Jaguar Ascot

Jaguar Ascot -

The Jaguar Ascot is a concept car which was built by Bertone in 1977. It is based on a Jaguar XJS.

Bertone had pioneered the wedge concept with the Lamborghini Countach, and they tried a similar approach with the XJS. The Ascot's body is made from hand-beaten aluminium panels and has a hatchback layout.

Its original colour was white, but at some point it was resprayed in gold. The car was fitted with a 5.3 litre V12 engine.

The Ascot's style was borrowed heavily from Bertone's Ferrari-based 308GT Rainbow from the previous year.
