Felipe Massa gets behind the wheel of the Jaguar C-X75

Brazilian Formula 1 racing driver Felipe Massa got a chance to get behind the wheel of the fabulous Jaguar C-X75 that features in the latest Bond film SPECTRE. Driven by henchman Mr. Hinx (played by Dave Bautista), the car is involved in a breakneck car chase with Bond’s Aston Martin DB10 through nighttime Rome.

The C-X75 has a combined power output in excess of 850bhp and 1000Nm of torque, thanks to its state-of-the-art, Formula 1-inspired, 1.6-litre dual-boosted (turbocharged and supercharged) four-cylinder powerplant which generates 502 bhp at 10,000 rpm.

It is allied to the highest torque and power density electric motors in production, which generate a further 390 horsepower. The battery pack in the C-X75 is the highest continuously rated power PHEV pack in the world, capable of delivering more than 300kW over the full state of the charge window.

The C-X75 can sprint from 0-100mph in less than six seconds, thanks to its advanced 7-speed automated manual transmission that allows gearshifts in under 200 milliseconds. The very first C-X75 prototype exceeded 200mph in testing with ease, and the car has a theoretical maximum velocity of 220mph.
