It would be great if the C-X75 reach production.

I hope it will not flop like the XJ220 did...

The exterior of the C-X75 is Fantastic! It surely looks more beautiful and stunning than LaFerrari and P1, IMO. This prototype is just gorgeous with all its details that its predecessors were famous for.

However, I don't like the fact it's another hybrid hypercar.. mlehh... But I really cannot complain on numbers it performs. Because its 4-cylinder engine (yes, yes!, four-cylinder!) that produces.. 502 bhp at 10000 rpm! That's just brainless! And that sound, it sounds like a pro-race-car! Other power power comes from two electric motors to the each axle, so it's AWD. As total, combined 850 hp plus, 1000 Nm... Here you go, a plug-in hybrid, a relative to the Prius that defeats everything.

So performance: 220 mph top speed (just like XJ220 (the name is obvious) did, without any electrics); 0-62 - under 3 sec; 0-100 - under 6 sec. And for a car that weighs 1700 kg, that's very agile. This is a wildcat with a smart electric brain.

Of course, I wish to see this C-X75 with a twin-turbo V6, or even a big growling V12, without any hybrids, and be RWD... But I realize, the current prototype is just a technical prodigy.

Aaaah.. just such a shame this Jaguar is nothing more than a prototype... Be it hybrid, or not, I really wish C-X75 hit the production, and be a top competitor to the LaFerrari, P1 and 918... That's would be a glorious fourth of 2013...

I wonder why this car was not more succesfull.
It has a good track performance and a very good straight line speed.
It was till the McLaren F1 the fastest road legal car in the world.
The XJR-9s design was chosen.
...
But 284 instead of 350 units were built.

SHAME.

Technically, weight affects the top speed - the rolling resistance, friction in the bearings increases with the additional weight. But these increased resistance forces are neglectable compare to the aerodynamic force at high speed.

@Shaggy

You could fill a car up with 300Lb people in each seat, and the top speed would be the same if there was a 120Lbs person driving.

Weight nor torque effect the top speed, there are many variable that go with top speed, but weight isnt one of them, like ive said, it will effect you GETTING there, but not the actual top, weight doesnt work against a top speed, just how long it will take, Aerodynamics do, if a CTS-V weighed 3200Lbs, and had 700Lb Ft, it would still do its regular top speed.

Weight is very minor when it comes to top speed. The other factors are stopping the car from going any faster. It will take longer to reach the top speed, though

From an article I found...

"The reason is friction, of which there are three main sources: Aerodynamic drag, losses through the transmission, and tire friction. The loss from each of these sources increases geometrically with increased speed. Eventually, you reach a point where all the engine's power is being used to overcome these losses, so none is left over for acceleration."

Throw a couple of extra people in a CTS-V and the top speed would be the same.

Shaggy  4y

@ BR2': "Weight has nothing to do with top speed", I have to disagree, there are many variables that decide top speed: horsepower, torque, gear ratio, axle ratio, weight, and drag coefficient. Weight and drag work against the engine's power.

O, My bad mate, Hard to tell sometimes when you cant SEE how people are saying it.

@BR2
I was sarcastic..

I said CTS-V has the same aerodynamics, cause it looks like a fridge. :D


User avatar

BR2'  4y

@Mental

Where do you get as bad as a fridge? A Cadillac CTS-V has a Coefficient Drag of Cd.35...Which is better then the XJ220. And the ZL1 achieves 185Mph because Chevrolet opted for DownForce rather then top speed. Cd.36, not gearbox.


User avatar

Mental  4y

Ugh, seeing CTS-V I'd say it has the same aerodynamics as the fridge..

I'm not a spec in gearboxes, but looks all the deal is in them. XJ220's final drive ratio is 2.88, and I consider that's a good number, if the F1 does 3.01.

The reason why the Caddy is slow is probably in its gearbox - Tremec TR6060. I decided that, cause I compared it to the Camaro ZL1, which power output, aerodynamics (0.35) and final drive ratio (3.73) are pretty the same. And Camaro also doesn't achieve even 300 kph. Though I don't know.


User avatar

BR2'  4y

Weight has nothing to do with top speed, it will effect you getting there, but wont effect the end result, In the CTS-Vs case, 192Mph has been recorded, but i believe its do to the Cd.35, that or it may have long gearing, or me be safety limited i dunno the exact case.


User avatar

Shaggy  4y

@ BR2': hmmph, Must be the gear ratio, then. You're right about 450 horsepower being enough to get most cars to 190 MPH, a standard 2013 Corvette with the 6 speed manual transmission has 436 horsepower and will do 190 MPH, but the Cadillac CTS/V has 556 horsepower and will only do 190 MPH, but then again, it's a big, heavy sedan. Most cars with 540 horsepower made today won't do 200 MPH, they're either too heavy, not aerodynamic enough, or have too close of a gear ratio, close ratio transmissions are great for acceleration, but not so much for top end speed.


User avatar

BR2'  4y

Please, 450Bhp is enuff to get you to 190, ie GT3/C6/M3 GTS etc 540Bhp is well enuff to get you over 200Mph, the XJ220s Cd.36 isnt even what id call slippery, its the same as a Mustang..

So, its top speed is either a result og long 4th-5th gear, great engine, or underated engine.


User avatar

Shaggy  4y

Amazing car, 542 horsepower will only get a new car to about 190 MPH, and it takes about 700 horsepower to get a new supercar to 215 MPH, the Jaguar XJ220 has the aerodynamics of a fighter jet, and it's light, 3,234 LBS.

Tiff Needell!!!But I think the secret is not Tiff Needell, why is the xj 220 so fast? Here is the answer:

XJ220 beats XKR-S in any performance discipline. The only thing I doubt is the braking test, where XKR-S might win as it uses modern brakes.

But seeing this comparison, I feel sorry for the XKR-S, as it could be much a better performance machine. I know that's a GT, but for 20 years Jag could manage to create some really unbeatable performance supercar, a GT (I'd be glad seeing Jaggy's competitor to the F12b, a XKR-SS, LOL), or the successor to the XJ220 (XJ240 would be really hardcore 8D


User avatar

BR2'  4y

The XJ220 has nothing to do with the XKR-S, Nor is it associated with it as a competitor..Simply because 2 cars share similiar acceleration stats doesnt mean a thing.


User avatar

Shaggy  4y

@ Mental: Yeah, Jaguar does need to build a successor to the XJ 220, I think the XJ 220 is the greatest Jaguar of all time, but this time, it should have a 5.0 liter Supercharged V8 making about 750 horsepower, that would be rock.

...."But really no wonder why XJ220 has beaten the XKR-S. XK is just not its competition"

no no, false!

XKR-S
551 ps
0-50kph: 1,9
0-250kph: 20,5
0-300kph: 39,4
quater miles: 12,37

Nordschleife: 7:51

Reference: Autobild sportscars 6/2012

much better than Jaguar xj 220

theoretical:

Zonda C12 S
0 - 100 kph 3.7 s
0 - 100 mph 7.4 s
0 - 200 kph 11.2 s
0 - 150 mph 16.0 s

XJ220
0 - 100 kph 3.8 s
0 - 100 mph 7.3 s
0 - 200 kph 12.0 s
0 - 150 mph 17.4 s

from 100 mph Zonda wins

in practice:

the driver of jaguar is a better racer

@Jag
Yeah, nice videos. The first - 90-ties... all the cars were equally great :)... classic Viper, 993 Turbo, Lotus Esprit, AM V8 Vantage, Ferrari 512M, Ferrari F40 and at last Jag XJ220.. I love them all!

I actually wondered how Jaggy outperformed Zonda in the drag race. Zonda has a bit more power, much more torque and lighter and just uses more modern tech. Looks like Zonda's driver failed. Didn't you notice who was the driver. Meanwhile, XJ220's driver seemed for a while to me that he is Tiff Needell, maybe secret is in him? (at least I'm sure he was driving the XKR-S in the next video ;D)

But really no wonder why XJ220 has beaten the XKR-S. XK is just not its competition. Oh, Jag needs to create the modern successor of the XJ220... just needs.
