At first glance, the “Jaguar C-XF” concept has nothing to do with the usual corporate identity of cars decorated with a cat on the grille. Kinship can only be caught with the current coupe of the HC series. But nevertheless, in the outlines of the car - swift and athletic, with powerful “hips” - there is something familiar to fans of the British brand, famous not only for dynamic sedans, but also for coupes and roadsters. It is no coincidence that the chief designer of Jaguar Jan Callum, speaking of the C-XF concept, recalls the famous Mark VII and Mark 2 models of 1950 and 1959.
Not sybaritic luxury, but comfortable practicality - this principle, laid down in the exterior, is continued by the style of the interior. But to understand this, you first need to put your hand to the car door. Only then do the handles come out, and the radiator grill hospitably lights up in blue. By the way, this is one of the colorists loved by Jaguar designers. The idea of live communication with the machine continues to control. As soon as the driver takes his seat, the Start button pulsates in red. Press it - at the same time with a quiet well-fed rumbling of a cat's gut, shiny rings on the central tunnel will drop and the gear lever will appear. The interior will be enveloped in a light, again bluish glow, spreading from the instrument panel to the doors. The display in the center of the panel is also activated, bringing your hand closer to it. In general, a car is really capable of causing associations with an animal - strong, fast, agile and at the same time well-mannered, obedient.
Four occupied comfortable chairs trimmed with finest leather with invisible seams. You can go! I’m sure a sedan and even a coupe will have enough of an engine with a supercharger familiar from serial “jaguars”. 420 hp engine and 500 N.m, it can accelerate the car to 248 km / h, and if you turn off the limiter, the car will pick up at 290 km / h.
Aerodynamics worked out diligently. Let's say the hole under the rear bumper is a diffuser for the air flow creating low pressure under the bottom of the car.
