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.

That must have been one of them then since it was a 62 plate.

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
