Jaguar introduced a bespoke version of the concept at the Guangzhou Motor Show late last year, featuring a special Liquid Gold colour scheme.

This time the company has gone for an Italian Racing Red layout. Other than that, the same sexy design remains.

The C-X17 rides on an all-new aluminium architecture. The platform will be used for a range of upcoming Jaguar models, the first of which will be its much-anticipated mid-size sedan BMW 3 Series rival due in 2015.

As for the concept, it is expected to spawn a production SUV – Jaguar’s first ever SUV – in the next few years. Jaguar said in a statement,

“The C-X17 concept is one example of the diversity of vehicles that could be produced using the modular, scalable new architecture.”
