C-XF Shows Jaguar's Future Design Era
By Michelle Crimson
Jaguar pushes the green button and starts it futuristic design. The new design direction is imbibed in Jaguar C-XF concept car which will make its debut at the 2007 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Michigan.
"The Jaguar C-XF concept is the most dynamic and modern four-door car that Jaguar has ever created, a design showcase heralding the next generations of our sports saloon models," said Ian Callum, Design Director for Jaguar, in a statement.
According to Jaguar, the new sedan is not just another concept car – it is much more than that. The Jaguar auto body parts in C-XF sedan boast the most dynamic and modern styling that delivers a glimpse to the future for Jaguar. The exterior of the car is made pure and athletic; the interior is innovative and striking yet practical.
The grille is bold and aggressive; headlamps narrow and angular; aluminium wheels polished; and the color deliberately chosen to contribute to its overall vitality. "The tonality has a functional aspect but also extreme beauty; mechanical designs that are fit for purpose are often beautifully designed – we've taken our inspiration from machinery as diverse as aircraft to cameras in seeking to make the car look like it was milled from a solid piece of metal," said Julian Thomson, Head of Advanced Design.
C-XF has "one of the most exciting interiors Jaguar has ever done," Callum added. "C-XF is a showcase for innovative technology, some of which will feature in one way or another on the next generation of Jaguar cars. Every Jaguar interior should have a sense of fun, but we also recognise that technology should only be there when you want to use it. Yes, there is a sense of theatre about the innovations we have chosen to highlight on the C-XF, but there is also an organised simplicity that brings order and structure to every system."
CX-F is also equipped with 4.2-liter supercharged V8 engine, tuned to generate over 420bhp and 500Nm of torque. The engine mated to the a six-speed automatic delivers lightning-quick manual gearchanges; thanks to the Jaguar Sequential Shift System.
"Great Jaguars turn heads in the street. They make people stop and pay attention. They evoke instant desire. That's what the C-XF does and that's what the next generation of Jaguars will do," Callum noted. "Jaguars should be perceived as cool cars and cool cars attract interesting, edgy people. The next generations of Jaguars will do just that."
