Jaguar C-X16 Clay Model comes to Life

Modellers will be working on a full size model to reveal the artistry involved

Jaguar UK has chosen Clerkenwell Design Week to showcase the one-off C-X16 concept car, but not as you may expect. Skilled clay modellers will be working on a full size model to reveal the artistry involved in sculpting the cars of the future.

Julian Thomson, Advanced Design Director, Jaguar Cars, said: "Jaguar is one of the most technologically advanced companies in the field of product development but we still believe in the sense of artistry. Emotional connections are at the heart of our vehicles and the traditional process of working with clay with some of the best sculptors in the world allows us to refine them into the purest surfaces."

Joining the C-X16 clay model at the London event are three bespoke sculptures that show the past, present and future of Jaguar. Commissioned by Julian Thomson and painted by two designers from the Jaguar design team the artwork is based on the bonnets of an E-type, C-X16 and C-X75.

Just as the specially created creations span Jaguar's ages, so too do the vehicles on display. The XJ13, created in 1966 and the only one in the world, is joined by an XFR and XKR-S. Designed, engineered and built in the UK, both modern cars demonstrate the very best in British creativity and industry-leading engineering.

Clerkenwell design week runs in London from the 22nd to the 24th of May 2012. The Jaguar C-X16 clay model, XFR, XKR-S, XJ13 and Jaguar sculptures are all located in the Farmiloe Building.
