NEWS & EVENTS JAGUAR’S FIRST FAMILY SPORTS CAR F-PACE READY FOR 2016 The next Jaguar model – the first family-focused sports car in the brand’s long history – will be called the F-PACE. The development testing programme is already underway and the vehicle is due to go on sale in mid-2016. The F-PACE is based on the C-X17 concept car (pictured), which had its world preview at the Frankfurt motorshow in 2013. Acclaimed for its mix of great proportions and impressive lightweight aluminium construction, its production future was soon assured, as Ian Callum, Jaguar director of design, said: “We received such an overwhelmingly positive response to the C-X17 that we just had to make it a reality. The new model, inspired by the F-TYPE, couples class-leading interior space and exceptional on-road dynamics with five-seat usability to produce a true performance crossover.” Speaking at the Detroit motorshow in January, Andy Goss, Jaguar’s director of global sales operations, added: “2015 is Jaguar’s 80th year and we’re celebrating it by announcing our first performance crossover which we consider to be the ultimate practical sports car.” The F-PACE will be made in Solihull, UK. DYNAMIC CONCEPT The Jaguar C-X17 concept car presented in 2013 was the springboard for the newly announced Jaguar family sports car F-PACE 72 j THE DYNAMIC ISSUE
HOW LEGENDARY SET DESIGNER KEN ADAM BROUGHT JAGUAR INTO THE BOND WORLD REACH FOR THE MOON Top: Adam’s sketch for the Bond movie Moonraker (1979). Above: Jaguar’s hi-tech C-X75 concept car. Left: Ken Adam with his wife Letizia Moauro and their E-Type in London in 1964 VERY MUCH LARGER THAN LIFE PHOTOGRAPHY: DEUTSCHE KINEMATHEK – KEN ADAMS ARCHIV (2); PR (4) Spectacular driving and flying objects, futuristic command centres and cathedrals of evil: this is the world of secret agent 007, created in large part by British production designer and film architect, Sir Ken Adam and celebrated in a new exhibition called Bigger Than Life at the Berlin-based film museum, Deutsche Kinemathek. Born Klaus Hugo Adam as a Jew in Berlin, Adam emigrated to England in 1934. The exhibition traces his extraordinary life and work with drawings, models, and pictures of more than 70 of his films including classics like Dr. Strangelove (1964) and seven Bond films, starting with Dr. No (1962) to Diamonds Are Forever (1971) and Moonraker (1979). Adam, who studied architecture, began by designing innovative and influential sets, then went on to create vehicles, weapons, and the legendary 007 gadgets. His private car of the mid-60s – plus experience in the Royal Air Force in WWII – gave him important inspiration for Bond’s gadget-laden vehicles too. “I was one of the first guys in London to buy a Jaguar E-Type,” he recalls. “Many stared, but some also resented and when it was parked it often got damaged. I got angry, so came up with the idea of creating a car that could defend itself.” Adam’s red Jaguar E-Type even had a part in a scene from the classic Sean Connery movie Thunderball (1965). Although historically Jaguars tend to be driven by charismatic villains in the 007 series franchise, in the current Bond era – in Skyfall (2012) for example – an XJ is used as a command centre for head of the secret service M. Jaguar’s hi-tech C-X75 concept car is set to feature in the 24th Bond film Spectre too, in a gripping car chase through Rome. When the film opens in theatres November 6th, no doubt Sir Ken Adam, who remains a passionate Jaguar fan and drives even at the age of 94, will want to be in the front row and see if the props are up to scratch. Bigger Than Life. Ken Adam’s Film Design runs until May 17th at Berlin’s film museum Deutsche Kinemathek, deutsche-kinemathek.de; or try the book, published by Kerber in German and English for €39.95 THE DYNAMIC ISSUE j 73
