Since 1935, Jaguar has been a byword for inspirational design, and a badge of British manufacturing pride.
The E-TYPE, launched in 1961, was described by Enzo Ferrari as “the most beautiful car ever made.”
In that era, Jaguar was known for ‘Grace, Space, Pace’ – “a special kind of motoring which no other car in the world can offer.”
For a taste of what else is on the horizon, Jaguar’s official concept cars page is a good place to start. But what happens when you let other designers loose to come up with their own futuristic Jaguar car concepts?
Here, we take a closer look at 5 of the coolest we’ve found…
Jaguar ‘Consul’ concept
This autonomous vehicle concept takes inspiration from the E-TYPE, with a design intended to maximise interior space and passenger privacy. The final render on a rainy city street is pretty convincing – we’d certainly love to take it for a spin.
Designer: Hanchang LIU and team – Transportation Design student at ISD-Rubika, France.
Jaguar ‘C-XJS’ concept
This design is described as a modern reinterpretation of the super-rare Jaguar XJ220S – a modern hypercar concept, sketched in striking 80s neon tones.
Designer: Youki Kotani – Automotive and Transport Design student at Coventry University, UK
Jaguar ‘Naked’ concept
This bold, sci-fi inspired design imagines what a Jaguar might look like in 2035. The car features an electric motor, and 3D-printed ‘space frame’. Batman wouldn’t look out of place in one of these.
Designer: Team Naked, Brazil
Jaguar ‘Envision XK’ concept
The Brazilian team behind this have adapted the recognisable XK design, introducing elements from later models including the CX-75 and F-TYPE.
Designer: Jenn Mueng – Designer, Menlo Park, California, USA
Jaguar ‘Out of This World’ concept
We’re not too sure what to say about this one, as the designer didn’t provide any commentary, but what’s not to like about a chromed-out Jaguar parked up on a surreal alien landscape. As an intrepid interplanetary explorer from the future, what more could you want?
Designer: Pavel Protsenko – Post-Production Designer at Positive Pictures Production, Kyiv, Ukraine
