At the IAA Frankfurt Motor Show 2015, the burnt orange Jaguar C-X75 used in upcoming James Bond film Spectre was put up on display and certainly turned some heads. While the car itself is a few years old, this is the first time it’s been seen painted in such a colour so we just had to see it in person.
While the C-X75 was ruled out for production not long after it debuted in concept guise, the British marque did create five prototypes as individual test beds for new technologies. When we had the chance of driving the car in 2013, it was fitted with a 1.6-litre four-cylinder turbocharged and supercharged petrol engine revving to an extreme 10,300 rpm. All told, the engine delivers 500 hp.’
The internal combustion engine is then joined by two 650-volt batteries and two electric motors which combine to produce 390 hp at their peak. With almost 900 hp beneath the skin, the Jaguar C-X75 is just as powerful and fast as the hybrid hypercar trio of the Porsche 918 Spyder, Ferrari LaFerrari and McLaren P1 and should make for quite a movie car!
