High Performance Lincoln-Jaguar

The new Cadillac CTS-V has received a lot of good press lately, being
compared favorably with the BMW M series sports sedans. Presuming that
the Ford Motor Company wanted to enter this market niche, would
it be technically feasible to tune the existing Lincoln LS-Jaguar Type S
platform to achieve comparable performance, or would they be better
off to start with a new design?

Have you seen the S-Type R?
Pretty good place to start, if you ask me.

Hey Now!
I just saw a raod test comparison of the CTS and the S-R in , I think, Road & Track. Read it hanging out the newsstand this weekend. Basically, they said with the the S-Type you had to check the tach to see if your engine was running, but it really put some some numbers up when you pushed it; they still don't like the Jag gear shift lever. Nor did they like that it had an automatic! The CTS they didn't like because it has a Chevy Camaro engine that loped and gurgled at idle. They thought for the price, they should get more than a Camaro. They liked that it had a stick shift!
