Default XKR in the news! .... by accident

I saw a news article and there was an X150 pictured, in the background.
The link;
https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news...oshoot-n976421

A screenshot (ugh, portrait video makes me cry);

So without a doubt what the lady did was wrong, but at the end of the day the couple and their photographer were trespassing on private property as well... Nice car though...

We're all too nice on this forum to be in the "Frantic Frani" group!
Just wish she drove something else instead of a cool car.

I dont think race was an issue, she only 'attacked' the white guy.

But here is the elephant in the room.
Does she even know what a supercharger is or care?
Ever used the dynamic mode, or paddle shiffters?
Does she even know her car is an XKR?
I doubt it.

And that's the sad reality for Jaguar, majority of the target audience is just like her and not the enthusiast who wants bigger paddles and oil gauge.

Given such impossible odds, Jaguar amazingly still managed to look out for us rare enthusiasts.

She’s got great taste in cars but, she's an unattractive hag. She gets no love from me.

I've had droughts before, but even if I were in a desert and she was water, I'd die first.

Funny as I knew a guy back in the day when I was working who told me , he never met an ugly woman. I guess it tells you a lot about his standards. LOL

Absolutely not. You are not privileged if you earned it fair and square. Privileged is being born with a silver spoon in your mouth. I got mine the hard way - I earned it.

Stop being brainwashed to feel guilty about your success by the socialist left's nonsense about "income inequality". That's a strategy to get young voters because there are more "have-nots" than "haves". It's a cop-out for differences in aptitude, intelligence, ability, education, motivation, tenacity, willingness to sacrifice and take risks, luck, and other factors that determine how much you can earn and save. America is the land of opportunity, unless you decide to sit on your *** and do nothing. There are many great success stories of Americans who lifted themselves up and out of poverty by their own determination, vision, and hard work. Those who espouse income inequality want a hand out, not a hand up. They should join the Army, like I did, and learn discipline, respect and responsibility.

OK Stu didn't want to strike a nerve here. I would assume that most on this site have come from the same place as you and are proud of it. That considered we are maybe in the top 10% so to others we would be considered privileged . I don't object being in that group as I started with nothing and now am able to enjoy what I like. Have fun and enjoy the day.
