Why Did The Jaguar CX-75 Have To Go?!?
The jaguar CX-75 could have been one the UK’s most successful super cars, at its time it was supposed to be a fourth musketeer to the trio of Porsche 918 spyder, McLaren P1 and Ferrari LaFerrari. Its supercharger and turbocharger produced an astounding 502bhp (850bhp with all power) at 10,000rpm. It had a hybrid engine that could supply a consistent 300kW but amazingly efficient in the regards that each electric motor (positioned on each axle) produced 194bhp and weighed 20kg each! The innovative engineering incorporated into this car made it revolutionary. Performance-wise it could get up to 0-60 in less than 3.0s and 0-100 in 6.0, pushing it into Mclaren territory. However...
Britain’s first hybrid supercar sadly never got far in the production line. Jaguar planned to produce 250 of these masterpieces but of course they never did. Why? Because of economic issues of course! It was said not to make an “adequate return on the investment” despite selling the cars for £1,000,000. Jaguar said that “to bring to the market, an £800,000-£1,000,000 supercar just feels wrong,” due to the, “global environment and austerity.”
To many this is devastating and I have NOT gotten over it. As said frequently, “It was TOO good for us!.”
