Jaguar Supercar Named Concept Car of the Year

Mahwah, New Jersey – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine

The high-performance Jaguar C-X75 received top honors last night at the 10th annual North American Concept Vehicle of the Year Awards in Detroit, MI, where the stunning range extended supercar was named the Most Significant Concept Vehicle of 2011 in addition to receiving the Concept Car of the Year award.

The C-X75 received the highest overall score among the segment winners in the Car, Truck and Production Preview categories, to earn the night’s coveted award. This marks the first Most Significant Concept Vehicle honor for the brand and the third Concept Vehicle award. The Jaguar ALC concept won in 2005 and the C-XF in 2007.

North American Concept Vehicle of the Year Awards recognize those vehicles most likely to shape the future of the automobile industry. This year, more than two dozen jurors participated in a selection process that involved a total of 29 vehicles, each introduced to North America during this season’s auto shows in Los Angeles, Detroit, Chicago, Toronto, and New York. Finalists in this year’s Car category also included the Audi Quattro, the Mazda Shinari, and the Porsche 918 RSR Hybrid.

“The Jaguar C-X75 is one of the most visually arresting cars ever. Call it aggressive elegance. The novel turbine-based range-extender hybrid powertrain recalls the Chrysler Turbine Car, but looks ahead to what could be a practical alternative to conventional power sources,” said juror Chris Poole.

“We are extremely proud to have been named the Most Significant Concept Car of the Year,” said Ian Callum, Design Director for Jaguar. “We’re at our best when we’re breaking the mold – making our cars stand out for all the right reasons. C-X75 is an exciting project for us and a clear statement of Jaguar’s intent to continue creating bold, innovative and beautiful performance cars.”

The Most Significant Concept Car of the Year honor and the Concept Car of the Year award adds to the C-X75 supercar’s growing list of accolades, which includes being named AutoWeek’s ‘Best in Show’ at the 2010 Paris Moto Show and receiving the 2010 Louis Vuitton Classic Concept award in February.

The Jaguar C-X75 will offer performance on a par with the fastest production cars on the market, while adopting cutting-edge technology that offers remarkably economical running.
