New car - Jaguar F-type V8

We've got this one at the moment. I'm very jealous of you, We were in a convoy of 5 cars last night and this by far sounded the best (If a little over the top)

Interior is seriously shocking tho!

Interior is fine if you spec them right. Most don't even have the performance seats!

It's a better cabin than an R8 but it's behind a 991/BMW offering.

It was this video which made the choice for me. Especially the section and noise from 1.15-1.30. It's a beautiful video and oddly put me off Italian racing red which up to that point was my fave colour. It's the only thing on sale today which is like my old TVR's.

This one has seats that the leather looks like it's from a 1990's car. They're very tail happy!!

I thought the interiors were nice, more interesting that a lot of cars. The xf/xj interiors were raved about also.

Don't you think the AWD V8 which they do now will be better and more use able?
It wasn’t traction limited.

I was using it for my commute from London to MK every day. It was doing 34mpg, awesome!

But

Pin it off the Cranfield junction to the M1 and you’ll be merging at over 160mph.

Pull out to pass traffic and you’ll pull in at over 120mph without any fuss.

Take it on a B road for a blast and find in most cases it’s as wide as the lane.

It all got a bit, I dunno, unexciting.

I did 11k miles in it and lost £11k on it. So it wasn’t too bad really.

It did look lovely though, far better than the face lift.

I don't see many V8 S models.
They normally are the R model whenever I see them about.

Love these cars though! Sound incredible too

Sub 30k now!
Not bad. I thought the AWD version would sell well because they were so snappy. That V8 I drove was mental out a junction.

The sound. I still chase v8s down on the motorway to hear them, such an impressive noise and bravo to the owner for buying.

A black one passed me a few months back around 80mph and I heard it coming and it passed with this epic tune.
