The article focuses on Jaguar XK8, a crisp reflection of Detroit, Michigan show car. XK8 is close to the concept Advanced Lightweight Coupe shown at the Detroit. The concept's wraparound headlights, sweeping roofline, taut stance and hatchback trunk are all production characteristics. The concept's name tells how revolutionary this new XK8 is for the ultra-traditional British automaker. It is designer Ian Callum's first complete car for Jaguar. His work blends old and new into a handsome, classic shape that is neither overly traditional nor trendy.
