    They need a new Jag XJ Coupe

    They need a new Jag XJ Coupe. I always like the XJ6C and XJ12C of the 1970's and think the styling of the new XJ cries out for a Coupe version....

    Very cool.

    MonaroSS could you eliminate the B pillar? I would love to see Jag have a coupe like Merc does without the post.

    While there are definite differences, I see a lot of Aston Martin in that coupe.

    Side note, this weekend was a big prom weekend here in town and I saw two 17 year old (??) kids driving an Aston Martin Vanquish in their tux and dress. Even if I had the ability to buy that car, no way in hell would I let my 17 year old kid take it to prom.
    Future Rides: Dodge Viper (hopefully someday) & 2009 Pontiac G8/ 2015 Chevrolet SS (seriously)

    I am really liking this! I absolutely love the XJ6C and would love to see a successor to it.

    I'm figuring it is the re-organization of the elements, but I can see a bit of a hip on the coupe, where I feel like it is lost on the sedan. Nice throwback to the subtle hip on the old coupes.

    I agree with Canuck, I think a pillarless design would be awesome, but I don't think it would be feasible. the rear window extends over the rear wheel, making it impossible to put it down all the way, which would take away from the dramatic effect that the pillarless design gives you.

    Looks great, Monaross! Actually a good idea. Might be a Bentley Continental beater at 1/3rd of the prize.
