View Thread: Jaguar FX-10

As you now know Wednesday's are concept of the week day. So i will post the Jaguar XF-10 today.
Himmel is very clear when it comes to his Jaguar XF 10. It’s pure fantasy, something he – not any of his designers and no outside interests – wanted to do, and did. A very muscular, closed two seater with lots of racing background. Even the name spells racing, X is a well-used Jaguar letter, from the XK120 to today’s X-Type, but the F spells Formula and 10 is the number of cylinders used in the current Grand Prix engines. At the same time there are traces of roadability here too, reflecting the famous C- and D-types who could easily be driven on the road from Coventry and back, winning a Le Mans race on the way.
The technical nature of f1 found clear expression in the form of the car through unmistakeable performance.

The Subaru and Saab 9-2 concepts were both aimed at this Jag i believe.

Straight out of the article:

Lately we have seen the Subaru B11 S concept car, which debuted at Geneva this spring. Also Fuore design, in spite of Andreas Zapatinas (ex Pininfarina, Fiat, BMW and Alfa) being hired by Subaru last year to get some sense of direction into Subaru design. The B 11 S was apparently penned by a young Subaru designer, Yoji Takenaka and the sketches given to Fuore Design International to develop. Ask Himmel about that, and the famous discretion is also very much in evidence.

But even if it is generally known that Fuore has an accord with Subaru to look into all kinds of corporate design , it is interesting that at the same time as Himmel whipped the red cloth of his dramatic Barcelona concept, Subaru made it known that they were going to establish their own design studio in Barcelona.
