Ian Callum’s Dream Garage

The design director who transformed the shape of jaguars over 20 years, on the cars that really rock his world

FERRARI 250 GT SWB

I’ve always loved the dynamic visual quality of this car. It’s so expressive, full of visual energy and its proportions are perfect. It’s not the most beautiful car in the world, but it is the most spontaneous – as if it’s simply been drawn and there’s been no loss of its purity through the engineering process. It looks like it’s about to leap at you.

JAGUAR F-TYPE

We worked hard to create a worthy successor to the E-Type. It captures the confident stance of a modern Jaguar while giving a nod to Jag’s exotic past. Sports cars are about wrapping the sheet metal as tight to the mechanicals as is physically possible, and the F-Type does just that. Its plan view changes dramatically as you walk around it.

Ford MODEL B COUPE

I fell in love with hot rods as a kid, especially the Model B. They were rebellious, fast, simple and exciting. A chopped Ford ’32 is one of the most exaggerated but handsome silhouettes on wheels. Its stance is perfect. The cabin tapers at the bottom to mould around two occupants. Side on, the grille’s vertical line almost runs straight through the wheel centres.
