As activity seems rather quiet on here right now, I thought I would add a car blog in Glynsky’s absence.
My little gem, a Jaguar, parked up in the garage most of the time and brought out for fun and outings etc., is an XKR 4.2 Special Edition.
Interior leather is ivory with two tone dash and doors. The electric roof is blue, to go with the pacific blue body.
I don’t know if the Jag hits any spots for others out there, but I do know Glynsky’s Papa had a taste for the Jags. The interior is quite lavish for a performance sports car, with walnut dash and all the added comfort items. In a couple of years or so this will class as a “classic” and increase in value. Just love the older body shape, but that’s just me!
Performance wise it is a 420bhp, 306KW, 4,196cc supercharged V8 petrol engine, driving rear wheels via 6spd automatic gearbox. Max speed: 155mph, (limited by computer), but does 0-62mph: 4.9 secs, which isn’t bad. It certainly thumps one into the back of the seat when the throttle is put to the floor! For anyone into the technical stuff, 6250 RPM, engine torque in lbs.ft 413 & 4000 RPM, Cremona 20″ alloys, DSC-Dynamic Stability Control, High performance ‘alcon’ brake callipers and discs, ABS + EBD + EBA.
So for those other motor heads out there, not just into Italian cars, hope this cheers up your day.
Off into the wind.
