If it were the Constitution shouldn't look exactly like the Enterprise?

It could be the one that crashes into the Thames.
From the trailer I just saw yesterday this is the most plausible answer. If it is not the very ship it is one just like it.

It's been reported for nearly a week now that IGN says the Enterprise is the ship crashing into the water
We know its not giagantiprise because the engines ! pylons and general shape are different so by deduction it must be the original (April's) enterprise
Just because it's reported, doesn't mean it's an accurate report.
Whatever ship we see crashing into the water and buildings is NOT Kirk's Enterprise. The lower hull has a recessed deflector dish while Kirk's ship has an exposed dish. And it seems highly unlikely there'd be two ships named Enterprise in the movie.

Be very interesting if during the Ship-to-Ship battle, Harrison knows the "Command Codes" for the JJ-prise.

Re: Spoilers: Is This [Spoiler]'s Original Enterprise?

My current crazy theory: This other ship looks little bit like the Enterprise-E, especially the nacelles and secondary hull. What if that's because it's the result of Old Spock teaching Starfleet all about future Treknology? It's the only reason I can think of that would explain Starfleet's "newest flagship" Enterprise being surpassed by a bigger badder ship in less than one year.

See, the fact that the second ship looks so similar to the heroes' Enterprise implies heavily to me that it is another ship named Enterprise. I think if it was another ship they would have gone out of their way to make sure it was very distinguishable from the Enterprise (for example, the Reliant was designed so that it was very obvious that it wasn't the Enterprise). I think the similarity means something.

Re: Spoilers: Is This [Spoiler]'s Original Enterprise?

Or maybe the ship we see crashing is part of some prologue or flashback of Aprils Enterprise? Who knows how old Harrison is anyways? Genetic engineering?

Re: Spoilers: Is This [Spoiler]'s Original Enterprise?

The images from the trailer still makes it a complete mindpuzzle. If it was the old Enterprise, surely it would look more like the TOS design or atleast have design cues from the Kelvin.

The nacelles look Post ST:First-contact 24th century to me.

I take the safe bet that it is just another ship in the fleet that gets red-shirted, one that initially fools the audience it is the enterprise to stimulate anticipation of the hero ship taking a dive.

April's Enterprise as seen in the comic looks remarkably similar to the 1701, just with smaller nacelles. Which this ship seems to have.

Re: Spoilers: Is This [Spoiler]'s Original Enterprise?

It is interesting that they would pick a design so close to the Enterprise. In other movies and series they have usually avoided that shape so the hero ship would remain unique. An earlier Enterprise might be a plausible idea.

Which comic was it pictured in. Also can you link me to a image of the ship? I would like to see it.

Re: Spoilers: Is This [Spoiler]'s Original Enterprise?

It's just another goddamned Starfleet ship, and is just as likely the U.S.S. Bupkis as anything else. Most of them look alike and have for almost 50 years - haven't y'all noticed?

David Messina frankly didn't seem to be trying too hard when it came to drawing starships, as seen in a pic of Kirk's Enterprise from the same angle as the first pic of April's above. You'd be hard pressed to discern the difference, or indeed much resemblance to the onscreen starship at all:

What makes you think it surpasses the current Enterprise, or that its a bigger badder ship?
