James Bond will be rocking an Aston Martin DB10 in SPECTRE but he'll apparently be outclassed by the baddie who will get behind the wheel of the ill-fated Jaguar C-X75.

According to Autocar, the cancelled supercar will make a splash on the big screen as the vehicle of choice for the film's villain. Nothing is official but the magazine says the model will eschews it high-tech plug-in hybrid powertrain for a familiar supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine.

As a refresher, Jaguar introduced the C-X75 concept at the 2010 Paris Motor Show. Following critical acclaim, the company announced plans to build 250 models which would cost between £700,000 - £900,000 (€882,105 - €1,134,045 / $1,096,660 - $1,406,220). Unfortunately, it fell victim to the global economic crisis as Jaguar officially killed the model in late 2012.
