Jaguar's XK-E would have been a forgotten footnote in automotive history if Malcolm Sayer had been as abstract in his approach as Picasso was in some of his paintings.
No mfr is immune here; the 2010 Mustang refresh suffered somewhat from this too.
The Jaguar XKE is one of the absolute, all-time gorgeous sculpted automotive body designs....

Gorgeous sculpted design illuminated with a stunning stop-everything-and-stare color.
Give us a beautiful, sculpted 6th gen Camaro that stops you dead in your tracks, including the colors!
