The leaping jaguar is the most prestigious hood ornament on cars, easily recognized, and looked at with awe.
The Jaguar Leaper has been missing in the recent models. Several theories are out there to justify this omission – safety (protruding element), technical (interferes with the new bonnet mechanism), and brand repositioning. For me, all these are unconvincing arguments. A Jag without the jag is no Jag, right?
