Default A gorgeous Hybrid idea from Jaguar

I helped make this baby, so I am justifiably proud that it is now wowing the peeps at the Paris motor show!

Please notice it will have two jet engines that drive generators that power the four wheel motors. Also everything that is shiny is either billet aluminium, or hand beaten sheet aluminium!!!!

The turbines, made by the UK company "Bladon Jets" are special in that they are spark eroded from solid so you do not need a complex "root mounting" for each blade!


Now all we need is plenty of people to tell Jaguar that they want one and it will probably happen.

First some pictures (you may need to click "gallery")

And three videos (they follow each other)

I don't think that I can afford one of those. It is impressive. Good Luck.

Where were the still photos taken. The background of those shots look like a place near me the US.

That seems like a sexy *** Jaguar but that seems a little over priced to be honest. If you become rich though send one over to me.

Nice Work Roger!

Definately gives some clues on the future models design features

Im working on the XJ Hybrid still, Whitley this time though. These Inverters are a pain to package though!

I dont see your Insight at Gaydon that often when Im there?

Cheers

Even before you posted this I was thinking that was a great looking car! I love it! I just can't afford it. Maybe after a few tweeks have been made and a few generations are sold then I will be able to slide into one!
