The Jaguar C-X16 prototype. Fantastic looking car. And it’s going into production soon.

“Up front there’s a 3.0-litre supercharged V6 engine producing 380bhp and 332lb ft of torque. But that’s not all. Integrated into the eight-speed gearbox is a motor generator mounted behind the seats that draws power from a battery pack (itself charged through brake energy regeneration, like KERS on an F1 car) that provides 95bhp and 173lb ft of boost via a steering-wheel-mounted button. A boost button, if you will. Boost buttons are good.”
