Same, im not gonna say i wouldnt spend that much on it, because it looks absolutley fabulous, the best looking Jaguar, in a Long time, (Or possibly ever) its a gorgeous car.

If its pure performance were talking about based on price(Which Most ppl tend to look at)

0-60Mph 4.0s
0-100Mph 8.3s
0-186Mph 39.4s
1/4 Mile 12.2@123.4Mph

And its Track times are Meh, 1:14.4 Hockenheim, 1:23.2 Top Gear Track, Laguna Seca 1:42.9..

Granted it is heavy(4,005Lbs), But still, 550Bhp and thas what you get?

But thats only from a person only interested in pure speed(Which isnt me) But, at that price, id rather go for a 997.2 911 GT3, a ZO6, a GT-R, M5 etc for me anyway.

I just cant help but see a sense of fail in this car(As much as i dont want to admit it)

This car looks good, but at £101,725 Fully Done, or $138,670, And with its..Interesting track times and acceleration, would it be worth it? Fail? Or Achieved?

I personally wouldnt buy one for that price, but 550bhp for that isnt bad, it looks wonderful, but seems a bit pricey to me for what it can d, but thats only based on its performance. which i dont care about.
