    Jaaag Mk XI



    I thought Jaaag could do with a Bentley Mulsanne/Rolling Ghost competitor...

    I really like the first version as it is very distinctive and to me looks like a logical extension of the Mark X.

    We need more experimentation in car design. People underestimate what the public, and they themselves, will get used to very quickly. I keep pointing to the 50's, 60's and early seventies where within a space of 25 years the public saw the greatest variations in car design ever, and this occurred every few years. And they not only got used to it they grew to crave change and new adventurous design.

    If you deprive the population of exciting changes in design in any field then their imagination stagnates and they stop taking a lifestyle purchase risk. They start buying to conform to a 'norm' and soon conservatism of design stops change in its tracks. A population unsure of change avoids non-conforming design, which then makes for a business failure for those who try to offer something new and its then a self-fulfilling fear; like we saw from the late 70's to the new millennium.

    Good job.

    You should do a two-tone version of the first pic to exaggerate that great juxtaposition of the downward side line with the upward lower window line...

    Thanks. That was my inspiration for the most-part. I tried to incorporate bits of old and new Jaaag, to give a semi-retro feel.

    I like retro-styled vehicles, because they give you the elegant lines of the old car, with the big alloys and other such novelties that you get with a new car. Win-win!

    I agree completely. I would say that the late 40's had some milestone designs too, though.
    The 1947 Cisitalia 202 was one of the first cars to have the front wings higher up than the bonnet/hood, with the headlamps faired in to the wings.
    And the 1948 Cadillacs had the first "fins" even if they were tiny be the standards of some later cars.

    I honestly can't think of any recent car that has made any design changes as pronounced as these.

    Case in point, the current Golf. It looks very much like the Golf from the early-nineties.

    Two-tone version (or is it three-tone? Do you count the pinstripe?)

    Yes. I like that. And it has something that many designs today don't have; the ability not to be mistaken, even by non-car-enthusiasts, for anything else...
