Jaguar XF 10 by Fuore Design
The FUORE DESIGN team, above all Erwin Himmel, have developed a racy sports car: driven by the sporting spectacle of the Grand Prix world, and the great English make’s traditional values. The XF 10’s presence leaves no room for doubt: Surrounded by the scent of Formula One. A two-seater, given, but unmistakably demanding nonetheless.
Pure power, dynamism added, exclusively clothed: a creation that is perfect for the exclusive followers of fast and beautiful legends.
The X is a tribute to the legendary two-seaters that made their way from Coventry to the most beautiful boulevards of the world in the 50’s. The F points to the idea’s origins– Formula One, and the concluding 10 is a reference to the car’s 10 cylinders – the configuration of the engine common to Formula One.
Erwin Himmel, initiator of the XF 10 design study, was fully aware of the goal before even the first stroke: “The technical nature of Formula One had to find clear expression in the form of the car and be accentuated through unmistakable performance. Also: Performance that builds on a history of success is much more credible. It is a virtue that also implies the highest demands on safety. With the XF 10 we have designed ourselves a dream car.”
The XF 10, a two-seated sports car equipped with a 10-cylinder engine, 4 valves/cylinder, DOHC, 7000 cc and 640 HP, raises expectations with excellent projected performance data: 0 to 62 mp/h in 3.8 seconds. Top speeds should lie at around 210 mp/h, should speed not be limited.
