Just over three years later (no client rushing them), a memorial headstone designed collaboratively by Wilson's long-term associates Peter Saville (Joy Division cover designer) and Ben Kelly with Paul Barnes and Matt Robertson, was unveiled in The Southern Cemetery in Chorlton-Cum-Hardy, Manchester.
The black granite headstone carries a quote chosen by Wilson's family from The Manchester Man, the 1876 novel by Mrs G Linnaeus Banks (aka Isabella Varley Banks), the story of one Jabez Clegg and his life in Victorian Manchester.
The quote is set in Rotis by typographer Matt Robertson.
If you outlive me friends, I'll have 'Relentless noticer/Knowledge synthesizer' on my black granite please. No punctuation. Konsens Regular.
In celebration of the brand’s 75th anniversary, Jaguar took the wraps off its C-X75 concept car at the 2010 Paris Motor Show.
The Jaguar C-X75, which is a range-extended electric sports car, is intended to gives us a look into the company’s future design philosophy, which calls for the production of beautiful, faster and greener cars.
As a range extended EV, the C-X75 is powered by four 195-hp electric motors—one for each wheel—for a combined output of 780-hp and 1,180 lb ft of torque.
With just the lithium-ion batteries in use, the concept has a range of 68 miles. After the batteries runs out, the C-X75 uses two gas engines (that produce a combined 188 HP) to extend the range to 560 miles.
Mated to a single-speed transmission, the Jaguar C-X75 goes from 0-62 mph in 3.4 seconds with a top speed of 205 mph.
