Timeless isn't an accurate word in my opinion. It will definitely look great for at least a couple more generations.
In my honest opinion, I believe the C5 was a more timeless design than the C6. I mean, just look at the difference between a C4 and a C5. It was something that changed the whole game. The C6 wasnt near as big of a step in the evolutionary process IMO. The C5 and it looks like the C7 will both be more memorable, and this is even coming from someone who doesn't care for the C7.
Figured this would probably ruffle some feathers, but as a previous owner of a C5 and currently an owner of a C6, I feel like I can at least say so without being unfairly biased.

The C3 is timeless today. I really like the C4 but it isn't timeless. The C5 was always very, very bad and the C7 is horrible. But one day the C3 will lose it's timeless image. C6? Great today, gone tomorrow.
Since the release of the C7....the base model C6 looks already looks dated, and I am not sure it will ever be a timeless being so close in design with the C5. The widebody C6s have the aggressive look to keep it looking young for now, but time will have it's toll on it once the C7 becomes more present on the roads, shows, track, and etc.
