J. Clarkson seemed to enjoy it . . . as a long distance cruiser, since it's slower than the older Vantage and costs a lot more, but is easier to drive.

That's the whole idea. This car is meant to be slowly savored and enjoyed like a fine meal, or a fine woman. No rush, and damn the cost....

Thats the thing with British cars, they may break a lot, and leak tons of oil, and not be the best built or the fastest...but damn they are sexy.

I'll take an old E type over an NSX any day of the week!



The British know how to make cars that looks so damn good, you can forgive a lot!

It may interest you to know that the new Bond movie was completed in Bregenz, it'll be released in Nov. As I understand it Martinis in Bregenz were on the house that day, *Geschuettelt, nicht Geruehrt*.

Too bad they don't put an MB chassis and engine underneath a Jaguar body! I like the new ones. They look similar to Aston Martins to me.

I think all the stuff I can't afford is vulgar.


If I get more money, that could change . . .

And now, the engine.

(Tell me this is not the sexiest sound you ever heard from a machine.)

Short and sweet

On this one, fast forward to 1:49:00 and then just listen straight through.

Nice looking car, can only imagine how the engine might sign at WOT. Now for something that could reach 190MPH in 1955 try this V8 Moto Guzzi motorcycle.

Sounds good, but not as good as a V12 F car or Zonda. IMHO.
