Jaguar B99 (Bertone) (2011)
The overall length of the prototype is 4.5 meters, width – 1.95 meters, and height – 1.35 meters. The design of the car, made in the style of the classic Jaguar XJ, uses hinged doors that open towards each other, with the rear ones being made almost half the size of the front ones. So far, all that is known about the power plant of the concept Jaguar is that it is hybrid and, according to Bertone representatives, provides a “large range.”
The last time concept Jaguars, designed by Bertone and called Pirana and Ascot, were shown in 1967 and 1977.
The Bertone studio presented its previous development last year at the Geneva Motor Show. The prototype, called Alfa Romeo Pandion, was built to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Italian automaker. One of the features of the concept car was the huge doors, each 3.6 meters long, which rose upward at an angle of up to 90 degrees and were actually the side parts of the body.
