Sad news — The Jaguar C-X75 is no more

It is with great regret that we have to inform you of the death of the Jaguar C-X75. The British hybrid supercar, first seen at the Paris Motorshow in 2010, and which you can listen to here, was due to enter production next year, the firm intending to build 250 cars each costing close to £1 million.
That now won’t happen, and economic reasons are to blame, principally the fact that Jaguar no longer believes it can make an “adequate return on investment”.
Linked to that, inevitably, is the current global economic situation. “By the time we got to market with this, we expected normality to have returned”, said brand director Adrian Hallmark, “and even though we could carry on and could fund it, it’s not a major part of our investment. When we look at the global environment and the austerity and the difficulties being faced out there, to bring to market an £800,000-£1 million supercar just feels wrong”.

The good news, however, is that development of the powertrain — including the insane turbines — will continue. For more deets, visit TopGear.com
