Mystery Car For Sunday

The last “mystery” car proved entirely unmysterious, partly because DTW’s readership includes ex-owners and people with uncanny memories and powers of observation. 

Gorgeous quality.

It’s time to take the oven gloves off. All I can say is that it’s rear-drive. I’ll get back when I feel you’ve twisted long enough in the wind.

  1. I’m guessing it could be a late 80s BMW 7 series.
    Just found your website – it’s really fabulous!

  2. That’s difficult. I like the delicate chrome border, and the brightwork has a nice, anodised sheen to it. But the latter’s too bright for an ’80s/’90s Mercedes, and BMW’s brighter still. Audi didn’t shape their b-posts in this fashion, so I guess the car in question isn’t German.

  3. Could it be a Jaguar? XF (former generation) maybe?
    The Pillar looks very similar there, and my image search even showed some ill-fitting examples like the one you have shown.

    1. You might be right. I was thinking of Alfa Giulia (resurrected name, RWD), but the thickness of chrome strip related to the black pillar parts is lower on the Alfa.

    2. I’m impressed. Both by Roberto’s set of eyes and the Chrysler’s brightwork.
