Jaguar today released a sketch, but no details of its C-X16 production concept car. The C-X16 is set to debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show on Sept. 13.

According to Jaguar, the C-X16 was designed by the same team that produced the Jaguar XJ, XF and XK.

"Great Jaguars have always been beautiful, innovative and have looked firmly to the future," said Ian Callum, Jaguar director of design, in a press release. "The finished C-X16 concept has the potential to do these things while retaining the ability to surprise, to excite and invigorate."

Adrian Hallmark, global brand director for Jaguar Cars, said in the release, "Jaguar has set in place bold, ambitious plans for the future. This production concept demonstrates the depth of design and engineering ability we have within Jaguar to make these plans come to life--I look forward to sharing this latest, exciting step at the Frankfurt Motor Show."
