The predatory feline is ruminating the possibility of turning its Concept Eight show car into a $100,00+ flagship sedan. The car could compete with the BMW 760Li, VW Phaeton W12, Maserati Quattroporte, and any one of Mercedes' giant-engined S models, plus Lexus is said to have a premium sedan in the works as well. The flagship would also be a kind of halo car for the XJ8 lineup, on which the Concept Eight model would be based. The only other spec to report is that Jag would most likely maintain the use of a supercharged V8, rather than redesign the entire bay to accommodate a 12 cylinder.
