@GirlintheTrunk: 2014 Jaguar F-Type

@GirlintheTrunk: 2014 Jaguar F-Type

Last night I had the opportunity to check out the 2014 Jaguar F-Type, which lead to the inevitable question: How many Ciminillos will fit in the trunk? I didn't think they'd actually let me check it out. But they did. And their social media team was on hand to take a vine. Due to the narrow and shallow nature of the trunk, I'd have to say that really only 1 Ciminillo would fit comfortably.

 

Base price: $69,000

Cargo volume: 7 cubic-feet

Ciminillos: 4

  • Having just seen some German car show on channel 20.3 on a Hyundai i30 with so many "liters of luggage capacity with the seat back down," what is the GIIT equivalent?

  • In reply to jack:

    i'll have to consult my "team" of engineers on that one ... litres always lose me. :)

  • In reply to Jill Ciminillo:

    From when Chevy was selling a 427 said to be a 7 liter, a liter is 61 cubic inches. There are 1728 cubic inches to a cubic foot. So, then all you have to figure out is how many cubic feet is one Cimenllo.

    In the case of the F-Type, the boot is approximately 200 l.

    my friend who did the GITT measurement says: "After careful calculation, 42.475L = 1 ciminillo"

  • In reply to Jill Ciminillo:

    So the calculation doesn't agree with the demonstration. I guess you need to find 3 more Ciminillos.

    There is also the Archimedes method of dunking you in a full pool and see how much water is displaced.

  • Also, I found the license plate that the guy put over the real one after you entered the trunk highly suspicious, especially if another word were added to it.
