Most Jaguar enthusiasts know that the historic Jaguar Brown's Lane factory has fallen victim to the wrecking ball, with current production now dispersed to Solihull, Halewood and Castle Bromwich . The Jaguar-Daimler Heritage museum, however, is still on the Coventry site.
Our friends at Google Maps have included photos of the former assembly plant during it's destruction. I was poking around Brown's Lane (figuratively speaking) trying to see what was left at the time of the photo shoot and I spotted a rather gaudy XK8 in the parking lot. It is either one of the "Shaguars" used in the Austin Powers flick or a close approximation of it.
I'm all about the Union Jack, but that's a bit much- even for me.
