Official Jaguar C-X16 Concept in White

Jaguar will showcase their latest concept, the Jaguar C-X16 Concept, at the Los Angeles Auto Show 2011. The sports car concept was released at the IAA 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show in September and received a new paint job. The C-X16 is displayed in the color Neutron White, looks stunning and will go into production as a coupe and convertible.

The two-seater concept marks a new future for Jaguar with respect to technique and design and show a model positioned under the XK-lineup. A next-generation supercharged V6 petrol engine producing 380hp and 450Nm of torque is combined with a Formula 1-inspired hybrid boost system with a steering-wheel mounted button for on-demand acceleration.

Integrated into the eight-speed gearbox is a motor generator which draws power from a 1.6kWh battery pack mounted behind the seats for ideal 50:50 weight distribution. Charged through a brake energy regeneration system, the batteries allow the motor to provide an additional 95hp and 235Nm. The final performance results are 0-100km/h in 4.4 seconds, a top speed of 300km/h and acceleration from 80-120km/h of 2.1 seconds.

The final setup of the production model will differ from the concept. It is unknown which engines will be used and which features of the sports car will stay.
