JAGUAR: When designing a car capable of speeds in excess of 200 mph, aerodynamics is crucial. Your average supercar muscles its way through the air, covered in wings and spoilers to help with grip. A much more elegant approach was taken with the C-X75. Aerodynamics informed every aspect of the exterior design.
Using an underbody Venturi and directional exhaust gas control, the car was kept as compact as possible. In fact, the movement of air itself was one of the principle drivers behind many of the design cues incorporated into the bodywork.
The C-X75 also claims its birthright of performance with a simple “teardrop” central fuselage surrounded by prominent wheel arches. Shorter, lower, and sleeker than any concept car before it, the C-X75 strikes the perfect balance between high speed and high design.
The C-X75 is proof that sustainability can be successfully achieved without sacrificing the legendary performance, innovative design and unprecedented luxury that is the Jaguar standard. Materials were selected with a sense of responsibility- both to the purity of the car’s design and to its efficiency.
As with the current XJ, up to 50% of the C-X75’s structure is made of recycled aluminium. In addition to its sustainable qualities, the lightweight metal enhances performance and agility, giving it a distinct edge over the current crop of supercars.
An eye for the sustainable extends inside the cabin as well. Both the Ceramic dashboard leather and the Storm Grey leather were sourced from the Scottish company Bridge of Weir, one of the most environmentally efficient leather producers in the world.
