What do you call your Jaguar?


Recommended Posts

Our XJ8 got written off at the begining of May :angry: so we have replaced her with a 2007 XJ TDVi 2.7 :) and as we have only had her for about a month, we are still calling her Stunning!! :wub: But in the meantime I need to think of an appropriate name for her.

The MK9 is called the Beast!! As it is such a big car. :blink:

My mark 2 is called Big Vern. I didnt even get the chance to think of a suitably svelte and attractive feline name for him/her. As soon as my wife saw the car it was immediately named after the bogus east end gangster from VIZ comics.

Whilst I might feel that the car reflects the aura of a professional person such as a bank manager. (His first owner was a doctor in Edinburgh).

The Strife clearly has visions of us going tooled up for a blag and keeping an eye out for the filth

I in my turn have started calling her Lewis, whilst listening to Mozart on the ancient radiomobile!

Sometimes the name that we use for our beloved can change- especially if it wont start or you realise that a massive bill for parts or mechanicking is needed!

But Kitty is fine as it will only be you that will use it. As in "Come on Kitty, get me past this truck, so I can get going".

Most peoples cars are so boring and non descript that there isnt any point in giving them a name.

At least Jaguars old and new evoke a sense of style and quality-these cars are worthy of adoration.

I just call mine "Very very nice Car". When ever we see another S Type I say 'there's a very nice car' or any other jag is referred to as 'nice car'

Best I can come up with!

Colin :wub:

I think all of you can bet that your car will be called a completely different name if it plays up or will not start bless it ??????

I definitely concur with that. My S-Type keeps coming up with Yellow Engine Management lights and when read through OBD2 has no Codes recorded. If I stop the engine and re-start, the yellow lights are still there. Then drive away for 100 yds or so and the lights disappear until the next showing and we do it all over again. That is when her name changes, as long as my grand daughter is not in the car !!!!!!!!!!!!

Best Wishes, John

      Jaguar is commemorating the end of its internal combustion sports car lineage in 2024 with an exclusive limited-edition F-TYPE inspired by two iconic 1960s racing E-types

      Just 150 examples of the F-TYPE ZP Edition will be the last internal combustion-engined sports cars designed by Jaguar. These 575PS supercharged petrol V8 F-TYPEs feature specially curated interior and exterior details by the personalisation experts at SV Bespoke.
