Jaguar Brown's Lane Plant

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.
