The later acquired "trademark" requirement to house a spare wheel between the front wheel arch and the door may have something to do with that.

I've noticed on other cars that an extended scuttle in front of the windscreen looks odd.

What about a OSI 20m ts(ford).they have a mix of designs in one car. Can you name them. I saw a bit of Alfa and Ferrari

How about a Mercedes Maybach Vision 6 using a Jag or Mercedes SL as a base.

On an XJS ?

Like the side window. And the roof flowing into the boot . Very sleek.

Never seen that before but I really like it. AM are pretty hot on the use of their mouth shape so maybe a non starter for Chris but can see the possibility of someone making a really nice car out of that.

Leatherseat 3rd September 2016 21:23

That is very sexy. Tempting...

Tell them it is a Ford mouth, they look almost the same now:rofl:

True. I had a ford fiesta grill not sure if Chris still has it. Could probably slot in quite nicely. And if jaguar lights were used from a xk8 it would be too far from the swooping mustache shape they have. Also some Toyota celica tailights look nice possibly a mk5 the one where they did the convertible.

Jaguartvr 4th September 2016 07:44

It would be ideal for Chris or Dan, a few modifications and it would be a great kit for Scimitar owners and of course no IVA, and then there would be the convertible version!

Tell us more. I like it.

Ollie 5th September 2016 08:18

Yep....very pretty and balanced....tell us more #2....

The car was a one off, chassis is a full space frame, engine is an early Alfa Montreal V8, gearbox is Renault UN1 with most of the body missing. But it had registration history. So ineffect I started again.
It was never intended to be a replica of any thing I would be interested in what your thoughts are as to what it looks like.
I am considering reducing the height of the spoiler.
