Revealed back in 2010, the C-X75 concept made Jaguar stun the automotive world. It’s nothing short of a masterpiece: hybrid powertrain, gas turbine engine, curved body lines and, on top of everything, the star of James Bond’s Spectre movie.

While it sadly never made it to production, the first of the four stunt cars is now up for grabs. RM Sotheby’s is hosting the auction for chassis number 001. The car was built by Williams Advanced Engineering, the team with tremendous history in F1, spreading over decades.

Dave Bautista drove the car in the movie Spectre (as the villain), while Felipe Massa had it for a drive at the Mexico Grand Prix to promove the film.

While the outer body gives out notes of elegance with its refined edges, on the inside, the C-X75 boasts a racer-car like cockpit. Given its stunt car status, there are plenty of knobs and buttons on the dashboard, mostly encased by rough metallic boxes.

A small MOMO steering wheel is accompanied by optimized paddle shifters working the sequential gearbox.

Auction will take place on 30th of November in Abu Dhabi. RM Sotheby’s estimates a sale price between $800.000 and $1.2 million for the C-X75. The car comes along with Jaguar’s Special Operation Vehicles spec sheet and a copy of the Spectre production call sheet featuring the chase-sequence filming.
