In the latest James Bond film, Spectre, Aston Martin and British spy fans may have met their match – the Jaguar C-X75.
Although Bond’s Aston is a symbol of good, and the Jag – driven by henchman Mr. Hinx – the carriage of evil, motoring fans will admire the beauty and engineering of the C-X75.
The car is a concept prototype from Jaguar, and “represents the pinnacle of Jaguar’s engineering and design expertise”, the company said.
“It is arguably the world’s fastest test-bed for the world’s most advanced technologies.”
The C-X75 has a combined power output of over of 630kW and 1000Nm of torque – driven by a combination of a 1.6-litre turbocharged and supercharged four-cylinder engine and electric motors.
“The C-X75 can sprint from 0-160km/h in less than six seconds, thanks to its advanced 7-speed automated manual transmission that allows gearshifts in under 200 milliseconds,” said Jaguar.
“The very first C-X75 prototype exceeded 320km/h in testing with ease, and the car has a theoretical maximum velocity of 350km/h.”
