The British based automaker Jaguar is planning to produce five prototypes of the C-X75, which will be used in order to evaluate the model’s performance.

After it was officially presented to the public at the 2012 Delhi Auto Expo in India earlier this year, the Jaguar C-X75 is entering our news once more, this time with a rumor which is saying that the carmaker will produce five units of the model, which will be used to evaluate its performance. The car manufacturer may keep this subject into the shadows for the moment but according to the guys at Motor Trend, the company will develop five units of the prototype.

Our source is also saying that the final production version of the Jaguar C-X75 will get a 1.6 liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine which, along with the two electric motors, will develop more than 500 horsepower (507 PS / 373 kW). The powerplant will be mated to an automated manual transmission and it will use the Williams F1 KERS (Kinetic Energy Recovery System). The production version of the C-X75 will be able to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in less than 3 seconds and travel on electricity alone for 60 km (37 miles). The C-X75 is expected to be priced between 700,000 and 900,000 GBP (1.1-1.4m USD / 878,555-1.1m EUR).
