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
