This Jaguar C-X75 does not contain electric motors. Nor does it have a carbon monocoque. It doesn’t have micro jets. Not even a super-turbo 1.6-litre engine that can rev to 10,200rpm. It is, in short, not a Jaguar C-X75. Your eyes deceive you.
That’s how it’s meant to be, of course. Because this car is the double of the Jaguar C-X75. The stunt double.
Just in case the blanket global coverage has passed you by, a recap is called for. James Bond drives an Aston Martin in the new film, SPECTRE. A DB10 purpose-designed for the film. This Jaguar? That’s the baddie car, driven by a chap called Mr Hinx. The two have a chase through Rome.
