Frankfurt Motor Show: Jaguar C-X17 concept

Anything we can imagine, we can create: Jaguar. 


65th Internatonal Frankfurt Motor Show (September 10, 2013 to September 22, 2013) will serve for Jaguar as a platform for the newC-X17 design study which will introduce Jaguar’s new, highly-advanced, modular aluminium architecture.

C-X17 concept illustrates the diversity of vehicles that could be produced using this architecture, which underpins the innovative future of the Jaguar brand. The luxury automotive brand will also display its newly introduced production models. These will include the recently launched ‘R’ performance models – the XJR and XFR-S – as well as the XF Sportbrake and highly-acclaimed F- TYPE.

The 65th IAA Cars will be characterised by two strategically important technological innovation topics: electric mobility and connected cars. These two technology drivers will not only be visible at the exhibitors’ stands, but will also receive detailed treatment at two one-day IAA symposium.

At the IAA 2013 the “Special show of historic vehicles” is presenting cars premiered at the IAA in 1983 – under the slogan “The stars of 1983 – where are they now?” Today the vehicles on display are 30 years old and therefore can be registered as historic vehicles for the first time, as long as they are in their original condition with no technical defects.

The historic vehicle stand in Hall 3.1 covers approx. 1,000 square metres. It will showcase 18 exhibits including everyday cars, e.g. the Golf II, the BMW 524td and the Mercedes 190, but also sports cars such as an Audi Sport quattro and a Porsche 959 – which were expensive then and still are today.
