Default Nothing we didn't already know...

This just popped up in my YouTube feed. He's a little repetitive but a fun review.

Not sure where he got 502HP from...

Eyeopening video.

1. It confirms what was always suspected, most folks dont even know the existence of this car, even guys in the car world, and especially the ignorant youth.

2. The video shows in a nutshell the challenge Jaguar faces in the new age, this car expert idiot thinks the piano black lacquer, or lacquer de chine, is gloss black. Pearls before swine.

What a cool color though. I don't think I've ever seen that color on an XK before.

I'm surprised he didn't need to stop half way through the recording to change his underpants.

Sparky!

On the other hand though, had a fellow drilling a new H2O well today who told me he thought it was a Miata parked in the garge, then was blown away to find it is an XK..... Now he indicated he was real l l ly envious, but I was still insulted by his guess. Maybe I'll get it out for a spin tomorrow, just to rub it in a touch.

Always thought the older 2000s model looked like they were based on the xk100

Also worth noting the 2007 upwards have very similar tail lights to ours well the pre face lift xk150

A new Miata was in consideration when I got my X150.

I'd argue against his video title; it isn't forgotten, people can't forget what they never knew about in the first place.

I have a general youtube rule to not view videos with annotations on thumbnails.

Leave the annotation to the title text to be read properly. Let me look at an unadulterated thumbnail.
