Folks I am 6'2 220lbs, if you have my dimensions don't buy - you will always be uncomfortable in the bucket seats. The car has a very attractive exterior, and the engine will blow anything away in its class, but lets face it folks this is a super ford, and everyone knows it. Remember folks if you drive, and spend time in the car, prepare to hire a massage therapist for your back and thighs. I can't wait to sell the damn car. Just my thoughts.

Well, it's been a couple of months since I picked up this 'motor coach' -- that's right, it is not just a car, but a true 'motor coach'. Power, speed, quick feet and sure footing! I had a 2002 Mercedes S500, Sport Sedan - - no comparison! That was a mere car! This is something more! The heads turn and they stare when this motor coach is in their presence. This model is not for the shy and certainly not for the small ego! You have to have driving passion and pride to get in and out this joy!

I have had Mercedes CLs for the past 10 years. My last one, a 2002 CL600, was in the shop more than in my garage. I decided to try the JAG. Being a retired pilot I wanted performance over comfort so I opted for the Super V8. WOW!!! What a car. Great performance along with an amazing ride. No mechanicals up to this point. Highly recommend.

Use this car as both a weekend car and
my driver takes me to work in it during
the week. Great features, lovely
woodwork. SUPER FAST SuperV8! SATNav
EASY TO USE! Comftorable Ride! After
owning XKR's I know Jags to be well
built machines. I have no doubt my
SuperV8 will be!

Wow!!! This beauty pulls like a loco.
Glides along like silk knickers on a
highly polished bonnet.Comfy seats
unlike the old model, feels like a
Merc, with great handling and much
improved suspension. The Sat Nav is
the best I've used, just tap in the
post code and away you go, and it
stays with you if you alter your
course, unlike others which demand you
to 'U' turn. Lovin'it so far after 500
miles, and I've still got my driving
licence! Luck I guess!! My only
concern is the build quality, the
bodywork feels a bit flimsy...a bit
like a coke can..well it is made of
aluminium! great for performance, but
how would hold up in a smash?
