In May 2011 Jaguar and Williams Advanced Engineering announced a collaboration to build the C-X75 hybrid supercar, one of the world’s highest performing and environmentally sustainable high performance vehicles. The C-X75 delivers incredibly low CO2 emissions of less than 99g/km while being able to achieve in excess of 200mph.
Williams Advanced Engineering has provided its engineering expertise in areas including aerodynamics, carbon composite manufacture and hybrid technologies.
A direct technology transfer between elite motorsport and road-going production cars has been key to the C-X75. The supercar’s chassis is made of carbon-fibre to create an incredibly lightweight, yet rigidly strong structure.
Built at the Williams factory in Grove, Oxfordshire, the Jaguar C-X75 is an example of Williams Advanced Engineering using its expertise to help produce one of the most advanced vehicles ever made.
