    what happened to the turbine powered jag?

    They made 5 cars, which worked brilliantly, and then they canned the project. I don’t think they wanted to compete with the other Hybrid Hypercars such as LaFerrari, MaClaren P1, Porsche 918 etc…

    This is one of the five cars in-build at Williams F1.

    The Gas Turbines were only ever on the show car.

    JLR knew that the turbines couldn’t live with the vibration in a real road car and replaced them with a 1.6 litre supercharged and turbocharged in-line 4.

    The engine revved to 10,000 rpm and sounded like a big motorbike 8)
