Summary

5 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
Another daft question in my opinion.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
Neighbours think its loud, family think its a bit pointless, friends think its awesome.

Would you buy this car again and why?
I like to try different cars so i doubt I would buy another, I would highly recommend it though. It gives both a superb drive and a big rush of excitement is just a click of a switch and press of a pedal away. Two cars in one. Its a super car bargain, thanks Jaguar !

What are you likely to buy next?
I cant think what to buy to follow this Jag.

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
To drive this car in standard drive mode is effortless, fairly comfortable and pleasing. Switch it to dynamic mode and put your foot down and it's seriously fast. More power than any of my previous cars Wheel spin in first three gears and noise like a nascar starting grid.

What's it like to park?
Parking is ok, there's a rear camera and a clear screen. Watch those alloys though !
