My Former Jaguar V12 Convertible spotted in a Dior Commercial with Natalie Portman

Dior Commercial

  Dior has a new perfume ad with Natalie Portman and my former car plays a part in the commercial.   I used to own a dark blue/tan Jaguar XJS V12 Convertible that was a fun car to drive around town.   The V12 engine was very smooth and was a joy to drive but I was told these engines were prone to overheating and other major issues.   I did not experience of these problems during my ownership.   It was re-painted Dior’s signature color for the commercial and is driven by Natalie Portman.   I am glad it got a new lease on life and will be part of the Dior marketing campaign hopefully for a long time.  It will be making a trip  around the world for more of the marketing campaign.  I think it was all for the best.
