James Bond’s latest adventure, Spectre, features one of the most iconic car scenes filmed in decades. And the Jaguar C-X75, the supercar that chases Britain’s top secret agent through the streets of Rome, is a star in its own right. Driven by Bond’s latest nemesis, Hinx (Dave Bautista), this ride is custom-designed to kick ass. Learn more on the following pages.
First introduced as a concept in 2010, the C-X75 is powered by a 1.6-litre turbocharged and supercharged four-cylinder engine and two electric motors.
The Jaguar supercar, developed in partnership with Williams Advanced Engineering, is capable of a combined output of 850 horsepower.
The C-X75 has a potential top speed of 220 miles per hour and can go from a complete standstill to 100mph in less than six seconds.
In addition to also being capable of producing less than 89 grams of CO2 per kilometer, the C-X75 can run with zero emissions for up to 60 kilometers.
To handle the grueling chase scene in Spectre, the C-X75 underwent a number of modifications, including reinforcing the frame and lengthening the car’s suspension.
