    Nice choice! And, thank you for getting a car with some color. This country is awash in a sea of greyish black, and white cars

    Black wheels...so in other words, these photos don't show your car.

    Awesome. Please rack up the miles, I can't wait until I see some reliability/maintenance/repair figures.

    Nice color! It's cool you have it at the same time as the Corvette, it will be interesting to see the comparisons.

    Glad to see you put a modern Jaguar in your garage to evaluate how it performs & stands up relative to modern cars.

    @fordson1 The photos accompanying this intro are of our long-term F-Type. Jaguar calls these wheels black. The outward-facing surfaces of the spokes and outer edge are silver; the other surfaces are black.

    It is easiest to see the distinction by configuring an F-Type R Coupe on Jaguar's website.

    Thanks. I was actually cringing thinking that this car would kinda replicate the bad-taste color palette of the Panther. The black on this car is much more understated than the gold was on the Chevy.
