I own the last one I will have now...I have the last wife I will have now...I raced my last race.
Go get one...you will love her.
Hey man, I see the example you are sharing.
That's the most powerful thing I have read here.

You should submit your story to the Jaguar Heritage Museum.
It will be an inspiration for the next brave spirit to grab the hand of adventure.

I like the Salsa red and the Radiance red.
That is BRG Metallic.

I believe Jaguar offered it from 2012ish on?

Emerald Fire is an all together different animal of a color. It is highly unique as a factory color.

Emerald Fire is Jaguar Racing Green but with silver instead of gold flakes.

Both are out of ordinary colors.

Jaguar Racing Green was specifically developed to make the F1 Jaguar's pop in a unique way on television compared to the nearly black BRG.

Depending on how the sun is catching the metallic flakes JRG and EF will look similar, but when the sun hits the flakes it is quite obvious as the JGR goes gold.

Unfortunately a lot of people have the two colors mixed up, and will label pictures as one when it is the other.

An interesting thing about JRG and EF is how the metallic flakes accent the lines of the car.
