Shagging is a very Scottish term. We always talked about shagging not fucking as that had another connotation and it was a real swear word.

Do you know what it is? It's that if you took the badges off it and asked me to guess what kind of car it is, I would straight away assume Rover. It's not quite as bad, but it reminds me of those Chinese copies of a nice car.

I'm tempted to suggest Jaguar "borrowed" at least some style cues from Alfa Romeo for the E-Type. Which starts to look plausible when you look at this:

Image

That is the 1952 Alfa Romeo Disco Volante Spider.

The hardtop version is a bit of an acquired taste, but chop the roof off to produce the above, and it's scintillating.

The E-Type came 9 years afterwards. The convertible version especially gives the game away in my view ... :mrgreen:

Image

Though if you want some serious plagiarism, take a look at the following two images. The first being the Ferrari 365 GTB Daytona, first unleashed in 1968:

Image

Now take a look at the Rover SD1, first appearing in 1977, and which, despite being a four seater hatchback, was obviously the product of shameless plagiarism of Ferrari's bodywork:

Image

To my mind, whoever was responsible for the bodywork of the SD1, was intent on ripping off as much of the Daytona as he could, without triggering a lawsuit from Ferrari. :)

Not necessarily, because both designs are strongly influenced by minimization of wind resistance, so the shape is less free to vary than without drag minimization. It's a bit like convergent evolution!
