The Jaguar F Type's headlights are modelled on Darth Vader's TIE fighter

Speedmonkey visited the Jaguar factory today to see the F Type being made.  More of that later but for now here's a fantastic nugget of information.

Wayne Burgess, Jaguar designer, modelled the F type's headlights on Darth Vader's TIE fighter from Star Wars.

Have a look at the picture.  You can certainly see the resemblance.  Brilliant work, Wayne.
