Some pics from a visit to the motor museums at Gaydon and Coventry:
I wanted my first photo of 2017 to be this. Thankfully this vision of the future didn't come to pass. We got Brexit and Trump instead.
There are a LOT of Jags at both museums, this is ace as I'm all about the Jags nowadays.
Last-off-the-line XJ6 Sport, which was the final Jaguar to have a straight-six engine.
And here is an AJ6 engine. I can confirm they are really, really good at eating all their dinner.
It's Thrust, essentially 2 engines from a Phantom on a box-section metal sled. We rode the simulator ride which comprises a 3D film and seats that move about. It sounds rubbish but was surprisingly effective, and it looked bloody terrifying - it accelerates quite slowly to around 100mph, then within seconds it's doing nearly 600mph while the driver is having to hold the steering wheel at a 90 degree angle to keep it on track.
