The Jaguar C-X75 battery supercar makes its debut.

We’ve had a chance to get up close and personal with the new Jaguar C-X75, the battery-powered supercar making its surprise debut at the 2010 Paris Motor Show.  Here are some more photos and details.

As we earlier reported, the British maker claims the C-X75 will hit 205 mph. That’s a significant number for any automobile, and all the more so when you consider it has a surprising amount in common with the new Chevrolet Volt extended-range hybrid.

First, a few basics, like the fact that the C-X75′s four separate wheel motors produce a combined 770 horsepower and a blistering 1,180 lb-ft of torque, Jaguar claims the striking 2-seater will not only be capable of topping 200 mph, but launching from 0 to 100 kmh (0 to 62.5 mph) in just 3.4 seconds.
