Don’t worry about it.
My 2000 S-Type has the name Jaguar on the engine which was made by Ford.
For that matter, pre-war models, when the company was called SS Cars and Jaguar was only a model name, had SS on the engines which were made by Standard Motor Co.

Very well put Frank,

I too love the pin your head back as your eyes move to the sides of your head power, However, I have yet to drive anything as divine as a Jaguar infused V12. The V12 power delivery doesn’t come on as a slap in the forehead and hang on, but more of a sense of consistent urgency all the way to redline. Civilized.

And I once saw a photo of a Corvair with a front mounted (!) Jaguar V12. Now that took some serious re-engineering.

I follow along on one of many Faecestube channels.
