MAHWAH, N.J., September 15, 2011 – Jaguar Land Rover displayed its global product leadership and brand strength by winning two of the most important media awards, from Autoweek, at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show, one for each brand, Jaguar and Land Rover.
Autoweek's editorial team selected the Jaguar C-X16 as its "Best in Show" winner and the Land Rover DC100 Sport as its "Best Concept" at the premier European motor show.
"Winning two of the top media awards in our industry here at the Frankfurt Motor Show is a tremendous achievement for the Jaguar and Land Rover brands, said Frank Klaas, Global Head of Communications, Jaguar Land Rover. "This recognition from the editors at Autoweek confirms the strength of design and engineering at Jaguar and Land Rover and the momentum we have at JLR."
The Jaguar C-X16 is a concept ‘One plus One’ (2 seat) sports car that explores future performance hybrid options via an innovative supercharged 3.0-liter V6 producing 375HP (280kW) and 332 lb-ft of torque. The production concept's seductive looks indicate the next evolution of Jaguar’s bold design direction.
“The C-X16 is our compelling vision for a 21st century Jaguar sports car. It embodies the established Jaguar strengths of sensual design, animal-like agility and inspirational performance and combines these with attributes that set us on a course to create sustainable sports cars of the future.”
-Adrian Hallmark, Global Brand Director, Jaguar Cars
"Jaguar's Design Director, Ian Callum, has done it again with the Jaguar C-X16 Concept," said Wes Raynal, Editor, Autoweek. "With its long hood and beautiful curves, the C-X16 has unmistakable Jaguar presence. This is Callum’s second-straight "Best in Show" award from an International show, as his C-X75 Concept won at the Geneva Motor show this past spring. He’s on a roll and we truly love this car.”
