Jaguars that suck

So I am moving my business to a new complex and there is a high end "wrapping" business there. Gallardo's in carbon fiber etc. pulled in today and saw this poor thing... Someone should be shot.

Maybe I'm just not a purist, but that one looks ok. The form of the car has always seemed so pure to me that color doesn't matter too much and this reminds me of what McClaren did with their F1 car. Can't truely tell this is a wrap from photo; I'd drive it, I think. Like it better black on black with top down for me on this car.

Agree with Davis. Not my thing but it's pretty impressive how "chrome" that looks for a wrap. And aren't wraps reversible?

Seems this is getting popular, I've seen some high end cars recently (Porsche 911 Turbo, etc) wrapped in this metallic BS (IMHO) of different hues, makes me shake my head in disbelief, but I guess its just showing that I am becoming an old fart..

Odds are in favor of Burke getting talking to his new neighbor, who will "admire" his Defender, and offer him a deal on Chrome or CF wrap....

Probably ok to do that to a Series II or III Jag E-type. But if that were a Series I covered headlight model then that would really suck.

I hate chrome to start with, but to do that to an E no matter which series, and chrome XK8 wheels to boot. Guy wants shagging, but each to their own.
