James Brooks-Ward said: “We’re proud to sponsor this year’s Scottish Car of the Year awards, and we’re thrilled to be able to hand this award for design and innovation to proud Scot, Ian Callum. It’s a fitting beginning to our Scottish journey, which will end with our 2015 Concours of Elegance in the grounds of the Palace of Holyroodhouse from September 4-6.”
Ian Callum said: “I am extremely proud of what the Design team has achieved with the XE. It looks fast and its design is extremely seductive, which is a formidable combination together with the innovative engineering that features throughout the XE.”
