Jaguar C-X75 to lead London Concours’ Hypercar display this June

The London Concours has announced that this June’s show, now little over a month away, will feature a celebration of the most outlandish, evocative cars of all: the hypercars.

At the centre of the Hypercar display this June will be a creation that captured the imagination of British petrol heads in a way few other cars have: the legendary Jaguar C-X75 prototype. Unveiled in 2010, and produced in partnership with Williams Advanced Engineering, the C-X75 was a hypercar for the future, an all-wheel drive, plug in hybrid machine. It was powered by a Formula 1 inspired, all-aluminium 1.6-litre, turbo and supercharged four-cylinder motor which produced a remarkable 502bhp at a stratospheric 10,000 rpm. The feral engine was supplemented by a potent pair of power dense electric motors which gave instant torque, whilst also enabling it to travel up to 60km in pure electric mode.

Combined outputs for the concept were rated at 850bhp and 738lb/ft of torque, enough to propel the C-X75 from 0-60mph in under 3 seconds, 0-100mph in under 6 seconds, and on to a top speed of 220mph. The car on display this June featured in the James Bond film “Spectre” and has recently been made road legal by legendary designer Ian Callum’s firm, friends and partners of the Concours, CALLUM.  It is the only road going C-X75 in the world and remains one of the finest examples of British engineering brilliance.

The display will feature, among others, another celebrated British Hypercar, the remarkable McLaren P1. When launched back in 2013 the 903bhp, 217 mph P1 was unlike anything the world had seen before, with violent performance thanks to a 3.8-litre twin turbo V8 and potent electric motor. With active rear wing extended fully and working in tandem with the slashed and vented bodywork, the P1 could generate 600kg of downforce at 160 mph, helping it lap the Nürburgring in under 7 minutes. June’s show will feature the very car that set that Nürburgring lap time, the famous factory development prototype P1 ‘XP2R’. A rare public appearance for one of the most significant examples of a true hypercar great.

Beyond the cars, guests to the Honorary Artillery Company will be treated to a decadent range of food and drink options – including the all-day Club Concours hospitality experience, engaging live stage discussions, as well as a carefully selected line-up of luxury brands and boutiques. London Concours 2024 is set to be another unforgettable occasion of automotive indulgence.
