Jaguar F-Type Prototypes Take on the Ring

I don’t know about you, but I can watch Shaguars (as Austin Powers says), or… Jaguars race around a track all day. Especially when it’s the F-Type going all-out on the Nürburgring. Thanks to YouTuber cvdzijden, we have this video of F-Type prototypes tackling the storied German track.

These prototype F-Types don’t sway very far from the existing S convertible and R coupe models, to my eyes, but they do remind you how far former Aston Martin and now Jaguar lead designer Ian Callum has resurrected a tired, retro brand.

Okay, it’s a little derivative of the Aston style, but as many creative geniuses have said, “Good artists borrow. Great artists steal.” Even better if you steal from yourself.
