Last week, Clubstrada got behind the wheel of the 2017 Jaguar XE S in San Francisco at a launch event. Here’s our initial thoughts on the new small sport sedan that’s sure to blow its competitors away. Words by Ted Ziemba, photos and video by Nick George.
And it was absolutely fantastic; better than anything Germany can throw at it. It is perhaps the best modern sports sedan we’ve ever had the privilege to drive. But is it perfect? Expect a first impression article in the coming days.
“Classic car.” A term that’s bandied about all the time anymore. So, what makes a car “classic”? Is it age (I argue against that, as a Yugo is a classic by age.), looks, pedigree, performance? Or some intangible? Did it have some quality that set it above the rest? Or was it a ground breaking first somehow?
Tired of the same old Chevy, Toyota and Ford donning their cowboy hats and redneck shirts? Let’s add some ‘extras’ to NASCAR.
I don’t get it. Someone posts a pic of a beautiful woman dressed tastefully with a perfectly restored sports car. Cue the frat boy bro culture comments to be posted:
I can’t bring myself to love the F-type. It killed one of my biggest automotive crushes. I admit the F-type is great, but honestly it is the “Eggsy” to the XK’s “Harry.” Likeable and could be a respectable replacement, but just doesn’t keep up the high class presentation while simultaneously killing little old ladies…
Hey all, you may remember me as Shark Attack, unfortunately I forgot my burner password so here I am. Gave the Jag it’s second bath since purchase today so I could take it out and photograph it’s new shoes! They’re actually off of the e24, but since they have really nice directional winter tires and the Jag has been…
Happy Friday everyone. Hope it’s so wrong but so right.
So, um... I’m just going to leave a succession of four pictures to see if anyone else noticed this
In news from the world of chemistry, iron and steel oxidise in the presence of water to produce a brown compound with none of the properties of the original metal.
I love this hood ornament. Took this at the last C&C event with my Nikon F4S on Fuji 400 film.
I might have an extra cushion of cash and I’d love to work on one of these. The one I’m looking at has a ‘starter issue,’ which doesn’t really scare me. But, I’d rather first see if anyone who owns one hates or loves the vehicle, needs to work on I all the time, has ongoing issues, etc.
Got my ass up out of bed early this morning, and headed down to O.C. Coffee & Cars to get some shots of 3 star cars from Spectre. The C-X75 is even more striking in person than I imagined it would be, and it also led me to ask myself how in the hell Dave Bustista fit in there.
Who thought it would be a good idea to put a landau top on a Jaguar?
Today was my mother’s birthday so my girlfriend and I met up with family at a restaurant in Portland. I can’t recall the name but the biscuits and gravy were pretty good. Decided it would be a great time to take some pictures of the new Jaguar.
For the first time in forever, we have something with less than four doors in the Euro segment of Used Car Face-Off...in particular we have three 80’s touring coupes designed for the open road, one with a durable turbo 4, one with a silky I6, and one with a rumbling V12...which fits your personality and wallet best?
My dad has owned a 2000 Toyota MR2 Spyder for the past eight years. He absolutely loves the thing: mid-engined, manual, reliable as hell. However he is looking for a big upgrade. Price range is $50K-100K, and he wants something that shares some of the great qualities of the MR2. He wants something sporty and with a…
I’ve got a whole lot to share about today’s event at Willow Springs, but I’m too damn tired to do anything other than put this picture up. That’s me riding shotgun in an F-Type Project 7, with former Indy Car driver Alex Barron, and yeah, it was a pretty neat experience.
