Holy cow! This would probably be the first time I'd pick a Jaguar over an Aston Martin because that exhaust note is ridiculous!

That Jaguar is awesome, and I'm not even a big fan of them! The Aston Martin stole the Ford Fusion grill, so it loses just kidding....

That's ok, the Jag stole its grill from the Mitsu Evo. (kidding of course)

and as for the head to head, that Jag is pure sex. Totally take it over the Aston Martin. Maybe because AM has the bar set to high that it looks like any other AM.

Uh, you gotta go way back further than that junior.

The 1958 DB4 looks essentially the same.

The Jag looks like an ugly tuner car.

I am pretty sure he is kidding.

AM has used that grill for decades.

I think what you mean is that it looks like a track tuned car with functional aero components, which is exactly what it is. That's why it’s faster than the lighter Aston Martin around a track. Functional aero bits have a few priorities above “looking pretty”. If I had one as a daily driver (would never happen given the $170k+ asking price and limited quantities) I'd just have a removable rear wing for track duty.
