Once again a VW Group product………
Anyway, a superb car & review, would be my daily drive if i had the coin, cannot think of anything better.
You can buy them for GBP35,000 in UK [2nd hand]
Till then, back to my NANO
Frugal One, you can’t buy the Speed version for 35,000 pounds, only the standard one and even then, you would be lucky to have a choice of even three different cars for that price and they would all have well over 100,000 miles on the clock.
The thing that I always like about this car is that somehow the Rolls Royce Phantom is currently styled to look like a car you should be driven in, not a car you should be driving but this is a drivers car and is styled that way. it’s almost as quiet and comfortable as the Rolls Royce Phantom too and I think it would take a lot for me to get a much, much more expensive RR over this fantastic car.
Fuel consumption is pretty impressive but like I’ve said before, love those wheels. I would still buy the coupe before this though as the standard Flying Spur is a very wafty car and I feel the Speed pack changes it too much, I’ve read the same thing in a lot of other reviews aswell.
Alex – At 400K do you really think the buyer of this car cares about fuel economy???
Actually Crouchy, yes. It’s not about being able to afford petrol, because even though everybody complains about it, I think it’s still very cheap for what it is and does but no one, no matter how rich wants bad range in a nice comfortable car. I would hate to go out for the day and have to fill the thing up five times and I don’t think many would want to.
its not that thirsty, the VE SS uses 14.4 l/100km and it produces less power and has alot less weight to pull around.
Good article, well written and simple non cliche’ed explanations giving both information and passion.
Rating A- (leaving room for you to improve ;-))
Thank you & keep up the standard.
