    I just hope it proves to be a better car than their last "limited edition supercar" - the compromised XJ220.

    That was ruled-out almost as quickly as it was ruled-in.

    But Tata bought shares in Bladon Jets. I assumed the reason was to provide them for this car. Looking at the available info on Bladon though, there's no clue as to how the turbines drive genarators. Just more hot air from the manufacturers?

    The Jaguar XJ13 was a prototype racing car developed by Jaguar to challenge at Le Mans in the mid-1960s. (Engine size was changed and limited to a max of 3 litres at Le Mans while this car was being built - this is 5 litres). It never raced, and only one was ever produced. The car has not been officially valued, but a £7 million bid for it was declined by the owners in 1996.

    £700,000 for the C-X75 doesn't sound to bad compared to this. :eek:
