We know the canceled Jaguar C-X75 was intended to be a hybrid-electric, 2-seat sports car with 778 hp courtesy o YASA electric motors, each of which drives one of the four wheels. Unlike other hybrid-electric vehicles, the batteries driving these motors are recharged using two diesel-fed micro gas turbines instead of a conventional four-stroke engine. Unfortunately, the project was scrapped entirely in 2012 due to the economic crisis at that time. Automotive designer Aitor Amigo López shows us what a modern version could look like in the form of the all-electric Jaguar ID-Type. Read more for two videos, additional pictures and information.
The ID-Type draws some inspiration from the Aston Martin Valkyrie, as the carbon fiber chassis appears to be suspended between the four wheels due to its large air tunnels between the front wheels, bodywork and rear wheels. Out back, it comes equipped with a large diffuser, thin LED taillights, and exposed wheels for maximum downforce.
