While I like the current XK Jag and have mixed feelings about retro design I have long felt the world needs a modern interpretation of the E-Type. This was my attempt – an unfinished project.
I designed and modelled this back in 2008 when I was doing the Carsguide website for News Ltd.
Carsguide, like every other significant magazine and auto website ran a Car of the Year. I modeled this as a base for an animation of a reveal of the winner. The car was a generic representation of a prestige sports coupe with references of an XF Jag, BMW 6 and Alfa Brera.
The animation used a cloth simulation of a draped cloth that was pulled away to reveal the COTY winner.
