Jaguar’s C-X16-concept makes an appearance at the LA Auto Show, but this time in pure white. In addition, the British brand unveiled the XKR-S Convertible model.
The C-X16 tops out at 186 miles per hour and accelerates from 0 to 62 mph in 4.4 seconds.
The battery charges through a brake energy regeneration system, and allows for an extra 94-hp and 173 lb-ft of torque; you can use it either as a 10-second “push to pass” mode, or the electric motor can propel the car silently for roughly 45 miles.
The pair of powertrains will combine to put out 468hp and 505lb-ft of torque.
Adrian Hallmark, Global Brand Director, Jaguar Cars, said: “Jaguar has always had a sporting heart, and the C-X16 is the perfect embodiment of our vision for a true 21st century Jaguar sports car. It’s fast, it’s beautiful, and it also highlights our commitment to the development of sustainable powertrain technologies.
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.
Pitched as the company’s most powerful cabriolet ever, the ragtop XKR-S is powered by the same 5-litre supercharged V8 as its coupe sister, meaning 542bhp and 501lb ft of torque. [more about XKR-S Convertible]
