While we continue to wait for that rumored announcement, Jaguar is using the très chic Paris auto show to unveil an eleventy-billion-dollar, two-seat, twin-turbine, quad-electric-motor-powered 205-mph slingshot that should be in production in about, oh, never. Cue the Star Wars theme. Did we mention that there was British government agency money involved in this project? The C-X75 is at heart a research project designed to fuse aerospace and automotive technologies. The car was developed over a nine-month span and paid for by Jag, while the powertrain springs from a joint project with the British government--sponsored Technology Strategy Board. On the most basic level, the car's complex powertrain is a range-extending hybrid that operates roughly like the Chevrolet Volt's. In the Jag, a 19-kWh, 330-pound cache of lithium-ion batteries provides up to 68 miles of pure-electric AWD propulsion from four 195-hp electric motors. Mounted inboard, each drives a single wheel through a 3:1 gear reduction, and together create a claimed 1180 lb-ft of torque. (Four electric motors? Maybe Jaguar should have called it the XJ440.)

The turbines, made by the English company Bladon Jets and housed in a box behind the two seats with inlet air channeled through ducts around the occupant's heads, extend the range to 560 miles. Jag is claiming 0-to-62-mph times of 3.4 seconds for the 3000-pound C-X75, about as quick as a Ferrari 458 Italia, with the quarter-mile accomplished in 10.3 seconds at 156 mph. Under hard acceleration, its runs solely on electricity to 60 mph, then one turbine kicks in to assist up to 120 mph. Beyond that, both turbines assist the C-X75 to its top speed. All of this is theoretical, since nobody has driven this machine at a speed faster than a crawl. The brakes are from the supercharged XFR sedan, though, so the 5-to-0-mph stops are surely furious. Either way, it's a stunning, road-sucking, mid-engined machine that looks like a windblown sliver of mercury, yet another attractive opus from the Jaguar design shop run by Ian Callum. Befitting Jaguar, the chassis is an aluminum spaceframe. The outer panels are fiberglass. A moveable airfoil on the underbody Venturi tunnel directs airflow according to the car's speed, while the turbines' hot exhaust gasses flow through vectored nozzles to increase downforce. Also, the grille and brake-cooling ducts seal themselves when not needed. Inside is a nearly all-glass cockpit consisting of high-res LCD touch screens for gauges and information displays and electroluminescent lighting.
