It's also interesting to see that Jaguar totally killed its leaping Jaguar hood ornaments that they had on at least a couple of their models every year. I know that all of the brands have really trimmed down on hood ornaments, but I think that Jag may be one of the first to completely eliminate them from there line. I actually think that Cadillac may have eliminated them a few years ago though...I can't be sure. I know Mercedes still uses them on many of their models.

Although the leaping hood ornament was interesting, we had ours stolen one too many times from the hood of our S-Type.

Here is the article from the New York Times:

Another from USA Today:
Stay tuned to Drive On: Sleek new Jaguar XJ will be revealed here today at 3:30 p.m. ET - Drive On: A conversation about the cars and trucks we drive - USATODAY.com
actually in 2003 it had a ground up redesign, went to aluminium chassis and grew in size (but lost weight). though the overall look was similar to the XJ we've known for years.

Look llike something Ford will design. Jaguar has lost it's appeal. I still like the SEXKR.
