Jaguar hopes that the Advanced Lightweight Coupe could herald a new generation of stunning Jaguar sports cars and sports sedans.

"The Advanced Lightweight Coupe represents the very essence of Jaguar, its heart and soul. If you want to know what lies ahead for us, what direction we will take ? this is Jaguar's answer."

According to Jaguar the concept hints at what to expect of the next generation of Jaguar cars, which like this 2+2 show car, will have purposeful and seductive exteriors that bring Jaguar design firmly into the 21st century.

The Advanced Lightweight Coupe benefits from Jaguar's advanced lightweight aluminum architecture technology that was introduced with the new XJ saloon.
