There's been a lot of rage about the new Dodge Charger SRT HellCat on the market, boasting power, and speed, but some car owners prefer a kitty that is a bit more softer, purrs quieter, and is a bit more luxurious, a "Fancy Feline" if you will.  So for all of you classy cat owners, Jaguar unveils its quick, sleek and unbelievable new 2016 EX.  Rumored to be outfitted with both 380-hp and 340-hp engines it will also come standard with an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission.   EX pounces from 0-60 in 4.9 seconds beating out the BMW 335i and the Audi S4, roaring its way to a top speed of 155 mph.

The car itself will be riding on a largely aluminum chassis with a double-wishbone front suspension. According to Jag, its new sedan will be its first car to arrive with electric power-assisted steering.  It also takes advantage of it’s sister company, Land Rover, in both power and technology with it’s Discovery Sport infotainment system.

Jaguar pulled out all the stops in body design, creating more sleek and luxurious appearance for the new model.  “Our mission was to create an exciting and dynamic design clearly reflecting the XE’s positioning as a serious driver’s car,” said Jag’s design boss, Ian Callum. "The cab-rearward proportions and tight packaging achieve that and give the XE the appearance of movement even when it's standing still. It bears a strong family resemblance to the F-Type and will stand apart in the crowd.”   Well done.  We're very excited for a test drive.   Here Kitty, Kitty...

Find Quality Touch Up Paint

Order touch up paint on-line!

All touch up paint is not created equal! The generic paints you buy at auto part stores will likely NOT match your vehicle’s paint exactly. Believe it or not, even the OEM dealers usually stock “close enough” colors. We recommend PaintScratch.com since their high quality paint is freshly made, they custom mix each order for you upon receipt, and they offer a color match guarantee.
