Since it’s a Jag, pricing will stretch well into six figures for top trims. The Rolls-Royce Boat Tail may be the most expensive new car ever If you’re in the market for Jag’s slinky sports car this year, it looks like you’ll end up holding the keys to a machine with eight cylinders. The model’s smaller engines are being dropped.New to its lineup is the F-Type P450, which will be available in either rear- or all-wheel-drive. It’ll be powered by a 444-horsepower supercharged V8 that should sling the car to highway speeds from a standstill in about 4.5 seconds. Also on tap is 428 lb-ft of torque, all of which shows up for duty at just 2,500 rpm.Adding to the party are standard Configurable Dynamics, 20-inch wheels, and brakes that are larger than last year (380 mm front, 376 mm rear). Popping for all-wheel-drive on the P450 also brings the likes of gloss black trim on its aero addenda, plus unique split-spoke wheels and R-Dynamic badging. And, yes, the well-heeled can select from any of a dozen special-order SVO paint colours to assure your F-Type doesn’t look like the one your rival in the corner office brought home last week. COMMENTSSHARE YOUR THOUGHTS What’s that? Those figures aren’t enough to stir your British trousers? Then perhaps the F-Type R will be more your speed. Packing 575 ponies, its deploys an all-wheel-drive system to find itself at 60 mph (96 km/h) in just 3.5 seconds before running headlong into an electronic speed limiter which arrests the fun just shy of 300 km/h. The driver will probably get arrested long before that number, however.Both cars come with a Quiet Start feature, a bit of programming that prevents your neighbours from tut-tutting into their tea every time you fire up the supercharged V8 on a cold morning. Bond-villain good looks and a brand that’s impossible to say without grinning are also standard equipment. Buy It!

FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享On Tuesday, an ordinance passed in the Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly, tightening restrictions on residency requirements for those who run for public office. Previously, the residency requirement had only been 180 days prior to an election. Section 2 of the ordinance allows for more flexibility in the event of a residency challenge: “The other thing, though, is that, in existing code, there is no vehicle or no apparatus for somebody to challenge a person’s residency, a candidate’s residency. So, it’s a very clumsy thing to handle without that. If you look in the ordinance, you’ll find that in Section 2, it begins to talk about the way a challenge would take place, and that goes on for a couple of pages. That’s because the legal department has now established a way for that challenge to take place. So, that’s really the heart of this thing.” Ordinance co-sponsor, Assembly Member Brent Johnson: “This ordinance really does two things. It lengthens the duration, the resident’s duration from 180 days to a year. That’s pretty straight-forward.” The first section of the ordinance, 2020-01, moves to enact several changes for potential candidates within the district. The one consistent change is moving to a one-year residency requirement before filing for office, as well as being a qualified voter in the state of Alaska during that same duration. This qualifies for candidates for borough mayor, borough assembly, school board, and service area board. The ordinance passed with eight yes votes, zero no votes, and one absent vote.
