I love it when I see something that started out cool end up being something equally cool in its afterlife. This Jaguar reborn as a bookshelf definitely fits that bill.
The sedan did have some major modifications done to make it bookshelf-worthy. First the designers had to remove the engine to cut down on the weight (and presumably smell and dirt). Next, they cut a large rectangle in roof to allow for the creation of shelving.
The designers even turned the trunk into cabinet space that I could envision being a great little bar set up.
Dutch design studio denieuwegeneratie is the firm behind the Jag bookshelf. They created it as part of the interiors for a project they call "Dutch Mountain" — an eco-friendly house built halfway into a hill, with a jutting roof that creates a mini-mountain.
Since bringing autos inside or turning them into art seems to be a trend, the only question that remains is whether a Jag bookshelf is more respectable than that Porsche 911 TV set up we reported on a while back.
