The second important figure is Jaguar, a company formed in 1922, that first created motorcycle sidecars and was first named Swalow Sidecar Company. The company based in England, is now renowned for producing some of the most luxurious cars and some of the most beautiful to. The company’s logo can be seen on the XK150, the most famous E-Type or the more recent Jaguar XK.
So what happened when the two met? Introducing the Bertone Jaguar B99 Concept…
The design team from Bertone, led by Mike Robinson, Bertone Brand an Design Director, came up with a four-door sedan, that takes it’s line straight from the views over the big jaguar cat of the ancient Aztec and Maya cultures.
The big cat doesn’t resemble the usual fast car with the bent nose, but a more unusual and robust design that reminds of the silent, fast and extremely agile feline. Inside that quiet body lie a two, combined electric engines system, called Extended Range Hybrid, capable of developing 427kW.
This design is set to express exactly what the car is all about, a fearless predator, waiting for the next road as for his next victim.
