Jaguar don't do concept cars very often, and over the last few years they've been particularly thin on the ground. But now they've returned to the concept car scene with a big splash called the Jaguar C-X75.

The Jaguar C-X75 concept was designed to celebrate 75 years of Jaguar, and at the same time provide a glimpse of what could be in the pipeline. Although Jaguar are keen to emphasise the fact the C-X75 is just a concept and not currently destined for production.

The Jaguar C-X75 is special in several different ways. First of all it's a mid engined supercar and it looks like one. Secondly, it doesn't look very Jaguar-ish - and if you think the new XJ looks a bit weird then that's a good thing. And thirdly it's got a very unusual drivetrain which is ludicrously powerful.

Starting with the layout, the Jaguar C-X75 concept is a low-slung, two-seat supercar with some distant and minor echoes of the legendary XJ220. It's got a great stance, and the proportions are almost perfect for a luxury hypercar.

"The C-X75 is everything a Jaguar should be. It possesses remarkable poise and grace yet at the same time has the excitement and potency of a true supercar. You could argue this is as close to a pure art form as a concept car can get and we believe it is a worthy homage to 75 years of iconic Jaguar design." Said Ian Callum, Jaguar's Design Director.

The Jaguar C-X75 features an underbody Venturi and directional exhaust gas control to keep the car as sleek, compact and low as possible while still generating immense amounts of grip and downforce.

Powering the Jaguar C-X75 is an innovative hybrid electric drivetrain. The car is capable of running in purely electric, zero tailpipe emissions mode for 68 miles (110km) on a six-hour domestic plug-in charge. However, unlike a conventional electric vehicle, the enjoyment of this supercar won't end there. The innovative, lightweight micro gas-turbines are capable of very quickly and efficiently recharging the Lithium-ion batteries, giving the car a theoretical range of 560 miles (900km) and can also automatically provide supplementary power directly to the motors when in Track mode.

But it's not the range that impresses most! The C-X75's propulsion system combines powerful 195hp electric motors at each wheel for outstanding performance. At the center of the car sit state-of-the-art, mid-mounted micro gas-turbines. These can either generate 188bhp to charge the batteries, or when in Track mode they provide supplementary power directly to the electric motors. The four electric motors provide torque-vectored, all-wheel drive traction and grip, essential in a car that produces 778bhp and 1600Nm (1180lb ft) of torque. That means the C-X75 can hit 62 mph (100km/h) in 3.4 seconds, and it tops out at 205 mph.

The Jaguar C-X75's interior is almost as impressive, with the driver and passenger seated in front of a sealed airbox that houses the micro gas-turbines. The seats are fixed to the bulkhead as in a single-seater racing car, and air to feed the turbines passes smoothly around them via channels in the structure of the body. With the seats anchored in place, the steering wheel, controls, main binnacle and pedal box all adjust towards the driver.
