Twin-charge 1.6-liter engine could eventually see the light of day

Jaguar recently announced plans to cancel the C-X75, but it appears that some of the car's technology will live on in upcoming models.

Auto Express is reporting the supercar's death will pave the way for specially designed alloy wheels that are stronger and 40 percent lighter than conventional alloys.

We can also expect the C-X75's twin-charged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine - that produces more than 500 bhp (373 kW) - to eventually see the light of day in an upcoming sports car. Nothing is official, but previous reports have indicated it could be used in the F-Type GT3.

Engineers also gained knowledge about carbon fiber construction and efficient aerodynamics, so we wouldn't be surprised if those advancements were taken into consideration on future models as well.

Best looking Jag since the iconic E-Type! Death knell of yet another Jaguar Concept masterpiece. At least new Leaping Cats look seriously cool nowadays and the underpinnings of the C-X75 in future models should be great news.

Funny when automakers say they are going to do this, and do that, and all those revolutionariy stuff that is going to make millions, and then chiken out in the end... Screw you, false expectation makers, you just want some space in the news to show off

They would have if instead of all the outlandish turbine serial hybrid and then tiny ultra-hi-revving engine with hybrid assist bull*#?", they had just made a lightweight all aluminium car (no carbon - keep price and repair costs low - as Ferrari does it) powered by a more powerful version of their supercharged 5 liter V8.

Then, like always, Jag would be saddled with a beautiful also-ran.

Oliveira, you probably like Asian manufacturers like Japs, Koreans, and Chinese. they dont waste your time with futuristic out of this world concepts, and gadgets that seem too go to be true -- they wait for the Europeans to waste their research money, create market share, and try something new in the real life with a chance of loosing it all. And once they succeed, here comes the Asian bragade - everything from X6s bodystyle, A7s sportbacks, BMW's LED lights.
