“The business wants to put this car into volume production but it has to meet all its targets for positioning and price,” Joyce said in an interview with MotorTrend.

Projected price for the car is somewhere between $1.1 million to $1.4 million when converted into U.S. dollars and sales are scheduled to start in 2014. Jaguar hopes top built a total of 200 units.

Refresher: Power for the Jaguar C-X75 will come from a 1.6 liter engine that will rev to 10,000 rpm. The engine will use a turbocharger and supercharger to pump out around 500-hp. The system will also consist of two electric-motors on the front and rear axle helping push the C-X75 from 0 to 60 mph in 3 seconds with a top speed of over 200 mph.
