Jaguar C-X75 supercar from James Bond movie put on saleJanuary 19, 2019
At the auction put one of the four cars built for filming.
British dealership Kaaimans International put up for sale supercar Jaguar C-X75, which participated in the filming of the film “Spectrum” – the 24th picture of James Bond. The cost of the car is not disclosed – it will inform the potential buyer on request.
The car put up for sale was used by stuntmen – this is one of four copies of a supercar built specifically for filming. The coupe is equipped with a five-liter V8 petrol engine with a mechanical supercharger, the power of which is not specified. The same unit is used on “charged” models of the Jaguar Land Rover group, where it gives out up to 575 horsepower.
The hybrid supercar was developed by Jaguar since 2011, but the company subsequently decided to close the project. Brand management doubted that they could sell the entire planned circulation of two hundred cars. The cost of each car was supposed to be about 1.15 million dollars.
Above the coupe, Jaguar worked with the Williams Formula One team. The prototype had a hybrid power plant based on a 1.6-liter engine with a mechanical supercharger and a turbine that gave out about 500 horsepower. Also, the car was completed with two electric motors and a set of lithium-ion batteries. The total output of the units should have been about 1000 horsepower.
Last year they sold Land Rover Defender at the auction, which also participated in the shooting of the film “Spectrum”. An SUV with a forced engine, a safety cage and a modified suspension was bought for 365.5 thousand pounds sterling. For the film was built 10 Land Rover Defender.
