2012 Jaguar XF Supercharged: Odds and Evens

December 07, 2012

I can't be the only one to have noticed this, maybe just the first to blog on it. Are the odd-numbered MPH intervals a Jaguar thing? I wouldn't know because I've never bothered to care about Jaguars. But the XF makes me care. It makes me want to read books about Jaguars, both the brand history and the animal.

I want to help fund some start-up company just so it can develop better cell phone speakers so I can record and accurately reproduce in a ringtone the way the XF rumbles on start-up. I want to create a designer drug that reproduces the sensation of the XF's smooth, linear, unphased power delivery, unwound as naturally as asking Usain Bolt to run down to the store for a six-pack. This car is like that friend that always charmed your parents, but also made them worry. Definitely one of my favorites in the fleet.
