New Jaguar XK Concept Coming to Paris

Jaguar is celebrating its 75th anniversary this year, with the British company continuing to come with new birthday presents for itself.The next celebration for the Cat’s 75th anniversary is a concept based on the XK coupe, which is scheduled to be unveiled at the 2010 Paris Auto Show, as Insideline reports.

The concept is expected to reveal the next step in the company’s design language, showing us the direction that will be followed by the future Jaguar vehicles.

Jaguar has now left the retro-only look behind, with the company being keen to evolve. This is why the concept will come to continue the transformation started by the automaker’s recent models. In addition to that, the concept will come with a front grille that will become a signature for future Jaguar sports cars.

Jaguar will introduce a new generation for the XK Coupe and Roadster in 2012, but the upcoming concept won’t offer two many hints about the aforementioned vehicles, being used a support for demonstrating the company’s general trends and not as a XK model preview.

However, the design study is expected to come in a larger size than the current XK, a move that will also be used by the next XK. This will lead to an increase in the interior space that will allow the vehicle to offer an improved space for rear passengers. The XK will also move upmarket, making room for the XE small sports car that is expected to be presented at next year’s Geneva Auto Show.

autoevolution will be attending the 2010 Paris Auto Show, so stay tuned for some real up close and personal shots of the vehicles, as well as for first-hand details of the motorized contraptions presented at the event.
