Jaguar has lifted the wraps off its C-X75 concept which comes driven with a combination of battery and gas turbine power. The concept vehicle is now being showcased at the 2010 Paris Motor Show, and is luring eyeballs for its unique eco-friendly power system.

Designed as a two-seater, the car comes with capabilities of accelerating from 0-62mph in just 3.4 seconds and has a top speed of 205mph. These attributes promise the Jaguar C-X75 to be the fastest-ever electric road car when it finally arrives on the tarmac.

Powered by a lithium-ion battery that runs four electric motors, the C-X75 boasts of motors providing 195bhp each, making it a total of 780bhp. Torque specs read 1180 lb ft. The battery power is capable of life on a six-hour charge from the mains and can run 68 miles on a single go. Besides, it also deploys two super efficient gas turbines derived from aircraft jet engines, which in turn gives it extra power so as to run an extra range of 560 miles.

When it arrives at dealerships, the Jaguar C-X75 is expected to cost around £200,000. Seen as a follow up model to the XJ220, the car maker hasn’t, however, announced its production plans as yet.
