    Just a thought, but as they have now seperated from Ford, why not buy in a BMW six engine? If the cars new, should be possible to have a different subframe to fit it. Clearly BMW are happy to sell their engines to other manufacturers (e.g. Weissman and Morgan), so why not Jag?

    Que??????
    A JAGUAR with a GERMAN engine.
    That's like suggesting we hand all remaining Spitfires over to VW to be remade in carbon fibre and insist of swastikas for the wing decals.



    Why can't some northener with a shed hand make a straight six on a lathe with two wooden mallets and a spanner his old grandad used to fix WW2 bombers. I see him now, in greasy overalls, hand polishing the cylinder heads with a bit of rag, black rimmed glasses glinting in the light of his oil lamp. the smell of hot engines, a woodbine, half smoked in the corner of his mouth.

    Oh yes.

    War or no war, I'd still prefer a BMW straight six. Unless, of course Jaguar decides to revive a good old British tradition and develop a killer 3.0l of their own. Another option could be the 3.5l from Nissan.

    Is it the Cloth Ears Engine? I've heard of it. A variant of the Wanker Rotary Engine, it used a specially-shaped 4-bladed rotor in a circular combustion chamber. Looks a bit like this:

    Ian Callum needs to stop designing the same car over and over again. It's a dull facsimile revisits of all of his Astons, the two generations of XK, and with a tilt towards the Maserati GT, oh and chuck some retro e type hips chucked in for good measure.

    Beyond pastiche and at the price point 60Kit needs to be very, very good. Given the brand's dismal residuals over recent years, if one really, really wanted one, you'd be best waiting 18 months and paying 25K for one, once someone else has taken the min 50-60% dep'n hit., and Jaguar have snagged earlier production cars of faults.

    I really respect Mike Cross as a chassis dev guru, but don't think he can prop the brand up, nor it's cheqeured recent past investment/ownership cycles, where it's been passed from pillar to post. Of course all speculative, gievn the car has yet to be tested and compared with it's peers.

    Oh you wanted some luxury @ 50K? Sorry, that's poverty spec basic model. Most buyers will add 30% of extras. And therein lies the profit for Tata.
