I have a headlamp bezel on a shelf to remind me.
And a dozen patent plaques!
Cue,

is it possible to patent just an idea or a concept, or do you need tech spec, drawings etc?

A red XJS convertible, tan roof, US spec headlights.

Curious thing about the XJS, is that they tend to be my most commonly spotted modern classic. That seems to be at odds with their build/reliability reputation; a reputation which implies that seeing even one is a miracle. Maybe this tells us don’t believe what you hear, but believe what you see. And I see more XJSs than I see SECs...

Anyway, I think they’re ageing really well (y)

The Jag to Stag ratio - locally, at least - swings in favour of the XJS :)

Surprisingly, the theme of the headlamp shape etc has been patented along with other parts. I thought it was for “inventions” so I explained the unique relationship of the bumper to the step to the attornees.

OK. could you just submit a written explanation of the idea, or do they require images and tech specs, too?

A Giulietta Turismo from 2011. Very rare as they were never supposed to sell as they were just to put a lower price in the ads. Lacked alarm and had basic HVAC . It still had its steel wheels and wheel trims too.

One of those Z3 based Cobra looking things. Would have looked ok of it didn't have tiny little wheels.

Also an E36 EmmFree. I thought these had all met their end on track days piloted by people called Woz and Wez. It looked chavvier that Cheryl Cole's hen night.

A white VX220 on Langley Lane, Goosnargh this afternoon. Lovely little thing, and like a breath of fresh air compared to all the samey samey dreary modern metal.

A green Lotus Exige screamed past my road yesterday, bright green in colour.

Also a Mclaren of some sort was behind me on the way to work, dark blue in colour. Couldn't tell if it was the 600LT or the newer one, and frankly I'm not that enamoured by them. Shame the driver didn't feel like overtaking :whistle:

The Jaguar is built in Austria under contract and it looks like they were optimistic with numbers or need them for offset.
Some are leased at good price to NHS trusts, probably with small wheels and they only look good with upgraded wheels.

I find it a bit funny looking personally, I’m not a fan of this halfway house style that’s popular these days, make it an SUV or make it a saloon! Having said that I do see quite a lot of them so clearly it does it for some people.
