Bertone Jaguar B99 Concept Leaked, Previews Smaller Jaguar Sedan

Follow Nelson

The leaks are upon us, and the Geneva Motor Show is still weeks away. Today's product of the leaky dam: a Bertone concept study called the Jaguar B99.

It could preview a new, smaller sedan from Jaguar, though it's clearly more concept than production at this pont. The suicide rear doors, for example, won't make the production cut, and the complete lack of a B-pillar won't work for side-impact or roof strength standards.

Nonetheless, the overal outline and styling cues seen at front and rear could give us an idea of what an X-Type replacement might look like, in a general sense. And what we see, we like--mostly. The front fascia and tiny, slit-like headlights are a bit more catfish than cat.

We'll keep you posted, including live photos and full details straight from Geneva, once the car is officially unveiled.

  2. I am happy to Jaguar will suicide door full size. it was transition from 1960's Lincoln Continental suicide doors and 2003 Lincoln Continental concept to Jaguar. it will be new model to rival Porsche Panamera . I know Jaguar is real luxury brand. Jaguar has join to Mercedes Benz, BMW, Porsche, Maybach, Audi, Rolls Royce, Bentley, Land Rover , Lotus, Ferrari, Lamborghini , Maserati and Bugratti are real ultra luxury and sports highest performance. I know Cadillac, Lexus and Infiniti are good luxury . It is dumping to Lincoln brand near future.

  3. It is a fantastic looking car, and should do well to bring Jaguar to a new level in the motoring world.

  4. I love the curve of the 80's-90's in this concept! I hope they will make this car. One reason I don't like any concept cars are that they are made to show what the company can design but usually produce something totally opposite! So, here's to hoping this car is made.
