The Jag arrived on a chill grey Tuesday morning in early April. I didn't get much work done that day, largely on account of leaving my desk every ten minutes to gawp at it. I particularly love the rear and the rear three-quarters - sharply drawn, slightly Aston-ish - while the tailgate evokes early E-type. The best car designs reduce us to schoolboys again, responding on an instinctive level. This was me on that Tuesday morning.
