Thursday – Hubble Bubble…

You might not have noticed the twin sets of tailpipes peeping out from under the rear of the F-Type. If you are close enough to see them in the metal, you will definitely have heard them coming.

The old E-Type sported a beautiful pair, angled upwards and a joy to polish on a Sunday morning. Yes, I’ll admit to getting my cloth out for that!

Now the F-Type has joined the rank of sports cars which has an acoustic button for the exhaust system. You can read about the Porsche 911 and Aston Martin Vanquish equivalent elsewhere on the site.

Jaguar’s is on the centre console and it just ups the tempo, helping to spit and burble your journey away. I know some people don’t like it but it’s a great sound! Whoever the engineer was who came up with the idea deserves recognition.

While most cars are accoustically muffled for the sounds of silence, Jaguar uses sound to accentuate the benefits of a truly great car.
