Jaguar has released
details of the C-X16 concept ahead of its world debut at the 2011
Frankfurt Motor Show.
Looking firmly to the future, the C-X16 marks a new chapter for
Jaguar. The two-seater concept has inspired new advances in design,
in engineering and in vehicle technology to create the most compact
and responsive Jaguar in a generation. A hybrid, the C-X16 combines
searing performance with beautifully realised styling.
Adrian Hallmark, Global Brand Director, Jaguar Cars:"The C-X16
embodies the established Jaguar strengths of sensual design,
animal-like agility and inspirational performance and combines these
with attributes that set us on a course to create sustainable sports
cars of the future."
Ian Callum, Director of Design, Jaguar Cars:"Jaguars have always
been dramatically different. With the C-X16 we have moved the
current award-winning design language on to the next generation,
creating a car that is the very essence of future Jaguar
Under the muscular clamshell bonnet is a next-generation
supercharged V6 petrol engine producing 380 PS (280kW) and 332 lb ft
(450 Nm) of torque. Already boasting a high specific power output of
126 PS-per-litre, the performance of the C-X16 is further
supplemented by a Formula 1-inspired hybrid boost system with a
steering-wheel mounted button for on-demand acceleration.
Integrated into the eight-speed gearbox is a motor generator which
draws power from a 1.6kWh battery pack mounted behind the seats for
ideal 50:50 weight distribution. Charged through a brake energy
regeneration system, the batteries allow the motor to provide an
additional 95 PS (70 kW) and173 lb ft (235 Nm).
Mounted in an aluminium chassis structure, the result is 0-62 mph
acceleration in 4.4 seconds, a top speed of 186 mph and acceleration
from 50-75 mph of 2.1 seconds. The C-X16 is also able to travel at
speeds of up to 50 mph under electric power alone and has CO2
emissions of 165 g/km.
The C-X16 measures 4,445 mm in length, 2,048 mm in width and 1,297
mm in height and has a wheelbase measuring 2,622 mm. In terms of
overall length, the C-X16 is the smallest Jaguar created since 1954
and the XK120.
The C-X16 will be presented at the Jaguar Land Rover press
conference in Hall Five at the Frankfurt Motor Show on Tuesday
September 13 at 09:15 CET.
