V8 Jag bites the dust.

Coming home from downtown, when I see this V8 Jaguar speeding and cutting up the lanes at the lights. I'm slowly moving along until we both come up to a redlight, where his right lane merges into mine.

I get maybe the least bit a jump on him at the light, and let him hear my vtec ... I couldn't believe I was doing this during the day..I knew he was trying to get by me b/c I could hear his engine screaming as well.

Afterwards he drove a bit slower, sitting a few paces back behind my 3.2 V6.

Which Jaguar? The S type? I think thats the same at the Lincoln LS in which case, yeah, we can easilt take an LS. The 2004 is supposed to have more power though and it matches out 0-60. According to the commercial it can outhandle a BMW 540. If only it wasn't massively overpriced.
