LUCE - the dawn of a new era - the Luce is the new model in the Jaguar fleet by Pilato
From the European leader in the production of hearses, a new model adds lustre to the Pilato Group’s exclusive Jaguar fleet. We are proud to WORLD PREVIEW the extraordinary LUCE.
The Luce is the new model in the Jaguar fleet by Pilato
Created on a Jaguar F-Pace base, this is Pilato’s first entry into the Sport Utility Vehicle class. With its harmonious proportions and original sculpted forms, it is the ultimate expression of Jaguar's combination of strength and elegance.
Built in full compliance with Jaguar's high quality and safety standards and with all the care that makes Pilato products outstanding, the LUCE is destined to meet every operational need and handle the most testing road conditions.
THE LUCE PROJECT: A DELICATE PLAY OF BALANCE AND PROPORTION
The aim of the Pilato designers right from the initial design approach was to correctly interpret the original proportions of the F-Pace, Jaguar's Sport Utility Vehicle. The longer wheelbase forced us to go for a robust rear wheel arch that has the effect of accentuating the dynamic momentum of the beltline while at the same time reinterpreting its original aesthetic imprint.
Without revolutionising the vehicle’s original design, the designers opted for a flowing line that drops down from the base of the windscreen to the tail of the vehicle, there joining up with the generous rear spoiler to create sides of great impact. And it is here that Pilato really stands out with its powerful interpretation of the sides and the introduction of an innovative decorative element in the form of an arch that optically separates the cockpit from the funeral compartment and partially frames the glazing.
Luce - distinctveness
The generous side glazing joins seamlessly up with the tailgate window, effectively concealing the unsightly and outdated visible upright. The tailgate slopes steeply and is of wrapround design for the first time, as well as being completely glazed - something that now distinguishes all Pilato vehicles.
All this lends further dynamism to the whole, and better visibility and greater brightness to the funeral compartment.
