Performance wise this car is impressive. Style wise, I don\'t know. I definately see the grill as an homage to the Series 1 XJ-6 of 1968 vintage, however the rest of the car is an Ian Callum creation that will have to be pondered over for awhile to decide if one likes it. I guess that is the price one pays for seeking an original new design without using many familiar themes from the past. At this point, I still prefer the classic Jaguar lines with long sleek cat-like elegance. I will have to take a long look at one of these in person, I have only seen one or two traveling at highway speed (fast and brief glimpse).
