There is something beautiful and at the same time simply sinister, about driving a V12 Jaguar in the night. You're bathed in this warm phosphorous green glow of the instruments, the sound of 12 cylinders a blaze, taunting you to go faster, and together with the cool night's breeze fools you into thinking you're flying a World War 2 fighter, its truly insatiable.
I'm not crazy about American cars, so I just snapped one photo for the sake of it. Once you've seen one American car, you've seen them all. The design is the same across the board, $1,000,000.00 R&D budget for the engine and then 10c on everything else.
I'm not particularly crazy about BMWs either. Over the last two decades, they've just become overly obnoxious, overweight and expensive. However I did spot this gem among all the E46 M3s. It's a E32 735i with a 5 speed manual and a 4.27 differential. Its wearing period correct BBS wheels and some sort of body kit. I think I want one.

I stumbled across this commercial on youtube while searching for the "Claws" X-Type commercial (still looking, send me a link if you have it). Looks like an original 1976 Jaguar XJ French commercial featuring a Series 2 XJ. Enjoy!
