FORD Kills Jaguar

Ford is going to close its Coventry Jaguar plant.
"The shock announcement came as Ford confirmed it would end production of Jaguar cars at a plant in Coventry, England with the loss of 1000 jobs because of weak market demands"
This is on top of pulling out of Formula One next year.
Ford spent $258million this year on Formula one. Ferrari spent $860 million.
Mark Webber will drive for Williams-BMW next year.
So, another famous car dies.
MMMM badge our G220 as a Jaguar!
