead of a promised V12, behind the driver was a twin-turbo V6.
Even four-wheel drive was no longer part of the menu and, for the situation to be complete, the base price of the supercar was about 30% higher.
Obviously, the Jaguar XJ
220 respects supercar status with incredible performance for mid-90s, but neither the acceleration or speed did not wash its sins.
Back in our days, Jaguar prepared a new "business". Its name is yet unknown, but we do know that is the series version of the concept C-X75. Well, it's improperly said: just as in the case of XJ220, new supercar will ignore the technique recipe of the prototype with the role of emissary.
Instead of fascinating micro gas solutions, for example, we see a "four-cylinder" gasoline turbocharged and supercharged supercharger (that's right, the engine reaches 500 hp and 10,000 rpm). As for the ecological aggregates, they will be two in number, not four like the concept.
And that, you believe it or not, is the least of C-X75 problem.
In its days, XJ220 was the fastest car on the market. It lasted two years until was released the phenomenal McLaren F1. Well, C-X75 will have no claim in this matter.
Will be in platoon, with a 0-100 km / h in about three seconds and a top speed of 320 km / h. Instead, you have an absolutely embarrassing price: each of the 250 copies proposed will cost - drums, please - over one million dollars.
So, to recap. Instead of mini-fighter plane we have a sort of Prius stuffed with Synthol, beautifully packaged. Instead of a Veyron-killer we have a victim for Aventador. And since we speak about Lamborghini flagship, it will be three times cheaper.
Sure, by 2014, since the launch of C-X75 series, is a long time. And, in all that time, Jaguar will collect reactions, opinions and... earnest.
If things are no good, it means that people are smarter and islanders have to change something. If that "maneuver" will be good, it means that they're good at this stuff.
And we will remove the hat, while we suggest a film entitled "The British Job" ...
