I was right about the Jaaaag

Not too many posts ago, I commented on how the Jaguar C-X16 concept car looked an awful lot like a production version. Well, during some sort of private event in Los Angeles, designer Ian Callum “all but confirmed” that this handsome car would be put into production. The only thing that’s missing, apart from an outright confirmation, is a proper name. “See-Ex-Dash-Sixteen” doesn’t sound that catchy, and a great looking vehicle like this calls for more subtle yet imposing name.
Now I’m not usually one who will have his head turned by stupidly expensive sports cars, and I couldn’t have given less of a s**t when the usual motor cronies were bleating about the Aston Martin Zagato or the new Lambo Whatever-It’s-Called, but this Jag has something about it. Maybe it’s the zany-sounding 3.0 litre V6 with its 8-gear transmission and hybrid powertrain, or that sideways-opening back window that pays tribute to the E-Type. It just looks desirable. And that red leather/velour interior… phwaor!
