As you’d know, Christmas is just around the corner, so ’tis the season…for yet more fantastical car-themed sleighs for Santa to cart his bounty of gifts across the sky in comfort, speed and style. And it’s Jaguar that kicks off the craze this year with its new Jaguar F-Sleigh, revealed in ice sculpture form at the launch of Jaguar Land Rover’s 2016 merchandise collection in London.

As the name implies, St Nicholas’ new ride is based on the F-Type Convertible, but Coventry’s finest has obviously been outfitted with skates instead of the road car’s massive wheels.

Also equipped are an open luggage compartment for all those nicely-wrapped presents and jet turbines to “generate Jaguar’s renowned supercharged performance through the night sky,” whatever that means. A red nose embossed with the Growler emblem adds a touch of Rudolph to proceedings.

So, if Jaguar keeps harping on that it’s good to be bad, perhaps Santa Claus is saying by riding in the F-Sleigh that it’s nice to be naughty? Ho ho ho!
