Default JC Volant Concept

Thursday, October 6, 2005: The Volant Concept takes the new JC brand to new heights, another example of the company's no-nonsense sporting intentions.

Simple, clean design screams nothing but driving pleasure.

The Volant takes immense emphasis on its wheel arches, like the Vurig. Large fender flares with a central low-set body gives the Volant a low-slung, ground-hugging stance. As with the Vurig, wheel placement is key: all the way to the corners, no less. It's only natural that the large emphasized wheels are beautiful, sharp designs. At front are triangular headlamp/airdam combination motifs, with the trademark JC T-shape grille incorporated in design. The simple design pulls from the front, running smoothly to the back, interrupted only by an asymmetrical one-seat cockpit.

The Volant flies on the track.

Sporting a lightweight, no-nonsense body crafted of carbon fiber, the Volant is incredibly light yet incredibly stiff. The body is directly welded onto an aluminum chassis; parts of the chassis, such as the air intake and the interior frames, showcase the chassis. The stiff, light body, combined with the extreme wheel stance and a powerful 400 horsepower, 4.5.l turborcharged V8 engine underneath the expansive hood totally behind the front axis give the Volant amazing handling and blood-pounding speed.

The Volant Concept will be unveiled at the Tokyo Auto Show, alongside the production Vurig and Vurig R.

i just noticed that character line/body panel thingy that goes from the back all the way to the front, nice are there any styling cues hinting at future JCs?

subtle clues all around. the positioning of the flares, the side lines, taillamp shape, front shape.. just knocking out the shape of future JC's in general.

and, though it's offically a concept that won't be made into production, it does portend a future JC...
