Jaguar CX-16 Concept

Exciting news are coming from Jaguar right before Frankfurt Auto Show. They will be revealing the new CX-16 Concept, a two seater that will compete in the smaller Porsche Cayman class, meaning it will be more affordable than the 911 class.

It will come with a 3.0 liter, 375 horsepower V6 engine. Supplementing this is an electric motor producing up to 94HP, available to the driver at the push of a steering-wheel boost button. Allied to an eight-speed gearbox and mounted in a lightweight aluminum chassis this allows the C-X16 to sprint to 62 mph (100 kmh) in 4.4 seconds. The interior showcases interesting future technologies such as multimodal rotary controls that incorporate miniature OLED screens, which reconfigure to reflect the different functions that can be performed via the controls, all of which are designed for maximum compatibility between sports car needs and everyday usability.
