Not quite cancelled, 5 extremely exclusive cars to be built

Don’t you hate when automakers flaunt engorged stats and titillating images of cars they know they’ll never let you have? It’s the gearhead’s equivalent of going to a strip club: all stimulation, no realization. Such is the case with Jaguar who are releasing new images of its aborted C-X75 Concept. Originally debuted in 2010 at the Paris Motor Show, the million dollar hypercar was engineered following the red hot hybrid architecture pairing a petrol engine with electric motors that creates a vehicle with unearthly numbers (see Porsche 918, Ferrari LaFerrari, Acura NSX, McLaren P1, etc). The Formula One-inspired C-X75 features a turbo- and supercharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine augmented with two electric motors, combining for an earthshaking 850 hp output with 738 lb-ft of torque… all with less emissions than a Toyota Prius. A truly stunning achievement. Its name derived from Jaguar’s 75th Anniversary combined with C for “concept” and X for “experimental”, the AWD C-X75 prototype promised a 220 mph top speed and a 0-60 mph click in under three seconds .Unfortunately for petrol heads, the prodigious concept was nipped… or was it? Jaguar is now saying 5 of the C-X75 will be built, 3 for the venerable British marque to keep for themselves and two to sell to very, very, very lucky (and rich) owners.
