Jaguar C-X16 Concept

Jags have been old man cars for most of my adult life. The C-X16 concept, if it makes it to product, will smash that perception, blow up the smashed remains, and then light whatever’s left on fire. This car is absolutely, unequivocally gorgeous. It looks more Aston Martin than Jag, and that’s most definitely a good thing.

It’s not all about looks, though. Jaguar knows better than that these days. The C-X16 packs a supercharged 3.0 liter V6 that’s good for 376 horses and 332 lb-ft of torque. Not bad. But that’s not all, either.

When you need a bit more juice, you simply press the “Push to Pass” button, and a 94 HP / 173 lb-ft electric motor will spring to life, pinning you against your seat as you blow by all the regular cars on the road.

Gorgeous good looks. 0-62 MPH in 4.4 seconds. A hybrid go-fast button. Yes, please. But Jaguar? Give it a good name. This car deserves it.
