    Starts off interesting... :)

    fitted with a 1.6-liter turbocharged inline-four capable of, apparently, 500 horsepower.

    Adds a touch of impressive engineering :ymapplause:

    twin-charging, or the employment of both a supercharger and turbocharger. They are able to boost power at varying RPMs, thus making for a wide powerband. Oh, and speaking of revs, the engine is said to redline at a towering 10,000 RPMs.

    Then some nifty figures :-B

    Jaguar engineers estimate that the eco-friendly performance machine will achieve a top speed of 200 miles per hour, and 0-60 time of below three seconds.

    and then... [-(

    constantly charges up the 600-volt battery pack

    and finally :((

    The price for all of this high-tech low-emissions gadgetry? £700,000 to £900,000

    But... look at it :x
