So The Jaguar XF SportBrake DID Come To The US After All

Came, shot a commercial, and then flew back to England. Don't let the security scanners hit ya on the way out, guvnuh!

Dirty, rotten, limey bastards.

That D pillar is fantastic. The blacked out pillar + flourish of chrome that looks so odd on the XJ is just perfect here.

What a nasty trick: There's a flash of a Capita NAS snowboard at 0:28, and all I could think of was the Land Rover version of NAS: North American Specification. Foreshadowing maybe?

Interesting association. I had freezeframed that to see what it was.
