Nice Scimitar.

I'm always a sucker for a big estate, and that one is pretty stylish.

Well ...

But an Interceptor shooting brake would be a big sword in comparison to a scimitar.

I think there would be a weight balance issue with that. Adding more bodywork and weight to the rear will make it rear heavy.

I like that shooting brake a lot.
It's a much better resolved design than the coupe that was lashed up from convertible bodies.

Anyone know how close to the original that is? The rear wings look the same below window level and the roof looks to be the same line, so the doors look to have the same window frames ... but are they?

Very nice.

Yes, I am sure its not real. What I mean is what was changed on the image to create it - were there many small changes which would make it very expensive to actually make, or was most of it left as was.
