2010 Paris Motor Show Overview: Jaguar C-X75

Another exciting car that is turning heads and making headlines at the 2010 Paris Motor Show is the Jaguar C-X75.

Celebrating Jaguar’s 75th anniversary, the C-X75 is a supercar concept powered by four electric motors, one at each wheel, delivering a staggering total of 780 horsepower and a theoretical top speed of 205 mph.

While individual motors at each wheel is not a completely new concept in electric vehicles, the fact they are charged by two microturbine engines (think of them as small versions of the jet engines you see on commercial airliners) is rather unique.

Microturbines offer advantages over internal combustion engines because of their simplicity (much few moving parts), significantly higher power-to-weight ratio and reduced emissions.

And now for the best news of all: Jaguar is reportedly considering putting this fierce feline into production.

Stayed tuned on Wednesday for a look at the new Exagon Motors Furtive eGT
