With a name fit for a “Star Wars” droid, the Jaguar C-X75 boasts some out-of-this-world looks and seriously sexy specs. Jaguar engineers combined a 1.6-liter turbo supercharged four-cylinder engine (that delivers 502 horsepower) with two electric motors (390 horsepower) for a total output that exceeds 850 horsepower.

When the car’s at a complete standstill, racers cranking the C-X75′s seven-speed manual transmission can achieve 0-100 mph in less than six seconds. If that’s not fast enough for you, the theoretical top speed of 220 mph should set you straight, or at least put you in the next county quite quickly. The C-X75′s carbon composite chassis undoubtedly assists in creating a very light footprint.
