2004 Fuore BlackJag

Fuore Blackjag

To celebrate their premiere appearance at the 74th Geneva Motor Show 2004, Fuore Design International has set loose a remarkable predator. BlackJag is an exhilarating design study that fuses the spirit of Formula One with the values of the traditional British brand.

BlackJag builds on the promise of its predecessor, the XF10 , presented at the Motor Show in the studio's native Barcelona one year ago. Driven by the sporting spectacle of the Grand Prix world it embodies thoroughbred glamour in a road-going sports car. While the XF10 was an expression of sheer sportiness and pure power, the BlackJag now presents itself in refined and sophisticated apparel.

The design has evolved to reflect the elegance and sovereignty of the legendary two-seaters from Coventry. “We wanted our XF10 to mature from a racy sports car to an elegant and sophisticated drive. BlackJag embraces design elements that inspire style and poise, maintaining the sporting image”, explains Erwin Himmel, creative force behind the BlackJag and CEO of Fuore Design.

The BlackJag´s body was generally simplified and smoothed out to lend the car distinctive elegance. To that end, changes were made to certain design elements of the XF10. The air intakes now run more smoothly into the body and hence are more in keeping with a sculptural flow. The front benefits from a new, simplified shut-line graphic on the front bumper. New headlamps now incorporate the BlackJag's fog lights, creating a more generous front-light graphic. Other changes include newly styled ergonomic wing mirrors, the omission of air intakes on the doors, and redesigned door handles. Finally, at the rear the exhaust pipes are better integrated.

Draped in elegant black, breathing life into subtle surface changes, this wild cat has matured into a refined representation of a longstanding tradition. “The name BlackJag inspires elegance, the value that formed the inspiration for our design study”, explains Erwin Himmel.


The BlackJag, a two-seater sports car conceived for a 10-cylinder engine, 4 valves/cylinder, DOHC, 7000 cc and 640 HP, raises expectations with excellent projected performance data: 0 to 62 mp/h in 3.8 seconds. Top speeds should lie at around 210 mp/h, if not restricted.

The dimensions: 4.55 metres long, 1.98 metres wide and 121 centimetres low. The total package weighs in at 1350 kg. BlackJag was conceived in Barcelona by Fuore Design and built in Turin by Modarte, in the capable hands of Stefano Ardagna, one of the most dynamic Italian prototype constructers, making it a truly European show car.
