    Unmasked but still heavily camo'd.
    I'm withholding comments till I get to see the whole thing.
    This is supposedly the interior however...

    I might be holding on to my MK7 longer than I thought hah...

    Hardly at all, 3 of them were caught without camo, possibly on test wheels tho. Think that also scoop was where your dash pic came from.

    [EDIT] I'm sorely tempted by a late model 7.5 while the 8 gets up and running. I understand they are not going to have the usual delay in the GTi making an appearance this time round.

    Ok maybe "heavily" was a bit of an exaggeration lol.
    A bunch of these pictures were posted on the MK7 forum about a month ago and you can see in the higher-res photos that a lot of the lower grille and lights (front and rear) are still covered by body-colored and black vinyl.
    But yeah no doubt that the production model will look pretty much identical.
    They are still just covering up some of the details...
    The front of that green car looks like it just has a vinyl print of a MK7.5 front bumper as well as the body colored stickers to cover up the area where the headlight now wraps around to the fender and black sticker to make them look like the general shape of the MK7 headlight.

    Stunning Jag!! In a weird way, I love the coupe more than the convertible

    Another favorite...
    Make sure you have your speakers on because the background music really makes the video in my opinion...

    Thinking of selling my E30 M3 after 25 years of ownership. Considering one of these:

    Yes Fritz, the car, while 'pretty,' is possibly a bit of what today would be called a mash-up of cues/features seen on other pre-existing models. But I was interested in it because both the Marque and this model are very rare - I'd never seen one before. BTW, the back end is I think well integrated:

    Drove one of these around '72/'73 and the engine note was great and the steering frighteningly quick until you'd got used to it. A 'brave' effort I feel by Citroen, which didn't quite come-off. Talking of 'brave' any technician opening the bonnet of one of these for the first time and seeing this, would need to have that attribute!

    Mash up or not, thats a properly lovely little car.

    But then, I also like the Citroen DS series and the SM
