Land Rover Transparent Bonnet concept lets you see what’s under the car

Land Rover has unveiled a new concept system that makes the hood of the car see through so that the driver can see what is under the car and out of their line of sight. The tech is called the Transparent Bonnet concept and provides a full view of what is under and in front of the car, so drivers can see hidden obstacles. Land Rover says that the transparent bonnet system is part of a suite of concept tech being showcased in the Discovery Vision Concept car at the New York International Motor Show.

Jaguar C-X17 demos lightweight aluminum unibody architecture for future models

With the reveal of the Jaguar C-X17, the company has demonstrated the capabilities of their next-generation advanced aluminum unibody architecture. While it's been suggested that a release of the C-X17 in the consumer market is "prett feasible", Jaguar has made it clear that the lightweight architecture inside this beast is, indeed, ready to be featured in a real market-ready automobile. The first time consumers will see a vehicle on the market with Jaguar's new architecture will be inside 2015, with a North American launch in 2016, and the vehicle itself will be a mid-size premium C/D segment sedan.

Jaguar C-X17 revealed: “pretty feasible” for market release

The concept vehicle known as Jaguar C-X17 has been revealed in full today in Frankfurt - not as a production car, mind you, but as a concept that may very well see production in the near future. This is the first time Jaguar has launched into the CUV/SUV territory, and they've done so keeping the Jaguar design language from start to finish. This is thanks in a large way to Jaguar Design Director Ian Callum.

Jaguar Project 7 crafts one-off single-seater racer from F-Type

Jaguar Project 7 crafts one-off single-seater racer from F-Type

Jaguar's F-Type is arguably enough sports car for most, but that hasn't stopped the British big cat company from crafting a one-off, single seater racer variant, Jaguar Project 7, to take to the track at Goodwood this year. Described as a "project study" led by Jaguar Director of Design Ian Callum, Project 7 re-clads the F-Type in a new aluminum body with a bespoke carbon-fiber aero-kit, borrowing stylistic hints from the classic D-type, but throwing a 5.0-liter supercharged V8 engine tuned for 550 PS and 0-60 mph in 4.1 seconds.

Jaguar F-Type coupe unofficially previewed (but you’ll have to wait until 2014)

Jaguar F-Type coupe unofficially previewed (but you’ll have to wait until 2014)

Jaguar's striking F-Type may already be wowing drivers as a convertible months out from launch, but it's taken some premature patent digging to see exactly what the eventual coupe version might look like. The car company has previously conceded that a hard-top F-Type will eventually reach forecourts, but has played it coy on how close to the original C-X16 concept it might be. Fortunately for us, while Jaguar's designers may be tight-lipped, its lawyers are a little more open.

Jaguar stokes F-Type Desire with Ridley Scott mini-movie

It's been a while since we talked about Jaguar's short film called Desire. The first time Jaguar talked about its short film, which is basically an extended commercial for its new F-Type, was back in November of 2012. At the time, all we knew was that the movie will prominently feature the new F-Type and actor Damian Lewis.
