Jaguar’s magnificent C-X75 hybrid supercar concept has been awarded at the 10th annual North American Concept Vehicle of the Year Awards in Detroit, MI, with 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. That said, the car is no longer just a concept model, as the company announced its production plans for 250 units.

This dream car also has a dramatic price tag, ranging between £700,000 – £900,000.

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.
