wow...beautiful! my only criticisms are that awful metal console inside and perhaps the tires are a tad too low profile to suit that wheel style...but still...absolutely stunning

I love that. The glass is very reminiscent of the George Harrison DB5 that has just been auctioned.

Other than the angle of the photo I see no similarities whatsoever?

Both gorgeous though.

That is simply the most gorgeous looking car I've seen in a very long time. It needs a Cat badge on the front grille not an "L" . If it gets built it will be selling in ten years time for as much as the asking price for a new one. Just look at the price of old E Types now!

Now there is a car that makes me wish i'd spent my life trying even harder!
And I love the interior as much as i do the exterior.

Totally bemusing. If you've got a rusty e type, an angle grinder and some filler I guess this could be considered a reasonable reworking of an old favourite (not one of mine though, as a kid I always thought the e looked obscene).

There are normally 10 or so XJ220's at the back of our factory. Now they are still one of the most beautiful cars I've ever seen. If the design studio that dreamt this up ever see a real one, they'll have a heart attack.

This looks like an e-type crossed with a latter-day Aston Martin, with finishing touches by Nissan. I think the design will date very quickly. Bet handles like a pig too.

Where do they get these prices from ?

It's one thing dreaming and being prepared to spend the £500K you haven't got and another actually writing the cheque.

If you had won £1million would you honestly spend it on one car, bet you wouldn't

Now that's what Jaguar should be building!!! Truly dream-car worthy. Price is a bit high, but then this is a bespoke car, and quite a bit more exclusive than an XK-RS.

I think this is the best "retro" car design since Ford's GT.

Looks lovely, except for the "Lyonheart' across the dash and, from what I can make out, the bottom of the rear hatch. That name does absolutely nothing for me!

You're getting the XC-16 & XC-75 soon. There's no pleasing some people!!

I agree. I'm assuming it's an homage to Sir William Lyons, the founder of Jaguar.

I'll believe them when they're sitting on the showroom floor. Jag have a history of showing stunning concepts and then not building them.

As far as the second comment, I'm very pleased with the current Jag line up. The XF and XJ are fantastic. To me, the current XK is a bit fussy, but I wouldn't turn one away. Sorry if it came off otherwise.

That may well be the case! Shame then that the lettering looks so tacky and Lyonheart sounds like a kit car name, not befitting of a car costing this much!

Fantastic car,but reminds me more of a Toyota 2000 GT than E type.
That's what I was thinking, however:

Remember seeing this on Top Gear. I think they got the Hint that 'Growler' may not be a very good name hehe Looks stunning, but I prefer it with double headlamps, I think it looks much more classy. Interior looks nice except for the centre console, too shiny imo. Biggest problem is pricetag, too expensive, not that i'll be able to afford one anyway frown Engine sounds exciting, 550 bhp and 500lb ft torque nutslick

Which front do you like?
