  • Chip still remains my favorite designer, if I only had the money! Another win.

  • If one has the money, it is easier to improve a great design, than actually construct it from the beginning, as money is always the problem in every machine original construction. They used series 3 seats which aren't original for that car, so why not have nicely design headrests also. I have no qualms over keeping things original or not, you do it or you don't, so long as the design is palatable to the original. The wheels therefore even having the original look and a work of art aren't practicable in my view, as they are wider because the suspension has been reduced in width to accommodate them back to front 6" and 4" respectively, is this wise?. I would have gone for designing MAG wheels in a thicker round spoke design, like the old Minilite and why not a modern Moto-Lita Mark Five Wood Rim steering wheel or Momo, like the Race at Ø350mm for example or design ones own? ... love the colour though!

  • Looks amazing although I have to say that the originals look better, sorry. Those wheels also look terrible, too big and too much dish.

  • Amazing Car..As always Dr, Foose has sculptured a masterpiece. Not quite my idea of perfect but almost: There seems to be to much emphasis on the wheels and fender wells (the revile) is to high, shows to much of the much to tall wheels. Also call it a roadster call it a Cobra, call it whatever you want but a car with out a roof in an incomplete car. My last critique isn't a critique its a hope that under the bonnet lurks the heart of a predator. hopefully some similar arrangement as the XK-R. Either a supercharged motor or better yet a Twin turbo set up would be lovely, a given. This should not be a paper tiger this is a custom Jaguar, a Foose custom E-Type Jaguar. A Bella Carnivora.

  • The wheels are bold , but new and different scares people. This car is stunning when you take in the build as a whole. It won't be long before the copy cats get to work.

  • I can appreciate all the hours and skill it must have taken to produce this car. Sadly,the result is not an E type,It's just an Americanised fantasy car.The original with it's wonderful classic lines was and still is the most beautiful car ever made.It didn't need this treatment.

  • There's no doubet that you're monster on this essuo, with all my respect sir, probably the best from the best as all your team works like family. And I've been following you since the tv series Overhoulin. I was wondering if suddenly some guy from anywhere in the world, decide to send you his own car to make jis dream become reality, would you do the job? Thank you!

  • Too much wheel, too big. It looks funny, drop an inch or 2. Just because you can doesn't mean that you should

  • Despite the craftsmanship, the original is one of the all-time greats. Even the master cannot improve on. Like putting bulging biceps on Venus .
