Jaguar has just released details on its captivating C-X16 concept, the famed British marque’s vision for a 21st century sports car.

The C-X16 aims to embody the established Jaguar strengths of sensual design, animal-like agility and inspirational performance, combined with hybrid engine technology.

The car is powered by a prototype supercharged all-alloy V6 producing 375 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque, supplemented by an electric motor producing up to 94 hp, available to the driver at the push of a steering-wheel boost button.

That adds up to a total of 469 hp, good for a 0–62 mph time of just 4.4 seconds and a top speed of 186 mph.

Pair that with the kind of rakish yet pedigreed looks one usually associates with the likes of Aston Martin and we’d say Jaguar is going to do some serious business here….
