The front end looks smashing, while the rear looks almost concept car-ish. Futuristic alright, if a little confused.

The car would look great with body coloured C pillars. A quick photoshop could reveal that.

The Jaguar badge on the boot looks really out of place. Looks like a Puma logo to me

I think it's one of the best interiors i have ever seen. Just look at those AC vents..gorgeous! This car is surely one of the most beautiful cars in the world! No doubt, Ian Callum is behind it.

After all the cliched Mercedes S' and BMW 7's, this is something that's probably going to make potential future S and 7 buyers change their minds!!!

Besides, IMO the latest 7-series looks dead ugly (the grille especially which makes a grand car like that look like an adult with rabbit-teeth).

the new jaguar XJ's behind looks quite similar to TATA prima concept which was showcased a few months back at geneva motor show.

by the way they could have integrated the exhausts better in new XJ.

Other than the colour of the car, I don't see any similarity. Everything is poles apart... the rake of the rear windscreen, the C pillars, the layout of the trunk, the lights...

I don't see it...

This car looks cool. However, i feel they could have lifted the rear side rather than sloping it down.

Yeah, looks like it was 'inspired' by the Citroen C6.
