The Jaguar C-X75 will star at the Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show. It will be the centrepiece of the Jaguar Classic Parts stand at the Birmingham NEC show, being held on 15-17 November.

The ill-fated concept, which will be built in tiny quantities for well-heeled enthusiasts, looked like a promising addition to the supercar ranks, when first shown in 2010, but now joins the XJ13 and XJ220 in never truly delivering its promises. The prototype is said to sprint from 0-100mph in less than four seconds, and go on to a maxumum speed of 220mph – but thanks to hybrid technology, outputs less than 89g/km of CO2, and can drive in EV mode for 40 miles.

For the lovers of more classic big cats, the company’s stand will also star some more traditional vehicles from the Jaguar Heritage collection. The cars on display will include: XK120, E-type, XJ40, XJ-S, X300, XKR and XFR Rocketsports, all outstanding Jaguars from different eras.

A further highlight to this years’ stand in Hall 20 will be a wide range of genuine parts available on display. Jaguar Classic Parts are clearly stating that its commitment to the preservation of classic Jaguar cars has never been stronger. Jaguar Classic Parts offer a total of 26,000 genuine parts for classic Jaguars that are available from the website or to order through the local dealer. Owners of vintage models will be pleased to know that all older model catalogues are available on the Jaguar Classic Parts website and are free to browse.

Jaguar Classic Parts will be providing a limited number of vouchers enabling Jaguar owners to receive a discount on their next order. Jaguar Classic Parts technical advisers will be on hand to answer parts queries and give expert advice.

  1. Nice, but maybe not as exciting as the M-reg pre-production Princess Wedge that will be on our stand, at the very back of the show obviously!

  2. I can confirm that the C-X75 is an absolutely stunning car to look at, but it was just too far removed from JLR’s regular vehicles to be a viable proposition. It’s a shame that the basic style can’t be used with a more conventional drive train to produce an Audi R8 rival.

  3. @ Landyboy:

    Agreed. The basic style would certainly be worthy of inspiration for the next generation XK model in order to give it further distance for the current F Type.

    @ Others:

    Another attraction of the forthcoming Classic Motor Show will be the reuniting of two of the original six Rover 200 BRM LE press cars – one of which is owned by the forum thebrm.co.uk and the other by one of its members. Today (Tuesday) the forum acquired another press car although the size constraints of the stand, together with the time needed to prepare this latest acquisition, means it won’t be taking part in the Classic Motor Show’s “reunited” theme next month.
