What It's Like To Drive Jaguar's Stillborn $1.1 Million C-X75 Supercar

The Jaguar C-X75 was supposed to be the next great British supercar. The plug-in hybrid was going to have massive power from a combination of electric motors and a twin charged four cylinder engine. But Jag will never build it. This is what it would have been like.

The original C-X75 was a turbine powered concept car with stunning looks that hearkened back to the XJ13, another Jaguar supercar from the '60s that never ended up reaching production.


For the production car, the looks remained, but the turbines were binned in favor of a ridiculous four cylinder engine. The Williams F1 team worked on the hybrid system to optimize it. The price was announced at $1.1 million.


And that's what killed the C-X75 for the public.

Jag has five of the cars developed. They'll keep three of them and sell two. And I bet those two sell for more than $1.1 million. Autocar got to drive them. Lucky gits.
