C-X75: A Glimpse at Jaguar's Future


The most sophisticated car Jaguar will never make, the C-X75 represents the future of the marque.

Ferrari will build its LaFerrari. McLaren and Porsche will do likewise with the P1 and 918 Spyder. But Jaguar’s hypercar will never be sold. The C-X75 is to be resigned to the history books following the British carmaker’s decision that launching a million-pound supercar in a time of austerity would not be appropriate. The state-of-the-art technology at the heart of the concept will not go to waste, however. In fact, upon releasing these new images of the prototype Jaguar claims the supercar “leads the way for the next generation of our sporting bloodline.”

That’s more likely a reference to the technology than the styling, itself inspired by the 1965 XJ13 – another car Jaguar never built. Its plug-in hybrid powertrain pairs a 500-hp twin-charged 1.6-liter four-pot with two electric motors for a combined output of 850 hp and phenomenal performance. 0-60 mph comes in at under three seconds, 0-100 mph in under six, and top speed at around 220 mph. There's been talk of an extreme F-Type utilizing the C-X75's powerplant, and we sincerely hope this comes to fruition.
