Jaguar Advanced Lightweight Coupe was a sports coupe concept car first shown at the 2005 North American International Auto Show in Detroit by the British car manufacturer Jaguar, then part of Ford's Premier Automotive Group.

Designed by Ian Callum, the concept previewed the look of the Jaguar XK[1] which was subsequently launched at the autumn 2005 Frankfurt Motor Show. The design includes a rear hatchback rather than the previous XK8's traditional boot.[2]

Powered by a supercharged 4.2-litre V8 engine and is equipped with computer active technology suspension and active restraint technology system. Jaguar claims the concept can reach sixty miles per hour in five seconds from a standstill, and that it has a top speed of 160 mph.[3]
