The Jaguar C-X75 concept will probably never make it to production, but it will get the spotlight on the big screen.
The now-cancelled 850-hp hybrid sports car is rumored to star opposite the Aston Martin DB10 as the main car for the villain in the upcoming James Bond film, Spectre. According to a report from Autocar, the C-X75 will replace its hybrid powertrain with the British automaker’s 5.0-liter supercharged V8. It also makes sense that Jaguar’s C-X75 would take on the role of a villainous car, considering its marketing campaign currently plays off the “Good to be Bad” tagline.
Official announcements on the C-X75’s inclusion in the upcoming film are expected to come next year and it won’t be the first time the automaker’s vehicles are driven by Bond villains. In the 2006 movie Casino Royale, both the Jaguar XJ8 and XKR graced the silver screen.
