Frankfurt 11' Preview: Jaguar C-X16 Concept Sketch Released

Jaguar is going to be showing off a new concept at next month’s Frankfurt Motor Show. To give us a little preview of the concept, Jaguar has released this single sketch of the C-X16 “production concept” car.

The C-X16 concept is meant to show the future of Jaguar and according to the automaker, the concept is “a precursor to future Jaguar sports cars that will aim to set new class benchmarks in design, vehicle dynamics and technology”.

Jaguar Director of Design Ian Callum recently stated, “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.”

Since the concept is being labeled a “production concept” car, it’s likely that what we will see next month, will be close to a future production model. It’s actually being reported that the concept is based on a shortened version of the Jaguar XK platform and that the production version will be a two-seater available in both coupe and convertible versions.

Stay tuned for all the details next month.
