The car Jaguar used to capture imaginations in 2010 is back, if only for a moment, in a video remembering what could have been. 

Now, a new video is taking a look back at Jaguar’s cancelled supercar project: the C-X75.

Originally meant to be a jet turbine-powered supercar, the project yielded three prototypes that used a 1.6-liter turbocharged and supercharged four cylinder engine along with two electric motors for a total output over 850 hp. Top speed was supposed to be 220 mph, and the unusual exotic would have travelled over 37 miles without burning gas.

Between its exotic style and bonkers brochure specifications, the plug-in hybrid project had heads turned. That made it all the more painful when Jaguar announced its cancellation.

Bigger players like Ferrari and McLaren were building their own exclusive supercars and Jag needed to focus on reaching a broader market. After all, the plan was always included limiting production to 250 units — each priced over $1 million.
