In this video review we get behind the wheel of the Jaguar C-X75, which was first revealed at the Paris motor show in 2010. Originally meant as a celebration of all things Jaguar, the C-X75 features a four-cylinder turbo and supercharged engine, with nearly 900bhp output thanks to hybrid motors on the front and rear axle.

We teamed up with Jaguar chassis guru Mike Cross, to take the C-X75 around Jaguar's testing circuit. Two prototypes were put on charge for 20 minutes beforehand to ensure that they delivered the full 880bhp.

On the straight, the C-X75 easily hit 198mph. Yet, for such an extreme machine, the ride was composed and the steering felt natural and light, akin to that of the normal road car.

Overall, the C-X75 reached 0-60mph in under 3 seconds, and 0-100mph in just 6 seconds. Sadly, it's set to remain an engineering project for now, but expect Jaguar to put what they've learnt into action with its future cars. Check the video review to find out more.
