Jaguar designer confirmed for XK65


This year’s XK65 event– which is already expected to be a record breaker – is set to be even more exciting now with the confirmed attendance of Jaguar’s design director Ian Callum on 8-9 June.

Booked to speak at the Luxembourg event’s dinner on Saturday night, Callum will join enthusiasts on the scenic drive earlier in the day behind the wheel of his latest creation – the F-Type.

Notable designs to Callum’s name include the Aston Martin DB7 and Vanquish, plus the latest Jaguar machines such as the XK, XF, XJ and the turbine-powered C-X75 concept.

XK Club founder Philip Porter said: “We are thrilled that Ian is joining us. He’s very much a part of the Jaguar success story today, but he also has huge respect for heritage, is absolutely fascinating on the subject of design and is passionate about his work.”

Interesting article. It's good to see Jaguar back. What I like about Ian is that he brings back the basic proportion of the cars and make them looking more modern. In the the new XJ, for example, he uses the basic proportions and all the things that people like on the old XJ and bring it back tot he new XJ with the modern design.
