I thought it would be just another boring Sunday. I thought I would just spend my time revising my university notes and fall asleep from it. I thought that changing the notification settings on my Facebook account would just amount to nothing.
And then my Lumia alerted me of Indera Motor’s last day for showcasing their F-Type.
AND AWAY I GOOOOO!!!~
Apparently I.M. is having a showcase on their cars, the Jags and the Rovers. If you know me, you would know that I have a dislike for almost any form of
urban SUVs crossovers, so I’ll just be showing the Jags, mmmkay?
I have to say this though: I don’t know what to expect from a Jag. I know that Mr. Clarkson loves Jags. I believe that the Prime Minister of Britain is driving a Jag. I know that Jags are, in general, the blue-collar sisters of the Aston Martin.
Despite all this, Jags don’t seem to give me any form of emotional excitement in the same way that an Aston or a Ferrari does. That can be a good thing too actually…
The styling of the F-Type does not move me in the same way the DB9 does, but my God it looks handsome. From the side there is barely any hint of the car “bowing down”, that is, those bloody side swoops that shows the back of the car as higher than the front of the car. This feline is properly manly.
But not as manly as this though…
I’m telling you, if you thought the BMW 7-series was huge, wait ’till you get in front of this behemoth. Simply standing in front of it, it’s COLOSSAL presence just imposes itself on you. That massive nose grill along with those angry eyes… I was almost overwhelmed really.
Strangely enough, despite of how big it looks, sitting down at either the driver or passenger seats, there is not much headroom.
Now, I consider myself a Bruneian man of average height, 166 centimetres isn’t particularly short at all, so taller people might want to give this fact a consideration. Still, I like the fact that it doesn’t feel like I’m in a cabin that’s far too big for me, so this is actually a plus. It’s snug, I like it.
Now, the folks from Indera Motors were kind enough to start up the engine of the F-Type for me, and I was given the chance to savour the manly rawness of that supercharged V8. Unfortunately, I can’t upload it here. Maybe if I could upload on a Youtube channel or something… yeah… So anyway, here’s me thanking the folks from Indera Motors. Nice chaps. Those Jags made my Sunday a whole lot better.
Here ya go:
