Day of Test Cars

Seems Jaguar is busy busy today with new models.

Saw two test mules on the M40 today.


First a XJ looking rather sorry with plastic panels covering its bits and then happy days the new F-type goes flying by didn't realise deliveries of this have already started.

This must have been a press one since it was on a 62 plate

Still very nice car a lot smaller then I expected now to get my hands on one and take it for a run

How did the F-type look. The recent pictures that I saw made it looks a bit at odds with itself like it was proportioned slightly wrong when you seen someone sitting in it.

On the front 3 quarter angle it looks very like an S2000 but from the rear 3 quarter it looked a bit Z4.

Each Jag dealer got one F type each, as a demonstrator, yesterday.

Loads of F types rolling round the midlands at the moment. Mainly pre-release mileage accumulators and development hacks for post launch additions. Drive one and you'll want one, V8 preferably.

Only got to get good look at the rear and looks nice.

IMO the black canvas spoils but get a black F type and will look nice. There is a nice hint of E type at the back with the lights
