Jaguar C-X75 Supercar to Feature in New James Bond Flick
We recently wrote about the cars which will be a significant part of the new James Bond film Spectre. In the new, 24th flick, the world’s most popular spy will sit behind the wheel of the Aston Martin DB10 which was especially developed for the movie. He’ll also drive a Fiat 500 on the streets of Rome. But, what about the bad guys? According to the Autocar report, the antagonist will have an impressive vehicle – the Jaguar C-X75. This astonishing vehicle was developed as a supercar concept. Unfortunately, the automaker decided to cancel it due to the economic crisis. But still, the designers’ effort will partially pay off when the supercar appears on cinema screens. Since the Jaguar C-X75 was envisaged as a powerful hybrid motivated by four electric motors and two combustion turbines, it won’t have this setup in the movie.
Naturally, the two-seater that will appear in the movie won’t have the same performance as the real Jaguar C-X75 hybrid which could reach 205 mph and sprint from a standstill to 62 mph in 3.4 seconds. The hybrid’s overall power output is stunning 780 horsepower. The powertrain might be unconventional, but it delivers 1,180 lb-ft of torque. Its all-electric driving range is 68 miles while its overall range is 559 miles. This is really a supercar and it should be kept safe.
Therefore, for the purpose shooting the Spectre movie, the Jaguar C-X75 will offer its pretty looks, but under the hood, the automaker will hide a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine. Speaking of the V8 engine after the hybrid powertrain’s specs seems a bit out of place, but this engine won’t feel like a foreign body inside the C-X75. Unfortunately, we don’t know at the moment how much power it can generate, but there’s no doubt it will be worthy of the famous Jaguar C-X75 name.
