    Jaguar Electric

    Jaguar marked its 75th anniversary with this range-extended electric sports car designed to hit speeds of up to 205 miles per hour.

    The car has four electric motors -- one at each wheel -- that produce up to 195 horsepower each. Total power output is 778 horsepower.

    Unlike the Chevrolet Volt, this car doesn't use an ordinary piston engine to produce on-board electricity for long-range driving. Instead, it uses a jet-like turbine engine. Total range, including 68 miles on pure plug-in power, is supposed to be about 560 miles, Jaguar claims.

    Those figures are likely to remain purely theoretical since Jaguar has no plans to actually produce this car.

    I still like the looks of this little electric, but it appears as though they have gone thru some ups and downs

    Tender 3 looks out of place being white. Those old Corvairs look great in black.

    Looks like it is in very good condition. Enjoy.

    There is yet another great car we don't have over here.

    At least we will soon be getting the Fiat 500.

    I think you will soon have Alfa Romeo too, but not the Brera which is not produced for next year. The Fiat 500 are nice cars, our sales force have two of them!

    I don't think we are getting the Abarth version though. Too bad. At least we are getting something.

    I am going to have to look up whether or not we are getting Alfa back over here. There have been rumors of it for the last 10 years or so. Maybe longer.

    Still not sure how he imported it into Canada, but my neighbor has a Alfa 156GTA. Its an o.k looking car, very good performance. Not as good as my S430 Mercedes, but better than a BMW. Best sounding engine from a production (besides exotic like Ferrari's or Lamborghini) car I've ever herd!!!!!!! Rumor that Fiat is going to build Alfa's in Canada and import them in the USA.

    The HMY Britannia carried a real Rolls Royce Phantom V in its specially designed vehicle tender garage.

    Nice job Orion!

    As a Superyacht Tender Car, I think the upcoming VW Bulli will be popular...
