Starting with inspiration, the journey includes creating sketchwork, material choice and sculpting full-size clay models created for the C-X75 Concept.
It is revealed that for that in the early design phase of a new car, approximately five hundred sketches are pencilled before a single theme is decided upon.
Also on display are a selection of Jaguar’s current range of cars; the XFR, XKR-S and XJ Supersport. The company’s stands are located in the Farmiloe Building.
Hugo Nightingale, Senior Designer, Jaguar Cars, said: “We want to explain to people the art of creating a car. In some companies car design is a technical, cold process. At Jaguar it is about emotion, artistry and craftsmanship.”
“Clerkenwell Design Week is the perfect environment for us to present the C-X75 to the design world and explain how its existence was founded on a desire to continue Jaguar’s design philosophy of flowing lines, purity of form and bespoke luxury for years to come.”
On the C-X75 Ian Callum, Design Director, Jaguar Cars, commented, “The C-X75 is everything a Jaguar should be.
“It possesses remarkable poise and grace yet at the same time has the excitement and potency of a true supercar. You could argue this is as close to a pure art form as a concept car can get.”
