This thread is absurd. The XKE is a beautiful piece of design and that's about it. It was never fast, it never handled well and it never stopped well. In the 60s, magazines verified the 0-60 times of the 4.2 to be a bit over 7 seconds. However, it was later found that these test cars were specially set up by Jaguar themselves to give better than normal performance (I'm not joking, a quick google will verify this). Now while not exactly a b-road bomber, the 2012 Camaro is going to be faster, easier to drive, handle better, stop better and steer better. The E-type was never meant to be a legitimate sports car or roadster, it was a GT car.
