Spotted this lovely 2019 Aston Martin Vantage parked near the office last week. Word on the street is that Aston Martin is having some supply line troubles and is greatly reducing the number of vehicles it is producing at the moment. Glad I could find this one out in the world. Couldn’t get a shot of the front because of it’s positioning but the back looks pretty damn sexy! Enjoy.
Spotted this 1970 Jaguar XJ6 in Silverlake in Los Angeles the other day. Love the cars from the late 60’s and 70’s like this Jaguar. Take a look at these pics.
We often times highlight classic and vintage vehicles on this site but there is a place for mid-modern and modern cars here too. Take for example this very clean example of a 1999 Jaguar XJR.
Some information via Wiki:
With the introduction of the X308 generation in 1997 came a switch from the XJ6 and XJ12 nomenclature to XJ8, reflecting the fact that the X308 cars were powered by a new V8 engine.
The exterior styling of the X308 was similar to the X300 with minor refinements such as a change to oval indicator lenses and amber style round fog lights. The interior was also updated to eliminate the instrument binnacle used on the X300; instead, three large gauges were set into recesses in the walnut-faced dashboard in front of the driver.
The major mechanical change was the replacement of both the inline-six and V12 engines with new eight-cylinder AJ-V8 in either 3.2 L or 4.0 L versions, with the 4.0 L also available in supercharged form in the XJR (A sport oriented model). No manual transmission was available, and all X308 models were supplied with a five-speed automatic gearbox.
Ahhhh, what a glorious car to spot in the morning while drinking a spot of tea. This wonderful British Sports Convertible embodies the beauty of styling from all of the world in the 1960’s and 1970’s. Oh yea, and it’s parked behind an E46 BMW M3 Convertible. What a lovely morning!
The Triumph TR6 (1968–76) is a British six-cylinder sports car and the best-seller of the TR range built by Triumph when production ended in July 1976.
All TR6 sports cars featured inline six-cylinder engines. For the US market the engine was carburetted, as had been the US-only TR250 engine. Like the TR5, the TR6 was fuel-injected for other world markets including the United Kingdom, hence the TR6PI (petrol-injection) designation. The Lucas mechanical fuel injection system helped the home-market TR6 produce 150 bhp (110 kW) (145 hp DIN) at model introduction. Later, the non-US TR6 variant was detuned to 125 bhp (93 kW), while the US variant continued to be carburetted with a mere 104 hp (78 kW).
