Jaguar has officially confirmed it will take the C-X75 to production - a model it debuted as a concept at the Paris motor show last year.

The C-X75 is a hybrid supercar that produces less than 99g/km of CO2 emissions but that can rival the best of the supercars with a top speed of over 200 mph (322 km/h).

The C-X75 will be an all-wheel drive with a "downsized, highly-boosted petrol engine" coupled with two powerful electric motors," says Jaguar, although the automaker doesn't offer more details than that.

The concept used four 195-horsepower (145-kW) electric motors with two small turbine engines to create electrical current. The production C-X75 will be opting for the more conventional setup.

But Jaguar is promising a 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) sprint time of under 3 seconds - so power on tap will likely be aplenty. And the car will still have an electric-only range of more than 50 km (31 miles).

Its lightweight, all carbon-fiber chassis will be developed with partner Williams F1, who will be providing their vast expertise on carbon engineering, aerodynamics and hybrid technologies.

Jaguar will build only 250 units of the C-X75 which will cost between £700,000 - £900,000 each (€781,000 to €1,000,000) depending on markets.
