Jaguar C-X16 Concept





Quite a stupid name, really.
For something that is supposed to become a production model soon.

This is supposedly really close to what jaguar's new "Cayman fighter" would look like when it comes out sometime next year.

It looks fine, but I just wish they'd put more "Jaguar" into it.
Especially up front where it looks like it could be anything, from almost anyone. It even has a bit of Nissan feel to it.
It could almost be the next Z...

A Jaguar should be much more....

I think the car looks awesome myself. I do think the tail lights could use a little more work though.

It's like a Nissan 370Z and Aston Martin DB9 had a baby. Not a bad design, but not classic Jaguar.

Your comments are exactly what I was thinking when I saw it. The name has no connection to Jaguar, and the styling has no connection to other Jaguars except a little bit in the grill opening. Could have been a lot more exciting.

It's pretty recognizable as a jag. You have to remember that all the design languages are changing for them. Car has a baby BABY Aston look to it. Especially the interior.

The name is in reference to Callum's time at Jaguar, C for concept, and 16 references the fact that this is the 16th Jaguar that Callum has designed.

a refreshing new entry, this would def be a standout car in the class.
