Here are three generations of the automotive art that is the one time classic British car marque - Jaguar. There is a recent trend to take vintage and classic cars like these and electrify there power. This is caused some controversy as many traditional automotive enthusiasts say it is taking the heart out of the car. They say they miss the smell of the fuel and the roar of the engine.

 My question is do we really need smoke and noise to love automotive art? Is a vehicle as much about its fine design lines? Its top speed? Its acceleration? Its precise engineering? In fact there are a whole new generation of electric supercars now on the market such as Aspark Owl which should satisfy automotive enthusiast. At least to look at and see perform.
