Jaguar C-X75 wins award

The Jaguar C-X75 has been awarded the Louis Vuitton Classic Concept Award 2010.

The Jaguar C-X75 has been awarded the Louis Vuitton Classic Concept Award 2010. Judges on the Louis Vuitton panel included author Serge Bellu, Louis Vuitton's Director of Innovation Xavier Dixsaut, McLaren F1 designer Gordon Murray, former Porsche design head Harm Lagaaij and journalist Masafumi Suzuki.

The Jaguar C-X75 is an electric supercar built to celebrate 75 years of the Jaguar marque and was praised by the panel for the way in which it showcased the technology of the future with a beautiful design without looking to the past.

The Jaguar C-X75 is a two-seater supercar, but its biggest surprise is hidden under the bonnet. The Jaguar C-X75 uses a pair of micro-turbines acting like a diesel-fed range-extender and Jaguar claims this solution means this concept car is even cleaner than contemporary hybrids with carbon dioxide emissions of just 28g/km. The Jaguar C-X75 is only a concept supercar, but it's a clear statement of Jaguar's intent to continue creating bold, innovative and beautiful performance cars.
