Doug stop talking out of your azz. It shares about 20% with the new Mondeo platform. The DB7 drivetrain is based on 2 "Taurus" V6 engines mated together and will beat most cars on the road. Ward's 10 best engines, Panoz, Qvale don't seem to have a problem with Ford drivetrains. C&D even says this of the DB7 vantage "Aston Martin Symphony for 12 cylinders and 2 exhausts is the SWEETEST sound on tuned pipes this side of J.S. Bach himself." Maybe you can educate them. NOT.

Thanks Chiphead -

Doug is a GM fan, so (of course) he is going to bash the Ford side of Jaguar.

Keep in mind that British prices are inflated. Jag wants to position the X below the S. My guess is $35k for a loaded 3.0 X-Type.

UK GS430: $53,620
US GS430: $47,355

I don't think this is a competitor to us since it's a convertible roadster thingee. I think it wants to compete with the SLK and Boxster, since I think they're more similar.

Hey - who pulled the switcheroo... Who replaced the cool jag with that VR6 (just kidding). I liked the jag picture better than the convertible box thingee.
