Despite much of its automotive hype, the latest James Bond film, Spectre, turned out to be a bit of a dud. And it didn’t help that the Aston Martin DB10 and Jaguar C-X75 chase scene through the darkened streets of Rome turned out to be one of the most forgettable chase scenes ever shot. But at least the stunning Jag stunt car’s up for sale.
Sadly not planned for production, the C-X75 we saw in the film was undeniably awesome. With swoopy butterfly doors, a mid-engine layout and sleek looks, it was the spiritual successor to the famed XJ220. Auto Classics found one of the stunt cars listed for sale on Kaaimans International.
The listing says that it has just 500 miles on the clock and a 5.0-liter, naturally aspirated V8. There’s also a plaque that reads “one of four,” which is neat. It’s also not explained why that while the car in the movie is orange, this one is blue. Regardless, the price is on request.
Auto Classics points out that the cars used in the movie were built on space frame with the help of Williams Advanced Engineering, so the interior is perhaps a little more, uh, spartan than most would be used to.
And it really is a shame that the rest of Spectre is so damn-near unwatchable around that chase scene. Seeing the Aston and the Jag screaming around Rome sounds incredible on paper, but that excitement somehow just didn’t transfer to the screen. Maybe if the movie was better, then I’d be more jazzed about it.
