Jaguar is celebrating its 75th anniversary with the unveiling of a hybrid electric supercar concept called the C-X75 at the ongoing Paris Motor Show.

The C-X75 Concept embodies classic and contemporary Jaguar design cues that would make it a worthy successor to the XJ220.

That said, Jaguar at the moment has no plans to turn the concept into a production model. The concept boasts four electric motors located at each wheel and a combined power output of 778bhp.

Jaguar claims the C-X75 is capable of doing 0-100kph in just 3.4 seconds and hitting a top speed of 330kph. The car also has a range of up to 900km.

The C-X75 gets its electric power from a battery pack but rather than a conventional petrol-powered combustions engine, also uses two micro-gas turbines that can either charge the batteries or supply additional power to the electric motors for supercar performance.
