Hi all. Spent a lazy afternoon reading this, good insight into some of the back ground of our long waited machine!

Not as such, confirms about the car being engineered to take 22" wheels from the outset, through to design of the car. Starts with a trip to artic circle. Little note to Autocar... On last double page spread of this feature it states "in opulent S spec the car looks spot on" (wrong!!) it's actually an R sport with a black pack and black alloys. :roll:. Running through as would expect is all about the D7a architecture the Jaguar DNA. The factory line gets a few pages, suppliers etc. Oh yeah... and the next Jag we get will be from Listers Droitwich.... They take you out to lunch if theirs a deal to be done... Nearest I got was a biscuit from Dean with me coffee :lol: all joking aside it is worth a read if your into all the detail.... You have to buy the main Autocar mag at £3.80 but that to has some good features too although I always have and be an Auto express boy since the early nighties. :cool:
624 prototypes built. 250,000 miles of testing... Till we get hold of it anyway :eek: :lol:

The man is correct, I do notice that the vertical blades on the Lower intakes are black.... We have to have body colour on our uk R sport even with black pack, only S gets that black as standard, another difference with our European members... Can't believe the EU would let this sort of thing happen :lol:

Thanks YVR_Pacer, that made for an interesting all-round Sunday evening read, besides all the usual 'sales PR' stuff there was quite a lot of info in there that I didn't already know about. Good of you to make it available (although I'm not sure that Autocar would agree!!) . . and thanks, also, to Jags cat for drawing attention to it.

Sadly for those of us outside the UK, it is harder to get our hands on a legitimate copy of Autocar, so we have to make do ;)
