    The Jags of old looked rather villainous that looks down right vicious!

    Love it..

    Video talking through the new design language and features of the facelift.



    I for one love what they’ve done with it, looks great. Very tempting with the mid range RWD V8 model.

    Very tempted Ian, be interested to see the real world reviews.
    Jim.
    2012 XKR Black pack, Speed Pack, Aero pack, Rat pack. Past:-87'XJS 3.6L, 93'XJ40 3.2L gold, 95'XJ6 4.0L sport, 00'XJ8 3.2L sport, 2005 XK8 4.2L coupe, 2009 XK 5.0L Portfolio in that order and enjoyed all of 'em.

    I do not offer advice, I only say what I would do with the set of circumstances presented. Your choice always.

    I love it too. Strange that they have dropped the SVR version and the R now has the engine, suspension and exhaust form the old SVR... I wonder if a new SVR will come out in the future- maybe with the 600hp version of the engine from the Project 8?
    2015 XFR-S in Polar White with Charcoal Leather & Red Piping and 20" Black/Diamond Cut Wheels (and the wing....)

    Seeing as the 5.0L v8 is entering Its last year of production I can see them creating one last hurrah with huge power to send it off, likely surpassing anything as powerful from Jaguar before it.

    Let's make things quite clear. I'm unlikely to ever be in a comfortable enough financial position to own an F Type and if I'm honest, I was never that keen on the styling of original one, much preferring the late XK (of which I had the pleasure of driving when presented with one, an XKR to be precise, as a courtesy car when my (also late) X Type went in for a service).

    However, I love that!!!

    I think hints of XK there around the haunches and the more 'corporate' nose.

    I want one!
    2017 XE Portfolio 180PS AWD in Santorini Black with climate pack (I don't scrape!) panoramic roof, privacy glass and 19" style 1015 wheels (that I'd happily swap for a nice set of 18" 5 spokes. Anyone?)
