Would you rather drive this or that?

Time to settle a sort-of disagreement @Microwave and I have had for a while :wink:

Which is the best 70s-90s Jaguar?

Jaguar XJ (Series 2-3 + XJ40)

Series 3 pictured

Jaguar XJS (Original, H.E. and Facelift)

I gotta go with the Sedan, personally. Looks less like a boat.


#325

XJS everyday, the XJ is uuuuh, not to my taste.:thinking:


#326

Now all I need is enough money to feed a small country and I can keep the XJS running.


#327

Just answered a bunch of these:

  • F150 because EcoBoost (which means I can fit an obnoxious blow off valve to it but no one will suspect it’s the truck making those noises)
  • Kia Stinger GT - only car that’s currently in production that I actually would want to own, and I’m not entirely sure why
  • 944/FC - legitimately cannot decide
  • Mazda 6 - hopefully has good handling
  • Renault Alpine GTA - because I’ve heard too many bad things about the DeLorean
  • Volvo 240/Saab 900 - is “both” an option?
  • Trabant 601 - mostly because curiosity
  • A45 AMG - Toss-up with the Focus RS, but I like the fact that Mercedes will unironically sell one of their cars with canards and a tall rear wing
  • Citroen CX - though I nearly picked the Audi 100 Avant for the second challenge the CX appeared in

Here comes my next set of answers:

488 Evo - Looks more menacing than the 911, which should be enough to convince any opposition to let me pass them by.

C7R - No replacement for displacement.

GT40 Mk.4 - As above.

XJS - Tom Walkinshaw launched his long and distinguished career in touring cars by entering this big, bulky coupe in Group A competition during the 80s, and never looked back.

The people have spoken, the XJS is better than the XJ.

I mean, you’re all wrong, but you can’t convince everyone can you :wink:


#330

Don’t do drugs, XJS is better, that’s all :sunglasses:


#331

Well, at least 30% of us are normal.


#332

I feel in love with the XJS when Simon Templar drove one in the Return of the Saint. That and the funky theme music were the best thing about it


#333

All of us are in fact wrong. Because the best 1970 Jaguar is of course the 420G, but only after swapping the Jag straight six for a Daimler 4.5 V8. Because period and geographically correct V8 swaps are the shit., plus the Turner V8 is far more powerful than the XK.


#334

Well Mr German, I never realised you worked for the Kray twins!

-Mercedes 200: I really love all the cars, I love the CX design and suspension, the Toyota, Peugeot, Lancia, Fiat, Audi and BMW design, but I love the Mercedes package. Timeless design, awesome reliability and comfort, and incredible awesome quality build.

-911 RSR. Faster than the Ferrari, good reliability, and excellent pace.

-Vette: I love the v8 roar. And Antonio García drives one.

-Ferrari. Nothing to say.

-XJS. the sedan it looks incredible, and I love it, but the XJS, hmmmmmmmm…

Some cars for the person who appreciates a quality driving experience over raw numbers.

1972 Lancia 2000 HF Coupé:
1991cc Twin Cam OHV (!) Flat 4, electronic fuel injection, 125hp, 5-speed manual transmission, front wheel drive



1956 Lancia Aurelia B20 GT (Sixth series):
2451cc OHV V6, Carburated, 112hp, 4-speed manual transmission, rear wheel drive (transaxle)

Iron oxide galore!


#338

The Aurelia by a whisker. I prefer its more curvaceous design, but not by much. And it has an RWD transaxle layout.


#339

Gotta go with the 2000 HF, personally. Interesting design choices combined with FWD make it interesting to me. After all, Twin-Cam OHV is something you don’t see every day.
