Sheffield company at the forefront of technology with Jaguar C-X75 concept car

26th April 2012

Arguably one of the most beautiful cars in the world: Jaguar's latest concept car, the C-X75, owes thanks for part of its utter desirability to Sheffield's specialist LED lighting company, Olmec Advanced Materials, which is responsible for the car's state of the art interior lighting.

Jaguar describes the C-X75 as 'a look into the future of automotive technology', exploring 'the outer limits of performance and sustainability' and 'an innovative test-bed for the technologies of tomorrow'.Featured on the ultimate car programme, Top Gear, the programme's presenters couldn't find a sorry word to say about the electric, gas turbine powered, 205 mile an hour bullet which can achieve 0-60 mph in 3.4 seconds.  Describing it as Jaguar's 75th birthday present to itself and rather tongue in cheek as 'a bit of a looker', Richard Hammondglided around the car's striking exterior which takes some of its design ideas from iconic Jaguars of the 50s and 60s.  He then led viewers into the equally impressive and innovative 'modern and cool' interior, where the dramatic entrance is created by lighting from Olmec's Surelight range products, which includes energy saving LED options.  The driver's own driving experience can be enhanced at the touch of a button as he alters the fabulous interior mood lightingaccording to his mode of driving. Top Gear's presentation of the C-X75 can be seen on Surelight's web site at http://www.surelight.com/surelight_lighting_gallery_video_gallery.htm.
