The Cars That Money Can’t Buy – Jaguar C-X75

Sat 14th Apr 2018

Sometimes your chequebook won’t stretch to purchasing your dream motor. But don’t worry too much, there are some cars that even the biggest bank balances can’t buy, the dream cars that will forever remain a dream. These are the concept cars that never get made.

Jaguar C-X75
With an electric motor for each of its four wheels and 778 horsepower, when this 2-seat hybrid electric was revealed at the 2010 Paris Motor Show, there was much excitement due to it being produced in partnership with Jaguar and Williams F1.

Were we about to see a rival to the McLaren supercar? It was announced by Jaguar in 2011 that they were planning a limited production run of the C-X75, between 2013 and 2015, with a petrol engine and electric motors replacing the micro gas turbines of the original concept car.

With a price tag in the region of £700,000 muted, this was certainly going to be real competitor to the McLaren, in more ways than one. However, with a range expected to be a measly 31 miles, the much vaunted Jaguar-Williams supercar was mothballed, with the company announcing in December 2012 that the project was cancelled due to the ongoing global economic crisis.

Though five developmental prototypes were produced, to the original specifications, in 2013, the nearest we have got to seeing the C-X75 in action was in the James Bond movie, Spectre, which featured the Jaguar supercar. Seven cars were supplied to the film makers for the 2015 film.
