The Jaguar C-X75 concept has found new life, just not with Jaguar. A Hungarian startup company named Kincsem is planning to launch their own hypercar with a design based on the aforementioned concept from 2010.
Kincsem teased the vehicle recently, which they’re dubbing the Kincsem Hyper-GT. The teaser image showed a vague shape of a performance car, with wheel accents showing a striking similarity to the C-X75. The startup intends to reveal the vehicle’s full design later this year.
This isn’t just a moment of inspiration, however. Kincsem is getting the design from Ian Callum, the now solo designer that was once working for Jaguar. He was the mind behind the original C0X75 concept, which was showcased in 2010 at the Paris International Motor Show. Originally pushing for production, the model was cancelled in 2012, with the only examples ever made being used in the James Bond movie Spectre. With this, the Kincsem Hyper-GT is the most spiritual successor you’ll find for the source material.
Under the sleek body, we can expect four electric motors with an internal combustion engine for extending range. If it hits production, it’ll be built in a factory in the UK in 2023. An SUV with the same powertrain is expected to follow, but details on that are scarce at the moment.
Think they’ll make a version rated for the States?
