The Jaguar C-X75 is set to make a surprise public dynamic debut today at Goodwood Festival of Speed. 


The prototype hypercar, one of only five development and test cars in existence,  will make its public dynamic debut in the Michelin Supercar Run today along with a number of exciting new sporting cars from Jaguar: XJR, XFR-S, XKR-S GT and Jaguar Project 7 - a unique design study based on the F-TYPE.


The Michelin Supercar hill run takes place twice daily throughout the Festival, starting today at approximately 1pm. The Jaguar C-X75 will only be available in front of public eyes at these times, and will not be on static display at any other time throughout the Festival weekend.


The C-X75 will make its way from its hidden enclosure to the hill in silent electric-mode before firing up its innovative 1.6-litre, supercharged and turbocharged four-cylinder engine on the start line.


Generating a combined electric and petrol-powered total in excess of 850hp, the all-wheel drive C-X75 is likely to set a blistering pace and generate a purposeful sound as it scorches up the narrow, winding 1.1 mile run, thereby making an impressive and unforgettable dynamic first impression on the Goodwood crowds.


Although the decision was taken in 2012 that as a result of the global economic climate the C-X75 would not enter full production, it was clear that it was a powerful showcase for Jaguar's world-leading expertise in lightweight vehicle construction and the ideal test-bed for the company''s innovative research into high-performance, low-emission powertrains.


The great achievements in the development of C-X75 prototypes - including cutting-edge hybrid technologies, carbon composite materials and advanced design solutions pioneered in association with Williams Advanced Engineering - will be utilised in other areas of research and development, innovative future products and next-generation engineering for the Jaguar and Land Rover brands.
