I use Jaguar’s instrument cluster as a barometer, so many are so cluttered.
It’s minimal, and uses appropriately-sized numbers, text and symbols (especially the cruise control.)
How the rear window cascades over the side though.
And how the taillights do the same thing.
It’s also available in a V8, but this standard supercharged V6 launches quickly, especially in sport mode. Despite it’s size the XJ is very nimble. Steering is well balanced and direct, its handling is refined, and of course that great Jag growl.
Those are the controls for the rear seats. Leather everything, carbon fibre touches, it’s all elegance that will wear well over time. It’s the same thing I always say…
Jaguar is the car version of old money
Which means my grimey outfits become chic.
Even their marketing campaign rocks #GoodToBeBad – why Jaguar is the perfect car to drive when committing crime.
Remember when I spent a Saturday night hanging out in my driveway with This Week’s Car? It was this one.
Thought I was a beautiful park, till the man came over and asked why I was photoing a car on his lawn, “wait, I’m not on public property am I…”
He was kind and let me stay.
