Been discussed a lot this car, apparently it was not made by Jaguar apprentices, it was merely owned by Jaguar. Price is falling quickly, it started at £10k. :shock:

That is one butt-ugly thing, the rear of the car looks awful - Whoever made this thing had no clue about style!
OTOH, the x300 the prototype convertible is a beautiful thing.

Awww! I missed it! Can someone post a pic please? I am intrigued. My tiny brain cannot process the 40 and convertible at the same time!

Wow. Never mind, I found some pics. A couple were just not necessary, the one was, as stated, Butt Ugly. Sorry to any owners but it is only my opinion.

Agreed - the lines of the car are retained, so it works from a design standpoint.

It's back!!!

Now that they've added more photos I see what you guys mean. The rear end is awful. From the side it makes it look as though the boot is open all the time.
The soft top hood looks very amateurish too, with just plastic curtains for side windows.

No wonder they've dropped the price (again).

Bloody hell, that soon dropped from £10k :lol:
