There’s a lot of car companies and cars that epitomize the countries they come from. The technical excellence in a BMW shows off the German need for precision.
Japanese innovation and engineering comes through in the Nissan GT-R. American muscle is heard every time a Mustang puts the pedal down. When it comes to England, it’s the first glance of the stiff upper lip of a Jaguar. The sleek and stately lines ooze a sense of aristocratic grace and elegance.
The current Jaguar product line is a great example of that grace and elegance. Every car is beautiful. Each seems to glide over the road like it owns the road. However deep down, the soul of a sports car is attached to a lot of these vehicles. If you have the good fortune to drive you, you can reach down and let the sports car beast out for a little while!
