Jaguar C-X75 said to star in next James Bond movie

Winnipeg Free Press - Section F - - AUTOS - By Nick Tragianis

JAGUAR’S mighty C-X75 never quite made it to pro­duc­tion, but that doesn’t mean it won’t get its shot at the big screen.

A new re­port from Au­to­car says there is a good chance the still­born C-X75 will make it into the next James Bond movie, Spec­tre, as the vil­lain’s car. There will be one key change, how­ever — rather than the ex­ist­ing hy­brid pow­er­train, the C-X75 will be pow­ered by Jaguar’s su­per­charged 5.0-litre V8 en­gine. Yes, the same snarly V8 as the Jaguar F-Type R.

Jaguar hasn’t con­firmed or de­nied the news, but hav­ing the flag­ship C-X75 star op­po­site the As­ton Martin DB10 makes sense given Jaguar Land Rover, as a company, is pro­vid­ing most of the cars for Spec­tre.

Also, Jaguar’s most re­cent ad­ver­tis­ing cam­paign is cen­tered on a ‘Good To Be Bad’ tagline.

Although it never made it to pro­duc­tion, the Jaguar C-X75 is ru­moured to have been cast as a vil­lian car in Spec­tre, the next James Bond movie.
