Garage Queens: Ferrari F430 Spyder – East 54th St., NYC

September 15th, 2010 by Stu

This isn’t the first time a prancing horse has nestled its way into the primo parking space you see here. A silver 612 Scaglietti usually occupies the spot. Perhaps the owner traded the nose heavy V12 Scaglietti in for this sportier, mid engine V8 Spyder. Or maybe he owns them both and was feeling a little saucy today, what with the nice weather and all. Or maybe it’s a different owner altogether and parking lot management simply makes a habit of putting the good stuff out front.

Jaguar XF Supercharged – Mid Town East, NYC

February 9th, 2009 by Stu

XF replaced S-Type in the Jag line-up last year. Along with the current generation XK, this new sedan literally dragged Jaguar into thoroughly modern design. S-Type was certainly charming and attractive in a London gentleman sort of way, but people simply weren’t considering it when in the market for a mid size luxury sedan. The LED lighting effects seen here really catch the eye.
