Jaguar C-X16 photoshoot, downtown LA
This was a pleasant surprise— a set of very nice, relatively organic images (for a manufacturer) of the Jaguar C-X16 from a downtown LA photoshoot, no doubt meant to dovetail with the 2011 LA Auto Show that happened a couple weeks ago.
The question is, what do folks think of the car? While not perfect (we would have liked to see a bit more restraint exercised in the styling), it’s unquestionably the most exciting thing Jaguar has done in recent memory— to say it evokes a baby Aston Martin, albeit edgier (for better or for worse), wouldn’t be far off the mark we think. Perhaps not what Jag was aiming for, but that’s certainly not a bad thing. And we absolutely love the side-hinged rear window opening— a superbly-executed homage to the E-Type.
