Karthik H, A bit of a car freak and a bike nut, and a fan of trucks and technology too. Expect sharp stories that focus on those four fronts. As always, stay tuned to for quick and unassuming updates from across the world.

Jaguar’s C-X17 sports crossover concept vehicle was displayed at the Brussels Motor Show 2014, featuring a new ‘Italian Racing Red’ exterior colour.

Created as a design study to introduce Jaguar’s all-new Aluminium architecture, the C-X17 concept was first showcased at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show. The C-X17 is built on an aluminium monocoque architecture which Jaguar say is lightweight, extremely stiff and will form the basis for a new range of future Jaguars, the first product of which will be a mid-size premium sedan set to go on sale in 2015.

The interior of the C-X17 crossover concept was refreshed at the Dubai Motor Show last year, featuring bucket seats, a sculted panaromic roof, jet saddle leather and orchid leather panels for two-tone contrast and a smooth interactive surface console that runs through the centre console from the dashboard to the rear and controls everything from the electronics to the car’s climate system for the front and the rear. The centre console is made up of multiple touch screens that each individual passenger can use to connect with another via wi-fi or through social networks.
