  • Pro: Awesome car, glad Jaguar is going back to it's racing heritage.

    Con: Spoiler + blue paint makes it look like an oversized WRX. Hideous

    That's two tons of fun. Although not a fan of the look-at-me color. I don't know why they are pessimistic about only selling 100 of them in the US. Mercedes seems to be able to sell plenty of high-priced AMG models.
    I wish I could afford one, and have the talent to drive it the way you did in that opening photo.

    Looks like a Pontiac G8 GXP to me for some reason...

    I like the color, but with that spoiler i'm in agreement with jcl, it looks like a wrx. It needs either a more subtle lip style spoiler or an even more aggressive spoiler but this one doesn't seem right for the car. Wonder how it compares to the cts-v?
  • Agree that the trim pieces and test car's gaudy color telegraph its sporting intentions too strongly. Jaguars should show traditional British reserve. Dress it in black, steel gray, or perhaps hunter green. Make it a bit of a stoplight sleeper. Like a great cat prowling quietly through the tall grass it should pack a bit of surprise for anyone who thinks it's easy meat.

    The Benz AMG is all sorts of awesome. It is what Darth Vader would drive.
    The Jag, in 'that' blue, is what Hefty Smurf would drive.
  • @desmolicious: Hefty Smurf, LOL! So true.

    Its funny that Jag so vehemently shot down the idea of entering the V8 supercar series, because that looks like it would fit right in.
