Another sexy Geneva debut, the B99 is designed by Italian design firm Bertone in cooperation with Jaguar. The concept is meant to give us a look at the possible direction that Jaguar could take with a new small sedan that it is planning for 2013/2014.

Bertone sought to compact the dimensions of the sedan, while maintaining an equal weight distribution over the wheels. So, instead of designing a rear-oriented fastback, Bertone cut out the B-pillar and made reverse rear doors. This structure gives the B99-which is named for Bertone’s 99th anniversary-the shorter dimensions that Jaguar is looking for, with a look removed from fastback models like the XJ and XF.

Bertone design chief Mike Robinson said of the B99′s future: “After Geneva, if they like it, we hope to present our designs to Jaguar.” [via Autocar]
