    Sounds like an amazing car! I want to swap jobs with you Anthony!

    Can you guys post some interior pics?

    David,

    The gallery has now been posted and there are two interior shots, but within 24 hours part two – the road test will be posted with more interior shots.
    Cheers

    Friend has a photo of one of these being unloaded from a plane at Sydney airport the other day, look stunning.

    Stunning car, not sure about the blue or red though!!
    would look good in a Bright White or a Mean Gun metal grey!!

    • Peter

      the blue is growing on me. I saw the XK-R in black a few days ago, it looks much more menacing than it used to. I think I’d take it in any colour

        Not too many of em around so could’ve been mine (if in Melbourne)

        The styling is too over the top for my taste. can’t get into the overlap on the front bumper of the spoiler , but then I’m very much a fan of the smooth Aston/Jag GT shape which has been lost a bit here.

        Awesome car no doubt , but I’d still have gone for the XKR over the R-S. I’ possibly prefer the new headlights on mine but the old style is growing on me still.

        TO my eyes the XKR-S looks much better in the gun metal grey as it smooths out the lines a bit.

        • brent

          lots of typos above I’m afraid but you get the picture. I drive an XKR and due to my more conservative taste am struggling with the XKR-S a bit.

          • Peter

            mmm, I’ve got the XF, I’ve mentioned before you make me jealous but hey, I’ve got kids…I agree the XKR-S isnt as pretty, but I’m a bit of a fan of the GTR and its over the top weapon styling, so the XKR-S tickles my fancy too. I suppose I should mention I have the paramount aftermarket exhaust on the XF, so there is a fair amount of yobbo in me.

        • brent

          Haha – not much yobbo in me Peter , so there you go.

          Nothing wrong with an XF mate – right up there when it comes to a family car. My previous car (Merc CLK 500) was rare in that it was a coupe with 2 genuine rear seats , but in the 3 years I owned it I carried passengers very rarely , so when it came to a decision on the Jag I just said “#$#& it ” and went for what I wanted LOL.

      The blue looks a little too smurf-like to me. But I’d happily take one if it was offered my way.

    • Acfsambo

      A good metallic grey would look awesome, or even bright pearl white, but i would have it in any colour if i had to

    • Andrew

      Yeah, I’m not too sure about blue either. It’s a nice colour in itself, but I think this shade of blue belongs to the Germans – Porsche and Audi.

  • Ric

    it looks like new indian owners of JAGUAR ‘TATA Motors’…are doin well to keep the -trend- going.

  • Shak

    CA, thank you for that little video clip. Made my day…

  • http://www.roberts.com.ph Roberts

    The front view does looks like an Aston Martin, and the rear-wing/spoiler is the same as the new Nissan Skyline R35.

    What a car! I think this is pretty close to the best combination of GT/Supercar available????

    Now where do I find $340K

  • Luke

    According to your specs tab:
    Power to Weight Ratio 6000kW/kg
