It's one of four stunt cars built for the James Bond film.
To celebrate the company’s 75th anniversary back in 2010, Jaguar created the stunning C-X75 concept. Combining stunning looks with revolutionary hybrid tech featuring four electric motors and a pair of micro gas turbines, it was supposed to preview a future Jaguar halo car. Five prototypes were made, but the turbines were replaced with a 1.6-liter turbocharged and four-cylinder supercharged engines, both with hybrid power and an output of over 800 hp. Sadly, it never entered production due to the costs required to give it the green light.
To this day, Jaguar still hasn’t made a new halo supercar since the XJ220. Fortunately, the C-X75 got its chance to shine in the 2015 James Bond film Spectre. And now an opportunity has emerged to own one of the stunt cars built for the film. Four stunt cars unrelated to the original concept were built for the film with the help of Williams Advanced Engineering.
Each car was built around a tubular chassis with composite panels attached and featured suspension from a from a 911 GT3 rally car to help the car career around the streets of Rome in the film’s chase scene, in which the C-X75 is driven by the villain in pursuit of Bond in an Aston Martin DB10.
With the help of a hydraulic handbrake being installed, the cars were set up for drifting to look good in the action shots. Listed for sale by Kaaimans International, the C-X75 stunt car is powered by a 5.0-liter V8 and has around 500 miles on the clock. Price is available on request, but not only is this a chance to own a rare piece of movie history, but the closest you can currently get to a Jaguar supercar.
