Jaguar went to all that trouble to develop the road-legal C-X75 hybrid hypercar, made all of its systems interconnect seamlessly and successfully, but then realized there was no business case for the 250 units they wanted to make and just stuck to producing five prototypes and then allowing journalists to have a go and say how lovely it would all have been…
Below we have another of these hands-on experiences, in video form, courtesy of XCAR. We are reminded once more that it looks pretty cool from any angle and that it already has a functional interior but uses a standard Jaguar steering wheel.
Its 1.6-liter engine makes an unreal power figure for something that’s also road legal – 502 hp plus the an extra combined 400 hp from the electric motors; performance is very brisk, as we’ve already seen.
Scroll down, click play and to imagine the four-way battle between it and the three other hybrid hypercars, the ones that did make it into production, like the Porsche 918 Spyder.
