    Interesting. Doesn't look very usable but I like the idea that someone tried to make a modern XJS.

    All the best,
    Andrew.

    Looks to me like the fender treatment shape over the rear wheels is different on each side. (Left concave; right convex)

    I've been following all the running commentary in the F12/812 threads and am amazed at the amount of distain for the design. Yes, I guess everyone is indeed a designer.
    Certainly everyone is entitled to their opinions, but some of the commentary borders on the rude.
    But after 50 yrs in the 'biz' I'm used to it by now.:rolleyes:

    I think the Ferrari is not bad other than the rear end treatment. I wish for round taillights again!!! Roma combined with the original Daytona, with some of that white Bertone Alfa showcar(the last one) from a few year ago mixed in. I like the Roma and Daytona, but that blacked out area ruins the flow. I hope they option painted rear panels.

    This is SO much better as a drop top & in a darker colour that minimizes the black.
    I wonder if the U.S. version will have the brush aluminium nose.

    Like all new designs, I'd like to see the actual car 'in the tin' as it were.

    Headlights are Lamborghini Estoque like... what I dont like about the design is the hard lines that transition into a bubble rear fender.

    My take away is those who love the F12/812 dislike it, and vice versa.

    Ive always disliked the overly busy high school sketchpad look of both F12 and 812 so i prefer the 12Cs more sensuous line (except for some modern details)
