The car has a low sweeping profile and has a greenhouse appearance similar to the current Jaguar XF. Other similarities to the XF include the headlights and front end of the vehicle, as well as the chrome strips atop the doors. Some of the design has taken some cues from the Tesla Model S, while the rear seems to have taken design influence from the second generation Saab 9-5 and 2013 facelift Vauxhall/Opel Insignia, featuring a chrome strip connected to stylised C-shaped rear light units.
The overall performance of the Jackal makes it an excellent choice for a getaway vehicle. It corners surprisingly well for such a big sedan, and acceleration and braking are very good also, although under stress it does have a tendency to lock the front brakes up. The Jackal is also well-built, meaning it can take a number of hits before being disabled. Top speed is acceptable, but nothing spectacular.
