M3 V 2014 Jaguar XFR-S

XFR-S looks like its a beast. They are definitely getting their act together, the "F Type " is going to be a force to be reckoned with as well.

Nice car but the M3 is still a winner. That wing in the back looks like it came off of Subaru STi

Just Meh, too many parts that look like "add-ons". Almost a cheap looking body kit tht could have been in fast and furious. Maybe if I saw it in person and it was lowered or something. Perhaps blacked out and not smurfed out as well

The XFR-S is a beast. I love it.

The M3 is not an apt comparison. It really is a competitor to the M5. However, I wouldn't buy one (or an M5, for that matter). It's just too big for my needs.

Now, if they made a coupe version of the F-Type S V8, I would jump on that in a second.

Big, Bulky, Bartacamous.

I'd opt for a M5 if I were interested in a luxo sports saloon.

Brutal exhaust note -- nice.

Enjoyed the video but was immediately jarred out of the mood by the shot of the driver turning the little pop-up wheel to the right to go into gear. Completely the antithesis of a sports car.

Aston already has the sports car for non-enthusiasts market covered; Jaguar needs to de-lux a bit more for this to be truly credible.
