1650 kg for a 2 seater and they rave about their "light weight aluminium" technology? Am i missing something here? That's heavier than even the much larger M4! I like the car otherwise.

British aluminum is made out of lead.

This car is going to be an animal. Probably one of the sexiest cars on the road, love the muscular look.

It's because it's made out of aluminium not aluminum!

Very good looking car, fairly priced. Win all the way around for the industry. The M4 best be on-top of its game.

New Mecan Turbo - 4.4 to 60 with sport chrono. Fun day in the car world.

Jaguar has really stepped it up. I heard a Vert rev in person and it's probably the best sounding car I've heard in a while. Add the looks/power and it's a pretty compelling package.

At least other brands are picking up the slack from BMW. Lots of exciting options next year when I look to replace my E92.

No, which sucks. I will say that it's by far the best torque converter transmission I've ever experienced. Instant shifts (even paddle operated) that propel you forward, amazing burst of crackle with high throttle shifts and completely seamless and smooth in low speed maneuvers.

I love everything about the car, BUT the FLUORESCENT GREEN and red badge. I would love to talk to the jag-off who approved that badge!
