Jaguar C-X75 technology to live on in future models - report

Jaguar recently announced plans to cancel the C-X75, but it appears that some of the car's technology will live on in upcoming models.

Auto Express is reporting the supercar's death will pave the way for specially designed alloy wheels that are stronger and 40 percent lighter than conventional alloys.

We can also expect the C-X75's twin-charged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine - that produces more than 500 bhp (373 kW) - to eventually see the light of day in an upcoming sports car. Nothing is official, but previous reports have indicated it could be used in the F-Type GT3.

Engineers also gained knowledge about carbon fiber construction and efficient aerodynamics, so we wouldn't be surprised if those advancements were taken into consideration on future models as well.
