The Jaguar C-X75: 850hp and Co2 Emissions of a Prius

Jaguar C-X75 Front“Our challenge was monumental: we needed to achieve the performance of a Veyron; the range of a Volt; and the CO2 of a Prius,” said Jaguar C-X75 manager Rob Atkin. After the introduction of LaFerrari by Ferrari and the P1 by Mclaren, it is now Jaguar’s turn to reveal their secret weapon. They called it the C-X75, a concept they have been cooking for around 2 years now, celebrating the 75th anniversary of Jaguar. The result? The most technological advanced production car in the world. This new master piece is a hybrid that has around 850 hp and 750lb-ft of torque, the result of a combination between a Turbocharged and Supercharged 1.6 liter 4 cylinder engine delivering 500hp revving up to 10,300 RPM (YES you read it right) and 2 electric motors generating around 350hp. The petrol engine alone is delivering 313hp per liter, which is 60% more than any road car available in the market today. This massive amount of power will be delivered by all four wheels to the road through a 7 speed manual gear box. The Co2 emission of this beast are comparable to the ones o a Prius, the hybrid that Toyota has been producing for the past couple of years.

Jaguar C-X75 BackEven though it is a production car, Jaguar announced that it not for sale for the time being so don’t expect to see any of these on your local roads soon. Its design is just brilliant, the grey, matte finish looks amazing. The overall look of the car is crazy but not too crazy, the rear diffuser is just massive and the front end looks “deja vu” it has a Ford-ish aspect to it don’t you think? With this car revealed, we should be expecting mind blowing techs in the next generation Jaguar production models. Looking forward!

B.J. Baldwin in the MonsterEnergy 850hp Trophy Truck.

M3 girl“Most companies spend their money on ad agencies, TV commercials, radio spots, and billboards to tell you how good their products are. Instead, we support the scene, our bands, our athletes and our fans!” – Monster. Following the series of Ken Block’s mind blowing videos, (which you can access by clicking here) Monster presents their new mascot, B.J. Baldwin, trophy truck pilot and stuntman. Baldwin takes the 850-horsepower, 34-inches suspension, 150 mph top speed Monster Energy Trophy Truck for a spin, jumps over a Nissan GT-R, picks up a hot chick, and ruins the photoshoot of a BMW M3 by covering it with sand. He’s destination, Aria hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada for a date. Add to that a couple of drifts, and slow-motion shots and you got yourself the perfect recipe for a million views youtube video. Monster Energy, I salute you for sponsoring those amazing, crazy, professional athletes. Special thanks to Wael Makarem for sharing the video with TheAdsGarage.

Mercedes Commercial: Guinness World Record.

SLS golfI mentioned the SLS AMG in my previous post “Super Service” that featured Roger Federer. For this commercial, Mercedes has attempted to win the Guinness World Record for the ‘Furthest Golf Shot Caught in a Moving Car.’ Jake Shepherd (professional UK golf player) launched the golf ball from the tee at a speed of 286.46 kmh, and David Coulthard (professional British Formula one driver) made sure it landed in the SLS AMG, 275 metres down the runway. Mercedes were the ones to set the record, there were none before. With this trend of creating a convertible edition of every super car, I think the record is gonna be broken very soon.
