The name Ian Callum is synonymous with gorgeous and sensuous cars. Does the Aston Martin DB7 spark your imagination? He did that.
Nearly ten years after the DB7, he directed Jaguar and Aston Martin design for a short period of time. In 2006, at Jaguar, he unleashed the car for which he is arguably most famous for: the Jaguar XK. Since then, he's helped turn the ailing "Leaping Jaguar" brand back into a desirable luxury make. One of the objects of desire in question is the Jaguar C-X16 Concept, which makes its Canadian premiere at the Toronto Auto Show.
Watch as our Anthony Horng interviews Ian Callum, Jaguar's Director of Design.
Lexington, KY - I've said it before and I'll say it a million times more: I'm a sucker for something built with a purpose. I don't care if it's a well-designed pair of jeans or a Porsche 911; if it's built to do something and it does that thing to the very best of its ability (and better than anyone else), and makes no allowances for that purpose or pretends to be anything else then all hail that product.
