This is how a small Jaguar saloon could look, if Bertone had anything to do with it.
Dubbed the ‘B99’, the famed Italian design house has built this stunning concept for Jag, set to debut at next month’s Geneva motor show.
As you can see, it borrows heavily from Jaguar’s past heritage; Bertone said the B99 ‘projects Jaguar’s classic style into the future with elegance’. It measures up to around the same size as BMW’s Three - though a bit lower - and uses a hybrid ‘long-range’ power system tuned by Bertone Energy.
The B99’s innards are swathed in ‘soft’ Italian leather, brushed aluminium and high-gloss African wood.
Bertone has also built a full GT2 race version of the B99 that will sit alongside the saloon at the Geneva show.
We’ll be on the show floor and will scurry information back to you via the medium of Web. Stay tuned…
