Jaguar are pulling out all the stops for this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed with not only their latest performance cars but the debut of the Jaguar Project 7, an F-Type R with the DNA of a D-Type. But they’ve topped all that by deciding that their canned supercar project – the Jaguar C-X75 – deserves a proper outing in public.
Jaguar only have five development versions of the C-X75, but they’ve taken one to Goodwood – although it’s not on display – and are wheeling it out over the weekend to take part in the Michelin Supecar run up the hill.
Jaguar will be driving the C-X75 to the start line under electric power before firing up the supercharged and turbocharged 1.6 litre engine so they can throw the C-X75′s full fat 850bhp at the run.
We’re waiting for the first photos of the hillclimb run by the C-X75 to come in – and hopefully some video too – and we’ll update with more when we have it.
But if you’re at Goodwood today then make sure you’re in the right place for the supercar run – it should be worth the watch.
