Bertone Ascot 1977

The Italian styling house Bertone, presented a Jaguar proposal in 1977. The Ascot was based on the Jaguar XJ-S, and borrowed heavily from the style of Bertone Ferrari-based 308GT Rainbow from the previous year. Thankfully the design was not adopted as it would not have looked out of place in the science fiction series "Space 1999"
