First... Ford doesn't build a GT350.

They build a GT, or Boss 302, or GT500.

Secondly, the Shelby-built GT350 is a joke, and way over-priced for the ugly that you get from it. A complete disgrace to the amazing original GT350.

Thirdly, that color is attrocious, so I wouldn't draw an equivalency on that aspect.

Fourthly, and most important.... There is a gulf (hint... blue, gulf... get it? ) of difference between a Ford, based on a chassis that enters the market around 20K,

...and a Jaguar, designed by a master, Ian Callum, and built to a much, much higher standard. Basic architecture similarities may exist being front engined 5 liter DOHC V8s, driving the rear wheels, but in terms of execution and detail, they are not similar, which is why they aren't priced similarly.

And frankly, I love the new headlights' sleeker shape, in comparison to the current ones that look like an odd state of permanent surprise, somewhere between round and triangular on the sides.
