Fell to bits and almost made me do the same!
Well, I wouldn't be exaggerating if I said almost everything went wrong.
I bought it second-hand at a Melbourne Jag dealer, and in the 5 years I had it, it was a complete bomb and a bitter disappointment.
I was locked into a repayment scheme with the credit union, so I had to suffer with it until 1988 when it was paid-off.
The problems were mainly due to bad parts used in the manufacture of the car. For example, the entire dashboard blacked out and nothing worked except starting, all because of a faulty Lucas fusebox.
I would rather not go into further details about this nightmare. Suffice to say, I believe in "Forgive and forget"!
It was only suitable for 2 people inside. Yes, I was well-aware of this when I bought it. I never needed the back seats for anything, anyway.
Having said that, the cabin was absolutely luxurious and beautifully thought-out. It was a joy to sit in.
The looks of the thing were stunning (when I could bear to look at it!).
It performed better than any car I've driven, before or since.
Handling was not what you'd expect from an expensive GT. It had a lot of understeer.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
