Details: Williams F1 designed Jaguar C-X75 plug-in hybrid Supercar

Jaguar announced in May 2011 they had joined forces with Formula One racing group Williams to produce a British-made commercial model of their hybrid C-X75 Supercar.

Recently Car and Driver got more detail on the C-X75 development to-date and report on significant changes from the Concept that was revealed at the 2010 Paris auto show.

Compared with the Porsche 918 and the hybridized Ferrari F70/Enzo replacement, The Jaguar takes a smaller-engined, subtly different approach to being a “supercar with an environmental edge.” The C-X75 will go on sale in early 2014 for an estimated $1.4 million, with a maximum of 200 cars to be produced.
