Summary:

Wickedly awesome.

Faults:

The only problems with the car have been minor, such as rear view mirror switches, heating/cooling vents, and antenna.

General Comments:

This car is wickedly awesome.

I had a larger exhaust installed and the car now sings like a true 12 cylinder.

The car is incredibly fast, both off the line and at higher speeds. Stomping the throttle at 70 MPH will result in car occupants suddenly being pushed deeply into their seats.

Built by Jaguar and JaguarSport, the modified suspension results in wonderful handling. It corners flat and smoothly.

Despite its incredible bulk (more than 4,000 pounds), it handles well, is quick and responsive, and can keep up with most cars on the road today.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
