Given how the sedan market is imploding, this needed to be a sedan that broke the mold and caused a sensation in the way the Aston Martin Lagonda was a stunning expression of the 70s "Ital Design" look or the way the 1976 Seville caused heads to snap.
This is safe, dull, dated, and insufferably boring to look at. The current, about-to-be replaced S Class is more compelling to look at.
The Acura Precision Concept is the stylistic shot-in-the-arm remedy that the sedan world needs to rescue it from the styling doldrums ditto the Escala, ditto the Bertone B99. Too bad Acura, Cadillac, and Jaguar are too stupid to build them.
There is NO REASON that a Bentley must be thick and truck faced.
