I like it, but it needs more edginess. The nose is too "XE" and the tail is too "Mercedes".

Have you thought of taking the GORGEOUS Bertone B99 and envision what a new XJ could look like if someone fired Callum so as to prevent the next XJ from looking like a Merkur Scorpio revival?

My point being that Jaguar's sedans simply aren't visually exciting and therefore not worthy of the price of admission. What would they look like if they were styled to look like they were worth the price of admission?

Seems like an appropriate follow-up to the XJ coupes of the 70s.

Not a fan of the connection between the headlights and grill. The bumper is a nice touch and the overall shape is quite nice. I disagree and feel the rear is a nice desgn, not too complicated.

One thing I have noticed, the front rim is a bit small than the rear rim?

My first thought on that was BMW 3 series.
