Jaguar Cancels Plans for C-X75 Hybrid Supercar

Jaguar cancels its over $1 million hybrid supercar plans

Images and details of the proposed Jaguar hybrid supercar turned up a while back. The car sounded very interesting and certainly looked cool. However, I'm sure I wasn't alone in wondering why Jaguar want to be creating a hybrid supercar at this point. The answer to that question is, Jaguar isn't.

The car company has announced that it has canceled any plans to build and sell the C-X75 Hybrid Supercar. Jaguar blames tough marketing conditions that have made building the $1.1 million per unit car unviable. I suspect building the car wasn't viable last week either and now that Jaguar has wrung all the headlines a can of the vehicle it has canceled plans.

If you're ready to drop huge money on a hybrid supercar you will have to stick with the Porsche 918. It's too bad Jaguar can't just use sexy design it made up for the hybrid supercar in a significantly cheaper vehicle.

Supersexy Alfa Romeo 6C to Share Platform with Supersexy Maserati Alfieri

Aug 26 2014 4:30pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

It’s been almost a year and a half since we dropped a huge stack of knowledge on the Alfa Romeo 6C coupe, and little has changed since then. Plans still call for it to be sexy as hell (the rendering above shows an early styling direction), share underpinnings with a Maserati, and arrive in roughly 2017. But there has been one major development. Thanks to a recent report from Auto Express, we know exactly with which Maser the 6C will be twinned: the stunning Alfieri, ...

Filed under: Motorsports, Classics, Coupe, Performance, Europe, Videos, Jaguar, Celebrities, Luxury From 1927 to 1957, the Mille Miglia was one of the great, romantic European road races of the golden era of motorsports. The cars were fast, beautiful and loud but also extremely dangerous and regularly claimed drivers' lives. After two fatal accidents in '57, the event finally had to reform and came back in 1977 as a h ...
