    I’m a Jag nut so call me bias but this is a instant classic!

    im 13 and it would have to be my Favorite Sports car!!!!!!!!!11

    Unfortunately I doubt that will ever [seriously] be in the market for this kind of car but I thought I would add my two cents worth anyway: something just doesn’t look quite right about the front of this car – the head lights could have been done better or something. I have always thought this about the XK models.

    That’s all.

    Wooowww…it’s verry amazing. Cool…

    Top Gear did a really good review on the XKR a couple of years ago; it is on youtube and is worth checking out if you have ten minutes to spare.

    The car is looking great and tempting to have one. Really thats great looking and all the features are the best. Even the images are telling how much hot it is..

    Don’t know if it just me or not, but I would have a Maserati Gran Turismo MC Stradale over this in a heartbeat. Think it is a much more cohesive looking thing, doesn’t so much look like just a wing and sticker special. Mind you it is significantly down on power….

    Why is it left hand drive?

    • http://www.caradvice.com.au Anthony Crawford

      Most of the international launches in Europe involve LHD cars as apart from the UK, all other markets on the Continent are left handers. Once you’ve driven them a few times, many folks prefer them to RHD.

  • springbrookian

    WoW!!!!! why wont the bank accept my promise to pay for it when i drop off this mortal coil.

    I bloody well want one……….

    For the Price I wish the rear didn’t remind me of a Ford XR8 FPV. Having said that i still want one.

    This is one of the best designed cars in the auto industry. I have seen such designed cars in rare cases. Its really looking awesome and has wonderful features in it. If car lovers see this car definitely they will book one immediately.

    a good car but not the best in its class(thats 911/ R8 MONEY) unlike the new 2012 xfr that thing is amazing!!!

  • dc

    To mawzi – 911 / R8 money? Maybe a R8 V8. The R8 V10 starts at $150k. The 911 Carerra S after similar options will be about the same price or more and it will still be ugly. The Porsche that it competes with is the panamera turbo and I believe that starts at about $150k and is still ugly.
