While I understand the impracticality of the originals multi fuel turbines, I understand that the Williams folks are having some difficulty with the turbo 4 cylinder that is going to power this, when it comes to market.
May be just a bit ahead of it's time. But kudos to Jaguar for the high ambition. What a stunningly beautiful car (I feel like calling it a 'car' is an understatement!)! Those turbines are almost scarey looking! lol. Tell me this car won't get 'their' attention. It makes me even MORE proud to own a Jaguar. Even though mine is a '99, not a '12.
