Jaguar to reveal C-X16 coupe at Frankfurt
Jaguar is set to show off the future of its coupe range at the Frankfurt motor show, with the new C-X16 production concept set to make its first appearance.
The company describes the car as being "a precursor to future Jaguar sports cars that will aim to set new class benchmarks in design, vehicle dynamics and technology". It was designed by Ian Callum, and the team behind the Jaguar XJ, XF and XK.
Callum, director of design at Jaguar, said of the car: "Great Jaguars have always been beautiful, innovative and have looked firmly to the future. The finished C-X16 concept has the potential to do these things while retaining the ability to surprise, to excite and invigorate."
There are little firm details about the car before it makes its debut at the show, but it is understood that it will be a sub-XK sports car that will most likely come with a V6 petrol engine to start off with. Prices are rumoured to be in the region of £50,000, so it will be up against the likes of the top of the range Porsche Caymans.
Adrian Hallmark, global brand director for Jaguar, said: "Jaguar has set in place bold, ambitious plans for the future. This production concept demonstrates the depth of design and engineering ability we have within Jaguar to make these plans come to life."
