environmentally friendly jaguar

This is the Jaguar CX75. It combines electric motors and microturbines. Microturbines are a technology that WAS used in some cars in the 1950s, but ultimately abandoned because American consumers rejected the near-silent turbine tech because they didn't sound like the roaring V8s they were accustomed to.

At any rate this car, when finished, will be very quick - 0-60 in 3.4s with a top speed of 205 mph. It won't be cheap either - estimates come in at $300,000USD.

  1. $300,000? I'll have to start saving. I might have it sometime in the next...oh, I dunno...15 years or so.

  2. It's not very friendly for my effing pocket..
