I actually loved the idea of the floating roof they had. It looks as if there is an unbroken line of glass from B-pillar to B-plilar, wrapping around the back light, interrupted only by the stylish, curved chrome C-pillar. The car is very sizable (and slab-sided) and needed something like to break up the visual weight of the car.
The problem is that, in-person and up close, it's clear the chrome C-pillar is an illusion, and the black glass sort of cheapens the whole thing. And, again, it's also clear how big the car is, in-person (not very Jaguar-esque).
