There were front views. The hunt is on.

I've watched for years and came with nothing. And without a drag-limited top speed, it's impossible to reverse-engineer.

The Jaguar E, at Cd=0.44, is surprising. That model sure had my eyeballs fooled. It must be all that extra surface area.
It's another pseudo-Jaray 'fastback' with such a steep greenhouse rear slope that the air can't remain attached.
You'll notice that today's Jaguar's don't have a roofline that radical.

just picked up a 2022 Hyundai Sonata hybrid and see the thing has a .24 Cd.

other places I see it's 56.9" tall 73.2" wide. I can't find a stat but I would guess the frontal area is about 24 sqft similar to an A8 or a 7 series. That puts the CdA at 5.76. It's rated higher on the highway than in the city which is abnormal for a hybrid but maybe aero has something to do with that.
