2012 Jaguar XF Supercharged: A Certain Je Ne Sais Quois
April 26, 2013
When our long-term Jaguar XF sits in the sun for a while, like in my driveway at home, it develops a certain je ne sais quois, that intangible quality the French use to describe that which we cannot describe. That's my polite way of saying this car gets a little stinky.
There's a lot of leather in this car but leather has a pleasant aroma. I blame the alcantara, which is a polite way of saying fake suede. It gets a little ripe if you know what I mean. It's amazing how earthy an artificial substance can smell.
