    What price did you pay?


    When did you buy the car?

    January 2011

    Did you get a good deal and why?

    Yes, because not many people can afford this vehicle so the used prices are a great buy.

    Is there any special reason why you bought this car?

    Fantastic piece of kit. Great looks but not over the top for my profession.

    What was the dealer like?

    Very good. No sales pitch. The vehicle did the talking. I've had the vehicle 2.5 years and never had any trouble.

  • Driving it

    5 out of 5 5.0

    What's it like to drive?

    Blistering Acceleration that blows off most Porsches. Excellent braking. When going down hill, the gearbox automatically drops the gears down. Sport mode is a wow and grip is excellent.

    What's it like to park?

    Breeze in the park with the front and rear sensors. No need to turn your head and the passenger door mirror dips down so you can see the kerb.

  • Living with it

    5 out of 5 5.0

    Have you had any problems with the car?

    No. But as soon as I bought the car I took it to my close friend who builds all gearboxes, as this vehicle has a plastic sump which distorts with heat. I had a metal sump put on and changed the internal filter. Otherwise the ZF gearbox is bullet proof !

    What's most practical about your car?

    Road handling, excellent mpg for a 4.8 V8 and internal condition based service alerts that tell you what needs servicing.

    Favourite gadget, option or accessory?

    Speech recognition, bluetooth and sport mode.
