Jaguar Consul is an autonomous coupe way ahead of its time

Jaguar is a brand synonym with style, masculinity and class that is definitive in the automotive realms. The luxury and performance combo of the Jaguar sports cars, the new F-Type in particular is exemplary. Taking design cues from 2020 F-Type, to shape the future of Jaguar sports cars that’ll be eco-conscious, the Jaguar Consul is a glimpse of things to come. Seasoned automotive designers Gregoire Mory and Hanchang Liu have pondered over the design of a Jaguar coupe thirty years down the line, and this is what it looks like.

Consul has the aerodynamic flowing lines, ever sharper than the current generation of Jaguar cars. In particular, the rear which flows from the front and seems to be stretched right up to the taillights. The rear end is so sharp you can virtually cut a slice with it! There is some semblance of the E-Type in the exterior design as well, and why not, it is one of the most iconic sets of wheels that Jaguar has envisioned. The autonomous coupe looks bold and intimidating up-front with sharply designed squinting LED headlights. From the sides, the car bears a very toned character with the wheel arches giving it a definitive road presence. Consul is made to go at high speeds with the encapsulated windshield design that gives the riders the sensation of whizzing through on the highway. To match the sporty look overall, there are gull-winged doors that open up to the back.

The interior of the Consul has an equally distinct setup with a four-person sitting configuration. Two at either side of one seating position which extends further back. The extreme left position is equipped with a steering wheel, just in case you feel the urge to drive the car. The fourth position is right where the dashboard would be, facing the other three passengers. All the sitting configurations have a laid-back setup for the ultimate comfort. The car design is quite practical and with a bit of more inputs could see daylight in the coming years.
