Jaguar’s stand at the Frankfurt Motor Show revealed what everyone was expecting from the British automaker, the C-X16 Concept, one of the most interesting vehicles presented at the German event, along with the facelifted versions of the XF, XK and XKR-S.
Even if the C-X16 Concept will not hit the production line and it won’t even preview a future generation of the powerful XKR, it was one of the most expected vehicles to come from the British automaker.
Jaguar says that its C-X16 Concept takes its power from a brand new 3.0 liter turbocharged V6 which is delivering 380 horsepower and 450 Nm of torque, along with a hybrid system with an electric motor integrated into the eight-speed automatic transmission, generating another 95 HP and 325 Nm of torque for a short time when the driver is pressing the “push to pass” button.
The two-seat concept can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in about four seconds, with a top speed of 300 km/h or 186 mph, while emitting 165g/km of CI2 in the European test cycle, making it “one of the greenest sports cars out there”, as the brand’s director, Adrian Hallmark, said.
Besides the most expected car which sadly won’t hit the production line to end up in Jaguar’s line-up, the British automaker also presented three other models in the shape of the facelifted XF, XK and the XKR-S, the most powerful Jag yet.
