Thanks for the links... 

 

I'm quite sad about it, I really do love their cars.

If I had suddenly come into a lot of money around 2011, the first car I would've bought is a GT MF4. Wiesmann was one of the only botique manufacturers of the last two decades to truly get retro-modern right without having the classic roadster inspiration tie it down in the engineering department.

I hadn't thought about an F-Type, and that's actually now my first choice.

The Jaguar F-Type is seriously one of the best looking cars in the flesh. The interior is fit for royalty and the ride is the very definition of sports luxury.

Something about English luxury cars that other makes cannot comprehend...the very definition of the word luxury without diluting its meaning. Something only royalty can understand.

Other schitty brands claim to be luxury but botch the ride with expensive run flat tyres that will cost you 700 for a new one when you receive a puncture. Yes a new tyre for a puncture because runflats cannot be repaired!

These tyres have thick sidewalls and make the rubbish vehicle on top ride like glorified sex toy. This causes rattles and squeeks to develop sooner and chassis fatigue sets in really quickly.

Then they tell you its good...because its 'sports' luxury. But the extra sprung weight of the tyre is counter 'sports' handling. Lies, lies and more lies.

If you could afford one of these Bastardised Motor Wagons you could afford a real sports car...like the Jaguar F-type.

I just realised my avatar has been the eye of a jaguar for years now.

Land Rover has a competition to win a trip into space!

 

I drove a Holden Jackeroo AKA a Isuzu trooper...until it ran out of rego and I wasn't able to afford to re register it and had to sell it.

 

I love my off road vehicles.  What about you guys?

 

Anyways, I was thinking, if I work hard enough, maybe I can afford a Land Rover Defender.  I have completely fallen in love with this vehicle.  A real all terrain vehicle, even better than my Trooper.  So I'm doing my research and lo and behold Land Rover has a competition to win a trip into space!

 

No way man....my dream come true.  I'm gonna enter fo sho!  Here are some more details:

See y'all from space!  :dt880smile:

 

Wonder if I can bring a portable dap and my headphones?  Just imagine seeing our amazing planet from space with a soothing track....one can literally say one is in headphone heaven.

Jaguar has been on a roll recently with their new designs. I was afraid that the Tata takeover would dilute the brand into a generic fringe luxury car brand, but they've kept the British spirit alive without getting weighed down with it like Ford did. Where Ford's strategy with the brand led to dated designs and caricatures of British luxury until they finally started getting their act together at the very end, Tata's work with JLR has reinvigorated both brands with a modern edge. Even the new XE looks damn good, something that can't be said about an entry-level 3-Series or C-Class.
