Oxford Diecast 76JCX75001 Jaguar C-X75 Prototype Silver
Scale 1:76, 00 Gauge
As concept cars go, this is up with the very top few, at a price to match! Designed and built as a hybrid-electric, 2 seat car produced by Jaguar in partnership with Williams F1, the C-XJ5 was unveiled at the 2010 Paris Motor Show to an awestruck audience of petrolheads, as a vision for the future! The concept Jaguar is capable of producing 778 horsepower through four YASA electric motors, each of which drives one wheel. The batteries driving these motors are recharged using two diesel-fed micro gas turbines.
In May 2011, Jaguar announced plans to build a maximum of 250 cars over a two year period, commencing in 2013, which would retail at between £700,000 and £900,000 each. However, the company announced at the end of 2012 that due to the global economic crisis, it was cancelling production. However, one example did make the big screen when it starred in Spectre, the 24th James Bond film, driven not by 007 who favoured an Aston Martin DB10 but by one of his adversaries Mr Hinx.
Oxford's 1:76 scale replica is certainly much easier to obtain and at a realistic price! Oxford's C-X75 is decorated in a superb silver which shows off its lines and detail to perfection, at the same time oozing unbelievable opulence. The futuristic Jaguar registration plate reads simply C-X16 to the rear and the classic Jaguar badge sits proudly in the centre of the radiator grille. The interior is completely black, adding to the aura of this amazing vehicle.
