Looks as if it's missing that expensive CF front spoiler.

Nobody take offense here as it's personal opinion, but I can't stand ANYTHING green that doesn't contain chlorophyll.
......ehhhh.... maybe an exception for Neon Fluorescent Green...

I think 2012+ cars have BRG Metalic, instead of BRG.

No offense taken.

Personally I like green XKR's.

I have however, found that some of the weirdest people I have ever known have something in common beyond this former fact; that they drove green cars.

I had someone working for me that blamed space aliens changing clocks for why he showed up late at work sometimes; he drove a green car....

No offense taken, as opinions are wrong quite often.

Have a friend with a Land Rover in this color. It's absolutely gorgeous in the shade, cloudy days, night. But in direct sun, the metallic doesn't quite work with the green. Don't know if it'd be different on an XK.

Jaguar hasn't a real BRG in many year IMO. Several nice greens, but none true to the original international racing color. If only they'd release "Die Another Day Green"; the cars would be on back order!

I still say "Meh" about any green. BRG Original or not. Maybe it's a "BRITISH" thing....

I love British Racing Green as a color. As I look at my friends car, I think Q and C is right-- even if you take the metallic away, it's a tiny bit more blue (and a little lighter) than what I think of as a traditional BRG.

It's interesting - I mean IBM trademarked their specific shade of blue. I would think there'd be no confusion about the exact composition of British Racing Green, especially from a quintessentially British car manufacturer. (And I checked and the name of the color in 2012 is indeed "British Racing Green." Also interesting that it Jaguar notes it as a change from that God-awful "Botanical Green" beginning, according to Jaguar, with XK's manufactured after January 1, 2012.)

Here are two shots of my friend's Land Rover in BRG. Managed to walk by in direct sun (at least on the front) and shade. Really amazing the difference.

In general, I like the X150 in non metallic paint. The BRG metallic is over done on the metallic part. I much prefer Ebony to Ultimate Black.

The botanical green had(just looking at pictures) very subtle metallic; and might still be a nice color.

I also think metallic silver earns an exception as a good metallic choice for the X150. However, these are exceptions.

Same here. I do like that color but BRG is more of a "classic sedan" Jag color to me.
