WCOC round of 16 match 4

This has the feel of a 10th and 11th place play-off

My least favourite QP against a middling Jag. Hmmmmmm.

To me, the QP looks like a big Japanese car. The Jag, in the right colour with the right wheels, just looks better (to me untrained eyes).

AMG C63 estate

This is the battle of the front ends. I love the Maser and the Jag grilles. But which one do I love more?

Both suffer from the fact that if there was no practicality question I'd pick the GranTurismo or the F-Type instead. But then again if I'm really considering practicality I wouldn't have either car because I'd have an estate.

I think the QP just wins it. Despite how mean kb is about it.

I'm calling 'fix' on this 'cos of the 'arse end and four 'zorsts' shot of the Maser, even though I am voting for it.

The Jag is just an average repmobile/junior exec. Looks OK but hardly beautiful.

I don't especially think the Maserati is drop dead gorgeous but it does have something about it so I'm voting Italian.

This is a good example of how everyone who genuinely voted for this Jag on the merits of its looks (and my mind is boggling at why they would because it is a bland shed) can't have understood that it would fail catastrophically at any following hurdle, unless it was one similarly encumbered by the myopic, Francophobe aesthetic dyslexia demonstrated in the previous round.


A moral victory against the troglodytes. Have at you!

I had no issue about it falling catastrophically at the next hurdle. I decided that a nice-faced more-average looking car was better than an ugly, if unique, looking car. Don't get me wrong, the winner will be a stand-out car and I'll vote against nice-faced more-average looking when it's up against something that's actually good looking.
