Jaguar UK today announces an exciting partnership which will see the presentation of the technologically-advanced XF executive saloon car at WIRED2015. WIRED is recognised as the multimedia authority on the future, in print and digital.
Senior Jaguar executives Kevin Stride (XF Vehicle Line Director), Adam Hatton (Creative Director, Jaguar Exterior Design), Alister Whelan (Creative Director, Jaguar Interior Design) and Peter Virk (Head of Connected Technologies and Apps) will support the presentation of the all-new XF at WIRED. These experts from the Design and Engineering teams at Jaguar Land Rover will also feature in exclusive workshop sessions at the WIRED conference.
Chaired by WIRED UK Deputy Editor, Greg Williams, and supported by additional speakers from WIRED2015, two 30 minute thought-leadership sessions will cover topics designed to stimulate discussion and debate by experts in their field. The first session is scheduled for Thursday 15th: ‘Humanity in the digital age’, with the second scheduled for Friday 16th: ‘Integrated innovation: Car design and Engineering’. Both sessions will be filmed and published by Jaguar and WIRED at the event.
The appearance of the new XF will permit the opportunity to showcase ‘inherently innovative’ technologies including InControl Touch Pro (offering door-to-door navigation, seamless iOS and Android connectivity and Meridian digital surround sound – making the XF the most connected Jaguar to date), Jaguar Configurable Dynamics, All-Surface Progress Control (enabling smooth, effortless drive-away on low friction surfaces such as snow and ice), laser head-up display, autonomous emergency braking, adaptive cruise-control with queue-assist, lane keep-assist, intelligent speed limiter, semi-automated parking and much more.
Jaguar will also show, for the first time in the UK, the stunning C-X75 concept hypercar, which features in the new Bond adventure, SPECTRE. The 24th James Bond film, SPECTRE, sees Hinx (played by David Bautista), drive the C-X75 – the most advanced Jaguar ever created – through the moonlit streets of Rome.
