Ian Callum, Jaguar, at the 2009 Detroit auto show

North American International Auto Show (NAIAS), Detroit, MI – Ian Callum is the chief designer for Jaguar, and he always makes time to sit down and have a chat with me. This time we are meeting at the 2009 Detroit auto show.

I asked Callum about the new Jaguar XFR design, and what it was like to work for India’s TATA Corporation, the new owners of Jaguar and LandRover.
