The Jaguar C-X16 Concept Revealed
Jaguar's C-X16 compact sports car, which has just been shown at the Frankfurt Motor Show is the Company's smallest car since the 1954, XK120. It is a compact, rear-wheel drive, two-seater, underpinned by immensely strong aluminium architecture with 50:50 weight distribution. The C-X16 is powered by an supercharged 3.0-litre V6 producing heaps of power and torque. A hybrid system controlled by a steering-wheel mounted 'Push to Pass' button boosts output also.
It has a top speed of 300 km/h, and can reach the legal speed limit faster than a flick of a lamb's tail. Excellent overtaking acceleration is most useful for safe driving when stuck behind a slow BMW/Merc/Audi (we've all been there).
I am sure they will build it. So much to do, so little time.
