Jaguar C-X16 (2012)

CARBARN | Jaguar C-X16 (2012) | Ahead of its September 13 debut at the Frankfurt Motor, Jaguar has released images and details on its latest concept, the 2012 Jaguar C-X16. Up front, the coupe uses a vertical headlight design, rather than horizontal lamps on the XF, XJ and XK. Two air intakes before, a wide grille and pronounced front spoiler give the car a sportier look compared to the current range of Jaguar. The three large buttons on the center console high definition TV screens films that can be reconfigured depending on what you control.

Powering the coupe is a 375-horsepower 3.0-liter twin-scroll V-6 produces 332 lb.-ft. of torque. When the "Push to Pass" is pressed on the steering wheel, the electric motor can kick in, providing extra power from 50 mph to 75 mph in 2.1 seconds. Overall, the 94-hp electric motor and V-6 can accelerate the C-X16 from zero to 62 mph in 4.4 seconds with a top speed of 186 mph. At 175 inches long and 3.527 pounds, the C-X16 is noticeably shorter and lighter than the Jaguar XK 2012. The XK is technically possible to accommodate four people, although the rear legs is almost zero.

Jaguar is to broaden its range. Tata Motors chairman Ratan Tata (owner of Jaguar and Land Rover since 2008) said he plans to expand Jaguar range by adding a new entry level sedan, a roadster and a station wagon.
