Frankfurt Motor Show: Jaguar C-X16

The Frankfurt Motor Show doesn’t start for another 6 days, but there is already been lots to talk about. A BRAND NEW luxury car the Eterniti Hemera, a pretty amazing concept vehicle from Smart (The Forvision) and a Bentley SUV are all set to make their debuts from under white sheets next week in Germany.

These shows are where the manufacturers get a chance to show off their new concepts and ideas for the future. Sometimes with minor changes, like in the case of the Peugeot RCZ they will actually make it into full production.

Usually it’s a chance for the designers to design the car THEY want to drive without the constraints of price and practicality and elements from the cars appear on their newer models.

Here is some pictures of Jaguars C-X16 , a hybrid that combines a supercharged 3 litre V6 (375hp) engine with an electric motor which can boost power by 94hp from pressing a button on the the steering wheel.

It also means you can drive the car at speeds of up to 50mph on electric power alone. I don’t know about you but I am not too sure about the prospect of being overtaken by a milk float while in a car like this.
