The Mercedes-Benz CLS might have been inspired by the Jaguar XJ; it's essentially an E-Class sedan with curvier styling inside and out, as well as a high-powered AMG version among its flavors.
The BMW 7-Series has awkward exterior styling and the dreaded iDrive controller for in-car systems, but it handles well and is offered in a long-wheelbase edition.
The Lexus LS also comes in a long-wheelbase edition, as well as a hybrid.
