Another opportunity to see Jaguar’s superb hybrid supercar, the C-X75, will be at the Wilton Classic and Supercar event this weekend the 4th August 2013.  On hand to answer questions about the car will be experts from both Jaguar and the C-X75 programme partner, Williams Advanced Engineering.

Alongside the C-X75 will be Jaguar’s latest addition to their stable, the convertible F-TYPE which will be placed in a prominent position at the event.  Jaguar will also celebrate its sports car heritage with the presentation of privately owned examples of the rare XJ220 and XJR-15 sports cars.

Lord Pembroke, owner of Wilton House and founder of the Wilton Classic and Supercar event, said,

“We will be celebrating the finest sports car ever built at this year’s event, and to have Jaguar present with this collection is very exciting. Jaguar has a rich history in producing sports cars that exude beautiful design, technical innovation and outstanding performance and I look forward to welcoming this great British brand to Wilton House.”

As we’ve mentioned before on AutoVolt Magazine, Jaguar pulled the plug on producing the C-X75 as a result of the global economic climate.  However, the car still exhibits unrivalled performance and technology making it a clear and powerful showcase for Jaguar’s world-leading expertise in lightweight vehicle construction and the ideal test-bed for the company’s innovative research into high-performance, low-emission powertrains.

The great achievements in the development of C-X75 prototypes – including cutting-edge hybrid technologies, carbon composite materials and advanced design solutions pioneered in association with Williams Advanced Engineering – will be utilised in other areas of research and development, innovative future products and next-generation engineering for the Jaguar and Land Rover brands.

We’re wonder whether Jaguar’s forthcoming newcomer, their answer to the BMW 3-Series or Mercedes C-Class, will feature any of the technological developments seen in the C-X75 but we will have to wait and see.  Our hope is they’re busy working on squeezing the hybrid technology into an XF or XJ saloon…
