THIS is Jaguar's super-green supercar - a 205mph rocket powered by electricity and gas turbines.
 
Revolution ... C-X75 has electric motors on each wheel

The sensational "concept" motor, which could cost around £300,000 if it goes into production, will be unveiled today at the International Motor Show in Paris.

The C-X75 has electric motors on each wheel and two micro-jet gas turbines.

That means it produces no emissions when on leccy power and less than a supermini when the gas turbines are used.

It has a range of over 60 miles on electricity and 560 miles on turbine.

The sleek car, which can hit 62mph in 3.4secs, has a jet-style interior using hi-tech materials.

The firm's chief designer Ian Callum said: "This is not just a show car, it is a catalyst for Jaguar's future - a fast-track insight into what we want to do."

Yeah, this is one sexy car. Expect to see it driven around xiamen by someone's wife in the near future.

This car looks amazing. I shudder to think how much it sells for.
