The XKSS/Aston examples were a Grand Tour feature a couple of weeks ago.

I wonder why Ferrari arent bothering with this trend. Or Lambo or McLaren. Could it be that unlike Jaguar, their icons arent behind them. After all, and I say this as someone with an F type, Jaguar only really made two great sports cars, the D and E types.

My F is a lovely and very competent car but its only somewhere around the Boxter / TT bracket, not a 488 / huracan competitor which is where the E type was in its day. And the V12 was hopeless.

Would I hasve one of these replicas? Of course I would if I could afford it. Mind you I think I might prefer an Enzo.

I sort of agree with that. BL didn't do Jaguar any favours and the best stuff is E Type and earlier.

Too many Jags attract silver surfers. I'm not trying to be confrontational. Just look who's driving most Jags and there you have it.

Said the Morgan fan.

Jag's PR group are doing very well....they're everywhere right now...including the last three weeks on the Grand Tour (and not just the star in a car part).

I seem to remember a bit of a fuss over the E-types made using the 6 chassis plates that were not used in the original build. Didn't Lord March state that he didn't consider the cars to be true originals and bar them despite their using already set up chassis numbers?
It certainly seemed to be a good promo/money-spinner for Jag.
OK....the continuation 6 don't have the provenance of the originals but a nice use of the cut short original build plan as they were still an in-house build.

The C Types weren't bad either and neither were the XK120's wink

To recreate some of the classic Ferraris would be extremely expensive given the specialised nature of most of the components, including the engines.

Jaguar had the advantage of sharing more items with the road-going cars which were relatively mass-produced.
