Jaguars (again!)

Thinking I had nearly all the day to myself on Thursday, I sloped off to the Jaguar dealership in Coventry where a delightful young man took me for a test drive of a Jaguar XJ.

i.e. like the one in the picture on the left.

I have to say that this vehicle just floated along. talk about waft... this wafted in the finest style. It is a large car, but it doesn't feel like it. You barely have to do more than think about changing direction and you have. I drove it for about 15 miles on mainly country lanes and it managed 35 mpg. I guess at a steady 70 it would do rather more. I shall now count my pennies and see if I can afford not to have one, but before I do, I need to test drive and XF.

Lucky me!
