Is it me or is there a hint of T350C in there somewhere?

Rear shot 4th down on the left looks like a Racing Puma to me. This isn't uncool - but not particularly Jag-whaaar

What a Mazda RX8 ripp-off
I'am afraid Jaguar is doomed when it stays within PAG. She has simply lost her identity. Sadly no more grace with pace.

Sorry, can't say that I like it.
It's just not a Jaguar.
Prefer my racing green X-Type.
Maybe I'm getting old and conservative.

"What a Mazda RX8 ripp-off "

Sure, Mazda = ford, Jag = ford. So its theirs to ripoff I guess.

What I dont understand, is its made of ali, and weighs 1500kg+, well over 200kg more than the RX8?

The other one posted is much nicer.

Shame neither will get build. Jag design team = teaze.

couldn't they have stopped the trend of questionable design with the s type?

Twin turbo 230bhp diesel - I like it. Wheel at each corner - I like it. But why does it have to be a V6, like a Capri? Should be a STRAIGHT six!

- And if you're going for a high specific output diesel, give it a supercharger, not a turbo, and make it a two-stroke. (Reassurance for those who don't know: that's further away from being a Wartburg than a conventional four-stroke is )
