The gaping gob front grille of modern cars deserves some bite…


Who was it that started the wide bonnet grille thing? I think originally it was a ‘nose’ that belonged to Aston Martin.

So you can imagine my absolute horror when Ford decided to copy it – across their entire range. Nightmare scenario.

Since then everybody has been at it. Head on, I’ve confused a Mondeo for a Vantage on more than one occasion.

The XF has the best shark-eyed headlights I’ve ever seen. Yet Jaguar too has succumbed to the gaping gob.

I’m amazed some enterprising accessory maker hasn’t come up with a set of teeth-like decals to really give a bonnet some bite…
