Re: Jaguar XKR-S

cant decide on this one. a beautiful car but i prefer the equivalent Aston Martin, the V8 Vantage.

this may technically be a better car but it lacks something that the AM has, cant put my finger on what though.

Re: Jaguar XKR-S

What an absolutely gorgeous cracking car.

Pity it a Jag then: Uncool.

:(


Just try it, you in the pub/bar someone comes up to you:

"What do you drive?"
"Umm... A Jag. "
"Wayhay Grandad, did you buy it off Inspector Morse?"


(And do you see how that conversation never ends
up like that if the answer to the question is Alfa? ;))

has it got something to do with the fact that AM has never had a mondeo based saloon?

i voted cool (just) anyway. they sound amazing:D

Lovely car definately coolish, just a bit jumped up style-wise the spoilers look almost aftermarket add-ons but good quality.
I wouldn't be ashamed to own it though, just that I wouldn't rave about it.

But sadly, we know how that conversation does end if the answer to the question is Alfa

Anyways, Big Jag = Cool. Just.

I always wanted an XJR, just couldn't bring myself to step off the cliff face that is the Jag depreciation curve. I'd say they are all cool, except X Types and S Types, obviously.

Cool, but then I love all big cats,I have owned:

3.4 Mk VIII,
3.8 Mk II ( Morse model)
4.2 XJ6
3.6 XJ40.

so perhaps I am biased.The S type is only let down by its underpowered engine.:thumbs:

I voted Cool on performance and looks, sadly it will be ruined by the influx of MD's and Suits' on the M6
