News on the TV here is that Jag may get sold to a Far Eastern or Chinese Company.

It's an Interesting thought. I think the British Gov't may block any attempts to lift and shift Jaguar but I think it would be an excellent buy for a company like SAIC. Jaguar had great engineers, a great luxury brand, and lot's of potential. With additional Chinese factory capacity and a injection of Cash to develop new Models then Jaguar could be the "ultimate" luxury car brand for China.

If I were a buyer I'd try and buy Aston and Land Rover too...

Considering the level of fit in finish found in Jags (X-Type aside), their price is befitting. And if you can find a single part of the Sonata that looks like a Jag, I'll personally retract my statement.

lol jaguar and hyundai ?

Muahahahahahahah !
how can you even compare it !

Hyundai = ugly cheap cars ( relatively ) / sometime reliable but still ugly
c'mon ! give me one model from Hyundai that looks like 2005-2006 car

maybe the Coupe or Tribeon is but its a sports car
The current elantra sucks and its interior is cheaper than some Cherys
the new Accent is acceptable but its sister Kia Rio is alot much better

I am not into SUVs so I dont know a thing about the Santafe or whatever its called

Hyundai ATOS , c'mon I am seriously positive that most chiense cars are better than this one .

Hyundai Sonata - even an old Camry or Accord still looks better , infact the Chery Eastar looks similar !

Hyundai AZERES or whatever its called , its hyundai plan to make a luxury car , Havent seen it in person to judge , but from the exterior its still looks like luxurified ( yes i know i made that up ) elantra .

Two companies expressed their interests in Jaguar so far.

Renault : Wants to sell Nissans rebadged as Jaguars.
Hyundai : Wants to sell its new high-end luxury trio rebadged as Jaguars.

The asking price is $3~4 billion, which is well beyond Chinese budget.

If I wanted someone to buy it, it would be BMW not Renault & Hyundai.
GM : About to go bankrupt
Ford : About to go bankrupt and trying to sell Jaguar
Toyota : Got Lexus.
Renault/Nissan : Renault wanted to buy Jaguar, but has since moved onto GM takeover instead.
Honda : Not clear of their intentions.
Hyundai : Presently the most aggressive Jaguar suiter. Need the Jaguar brand for its new luxury car line up.
DCX : Got its own problems to deal with, just not as severe as GM and Ford.
BMW : Got burned($6 billion) by its previous British holdings, MG Rover. Unlikely.

First person ever to say this to me was a Ford employee, they were internally upset that they felt the sonata EF was a copy of the jag. At the time I thought they were on a different planet, but with that in mind, if you look again at the sonata you can see what they mean, especially at the back.

That's just a concept car that was showed some years ago.....

And I think the tiburon exterior was influenced by this concept car.

Some sources say Hyundai is developing RWD version sedan and sports car. Some spy shot,which posted by hater, has been shown on the net for a while and described as RWD. But I haven't seen the sports car spy shot yet. I guess that's just own thought of hater.

And this is the face lifted version of tiburon 2007 version

(Did you know this 2007 tibi was shown in the chinese motor show for the frist time? :D )

Hater, the RWD Hyundai coupe looks good. Is that a real prototype or a 'chop?
Thats a real concept car. I saw it when it was at the Adelaide Motor show here a few years ago. Nice looking car I might add.

I don't think Hyundai will go after Jaguar~~

GAZ after Jaguar

Hyundai after Jaguar

From Ford's perspective, GAZ makes a better buyer than Hyundai simply because GAZ is not a real automaker and wouldn't present a threat, especially in the US market, as long as GAZ can come up with money....
One of the korean news said, Hyundai is not going after the premium brand at least not now. Actually, they were considering the premium brand like Lexus or Infiniti with the RWD car, which has the project name of BH.

But, due to the high cost demand from establishing the necessary network to the new brand, they decide to improve the brand image of Hyundai with BH. And they also want to build the basement for the premium brand by BH.

According to the news, it seems like BH's bench marking model is BMW5 series. They're currently working on new 4.5L engine,which they hope it provides a similar or better performance than BMW 4.5L engine(I doubts...:lol:). I think the sedan picture that was posted by hater is BH.
I heard it will be available 1 or 2 years later.

And in addtion to HCD8 (the hyundai concept car), AXLE is right. I found the video clip that the car was actually moving... although I thought it was another dummy for the display.

ps does anyone have the video clip of chinese cars? It'll be really appriciate if you can post some links for those.... :D
