Overview

"Fantastic car, a pleasure to drive, limitless power on tap"

Exterior and Interior

Outside, those sweeping curves and the tuned exhaust make the silver car with chrome mesh front grills a real head-turner. This is prestige motoring for a low purchase price. Running cost a little higher than the super minis, but you swap all that 'plastic' for wood, leather and an almost silent cabin where you can listen to your music or have a conversation without competing with wind and road noise. If you can afford an average of 24 mpg then this car is for you.

Performance and Economy

Performance - faultless, sure footed a true super car. These are restricted to 155 mph which means anything below that is well within capability. Not just acceleration and cruising but also braking and stopping power too. As above over three years I've averaged 24mph (thanks iphone app!) and other running visits as expected as things begin to age.

Like to Drive

Simply this car is a joy to drive, fully auto with 6 forward gears there's no jolt on gear change. The seats are plush and with the quiet cabin and the premium music system along with the dual zone climate control there's all the comfort you could ask for, under the bonnet the 300 Bhp v8 purs along below 50mph and if you put your foot down at the lights, then there's nothing to keep up with you and you here that fantastic throaty v8 growl. <

Faults and Repairs

No faults over the 3 years you wouldn't expect, things like anti roll bar replacement and one wheels speed sensor been replaced at a good jag independent costs about £200 each time. Otherwise that's it.
