Jaguar sends out a message with the C-X16..

With just over a week to go until it’s unveiling at the Frankfurt motor show, Jaguar has released another image – this time of the soon-to-be-revealed C-X16 sports car hiding under the covers during filming in the Graian Italian Alps.

As teasers go, it’s distinctly underwhelming, but it got me thinking about the location of the film shoot and what this tells us about Jaguar’s new 911 rival.

The more I see the XKR-S, the more I warm to its smack-you-in-the-face looks, which convey in a far from subtle manner that…er, the XKR-S is anything but subtle.

Jaguar will launch its most powerful ever production car, at the Geneva Motor Show on March 1st.

This all-new XKR-S will broaden the appeal of the XK range combining GT luxury with incredible performance, with its more powerful supercharged V8 engine, uprated suspension and a new aerodynamic design. the XKR-S is the ultimate expression of Jaguar’s long held duality of purpose: GT luxury with incredible performance.

Jaguar C-X75 makes its London premiere

After making its world debut at the Paris motor show, and becoming the star attraction at the Los Angeles motor show, the C-X75 is now turning heads in Knightsbridge as Londoners, tourists and even the odd celebrity stop to gaze at it through the window of the Jaguar Boutique.

No spotlights. No evocative music. No video walls playing carefully crafted videos. Unlike its world premiere on the stage at the Paris Motor Show, the first time Jaguar’s celebratory (75 years of heritage) and celebrated C-X75 set foot on the open road was a more gritty and real experience.

It might be Hollywood, but its edgy North Hollywood, not the Walk of Fame or the Sunset Strip, where Tinseltown’s favourite petrolhead Jay Leno became the first person outside Jaguar to drive the C-X75 on a public highway.
