Top Gear drives the Jaguar C-X75
Before Jaguar put its 220mph, hybrid C-X75 hypercar on ice, TG got a drive…

Jaguar and Williams started the project with the following four simple but wildly contradictory goals. The looks of that Paris concept. The performance of a Veyron - 0-62mph in 3.0secs, 0-100mph in six. The pure-electric range of an Ampera/Volt - 40 miles. The official-cycle CO2 of a Prius - 89g/km. Other than that, because they realised jet turbines were, for the moment but not indefinitely, out of the question, they had complete engineering freedom. Beyond the steering wheel, that entertainment screen and the aircon controls, there's hardly anything bigger than the nuts and bolts that's lifted from any other Jaguar. Any other vehicle with numberplates, for that matter.
