Jaguar Says Maserati Ghibli Is Full of Hot Air

Their first "victim" was Mercedes. A few months separated the German commercial for Magic Body and Jaguar's response, which showed a chicken being eaten by… a jaguar of course. That showed wit and style on their part.

Their next stunt is a blunt and simple blow to the head, but it's still despicably funny. One of their recent Twitter posts makes fun of Maserati and their commercial for the Ghibli sedan, aired during the Super Bowl. We'll let you read it first:

According to the dictionary, the Ghibli is a hot dry southerly wind of North Africa. Well there's your problem Maserati, you named your car after wind. Smart!

It's good to be bad, isn't it Jaguar?

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s.
