The idea of using any image to make a specific car comes up now and then when I do the "what could we do different" threads so here is your chance to make any image you like into your interpretation of the 2010 Jaguar XJ.

So we don't have to make it look at all what the final car will look like?

You can use as many cues from the existing Jaguar range or the teaser photograph as you like.

Can use any photograph of any car at any angle to create your personal fantasy XJ.

Might be useful to use some cues from the teaser pic but it's not vital.

Get creative!

Can you make more shops? The front and the back or only the front or only the back?

How about I say if you want you can do two chops, but you must put them both in a single 1600x1200 image?

Of course people with less time can just do the standard one chop although when it comes to voting they may receive less points.

Hmm thats very interesting S2, I think the rear pillar could well be pretty much spot on.

The line between the chrome and rear of the roof does look quite like the teaser pic although I think it makes the side window look like it has an odd inward curve (that makes next to no sense).

I have however been told that the final car won't have a "Bangle butt" which I see you've done very subtly.

A nice interesting chop to start the contest. :)

EDIT: Jaguar have a nice public access media site (http://www.jaguarperformance.com/) with lots of nice big pics of the XFR and XKR should anyone wish to use them.

Here's mine.

Not a huge amount of time to work on it again (I was in training all week), or otherwise I would have gone a little crazier in the front bumper area.

I tried to ape the spy photos as much as I could. Unfortunetly the teaser image threw me (I'm quite sure I won't like this weird new roofline with the rear window morphing into the side windows but not at the same time).

So anyway I stuck with what I saw under the camo. Nothing extreme - hope it's not too boring. But from the spy photos I'm not sure the new XJ will be the looker the XF is.

Basically I grafted an XF nose onto a Quattroporte (specificially the Touring version made by some coachworks company I can't remember at the moment). I spliced together the Jag and Quattroporte rooflines, and also shortened the roof get more of a big Jag stance. I also lowered it to the ground - the Quattroporte had a bit of a 4x4 stance. Up front I reshaped the headlights, and made the grille much wider and more upright. I also enlarged the central air intake on the bottom of the front bumper. I brought it up so it matched the height of the two that flank it. I also added more of a booty onto the end of the car.

Indeed - nicely done. That's how I envision the tails.

I like it, but at the same time it's more work. I don't think I'd ever have time for front AND rear views.

Can people PM me some images too? Still had not one sent to me and I have none left to choose from so I need your suggestions.
