Jaguar C-X16 – this is the new must have sports car

I know I was talking about my love to Porsche but there is going to be a new car on the market which is seriously going to be able to compete with the Porsche Boxter or the BMW Z4.

Jaguar is bringing this super sportive two seat car on the market 2013. The named is supposed to be Jaguar XE.

A tribute to the legendary Jaguar E-Type of the 1960s. And like this it will have a six-cylinder engine under the long hood, but in a V shape. With the three-liter supercharged engine with 380 hp on it. In the study, it is assisted by a hybrid module: a 95 bhp electric motor engages when necessary. This way the car goes up in 4.4 seconds from zero to 100.

This Jaguar is a technique similar to the KERS system in Formula 1: the slow roll and recovered energy is fed into a buffer memory and can be accessed via a boost button on the steering wheel as an additional driving force for ten seconds. An all-electric operation should be using the large 1.6 kWh battery of the electric motor also possible, given the capacity that should be possible but only for short distances.
