Top Gear drives the Jaguar C-X75

Jaguar could have quietly shoved the prototypes into a locked shed right then and walked away in hangdog embarrassment. But it didn't. There's so much technology in the C-X75 that its development continues virtually unabated, by a tight-knit team from Jaguar itself and Williams Grand Prix's Advanced Engineering consultancy division. Honestly, there's stuff in this car - electric motors, battery tech, electronics, composite construction, the astoundingly powerful and revvy combustion engine and more - that's not only more radical than what Porsche is using for the 918, but is, crucially, entirely relevant to Jaguar and Land Rover's future mass-production cars.
