Bought the car on a whim as I'd sold mine and had money burning a hole in my pocket... Picked it up and filled the tank with V Power fuel... the numbers on the pump just kept on going and going but eventually stopped at £91.
It's a monster, 400bhp on tap from the 5.0l V8 and the noise is infectious, so infectious that I had the rear backboxes (4 of) cut off and straight pipes installed instead which made it sound pretty much like Satan's own car!
In the short time I owned it I only ever managed a paltry 26mpg on a motorway, cruise on, downhill ! The worst mpg I saw was 8, it may have gone lower but I wasn't looking at the dash at that point!
The rear end slides nicely when you want it, and can catch you unaware when you don't! The traction button may as well have a skull and cross bones on it as it is certainly a button of descending doom!!
Snow... Don't even bother taking it out anywhere near the white stuff, you'll either get stuck in it on Christmas Day (yes I did) or you'll just die, in a bush, but you will be very comfortable in the nappa leather seats...
Would I have another one? Hell yeah!!!
Awesome power and refinement. Huge urgency when the 'sport' button is pressed. Definitely not for the faint-hearted. The gold of Midas required to run the car but it is an intoxicating drive and well worth it. Understated & comfortable but with supercar performance: the ultimate 'Q' car? The sound of the V8 above 4000 revs really is something else....the sound & the fury. If you're interested in cars you really ought to own one of these cars, at least for a short time, but buy with your eyes wide open as you'll spend £2k (at least) per year maintaining it.
Amazing V10, stupendously fast estate car that almost sneaks under the radar, looks like any big bmw estate but has 507bhp. Love the way it goes, stops & turns even with 4 people & 2 dogs but HATE the fuel consumption. 12mpg in the city, 18 on a run, single figures when stretching her legs. 204mph flat out though so what do you expect?
This car was exactly what I was looking for a great family estate car with bags of room and amazing performance. The dealers description of the car was spot on and would happily use them again.
