Jaguar has released a new video with the C-X75 hybrid supercar which unfortunately never made it as a production model.

Revealed in September 2010 at the Paris Motor Show, the Jaguar C-X75 never reached production phase even though at one point there were some rumors about a market release. It's being described as a "state-of-the-art hybrid supercar with the efficiency of a low-emissions city car" as it can reach a top speed of 220 mph (354 km/h) and has CO2 emissions of less than 89 g/km. 0-100 mph (0-161 km/h) takes less than 6 seconds thanks to a seven-speed automated manual gearbox switching gears in less than 200 milliseconds.

At its heart is an F1-inspired 1.6-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged and supercharged engine delivering 502 bhp (374 kW) at 10,000 rpm. It works together with two electric motors which together provide an additional 390 bhp (290 kW) for an impressive combined output of more than 850 bhp (634 kW) and 1,000 Nm (737 lb-ft) of torque.

It can run solely on electric power and provide a zero-emission maximum range of 37 miles (60 km). It creates more than 200 kg (440 lbs) of downforce at 200 mph (322 km/h) thanks to the deployable aerofoil and underfloor aerodynamics.

More details can be found in the attached press release.
