Williams Advanced Engineering partnered with Jaguar to create the revolutionary C-X75, a hybrid supercar that was developed and launched in just 18 months.
The challenge set for the project was monumental: the vehicle had to achieve the performance of a Bugatti Veyron, the emissions of a Toyota Prius and the pure electric range of a Chevrolet Volt. Applying all of Williams Advanced Engineering’s Formula One-bred expertise, the C-X75 is a rolling showcase for innovation in aerodynamics, carbon composite manufacture and hybrid technologies.
The figures speak for themselves: CO2 emissions of less than 99g/km, a maximum speed in excess of 200mph – not to mention the ability to sprint from standstill to 60mph in under three seconds – and a pure electric driving range of 50km.
The C-X75 also graced the silver screen: Williams Advanced Engineering built six C-X75s for the 24th James Bond film, SPECTRE, with the car featuring in the chase pursuing Bond through the streets of Rome.
