Its a sort of mix between a Cobra, Zagato & Austin Healey.

I have just got back from the cinema after watching the latest Bond movie which has some stunning cars to drool over. Not just the old DB5 and the DB10 but a car that I could not identify at the time which google tells me is a Jaguar C-X75 concept car that sadly will never be put into production.

I wonder what it would cost to build something that looks similar to this, maybe using a MR2 mk2?

I saw one at Williams (they did the development). It is absolutely stunning and perfect from every angle. Baffling why they have no plans for it.

Just spotted the possibility of this . DB10 on a SLK 350 base. Not sure if Chris would be happy to copy a "concept car" or not !

That looks like a good donor choice windscreen looks very close
Dump the 1000kg convertible roof and the performance and economy will be even better

How about a DB10 style using a Jaguar XK as a base?

I didn't literally mean that one - just an idea really, as they seem to be dropping in price a bit now
