    Gotta play with the XKR while I can!

    Yesterday, they dropped off a 510 hp Jaguar XKR coupe ... just in time for the foot of snow they predict will begin falling later today. So, I'm heading out for a bit to flog the Jag - while I still can.

    I'm betting by this time tomorrow, it'll be hopelessly entombed in snow.

    Lawks 'a mussy, Eric, how you suffer for your art. Hope the snow holds off for a few hours and that the heater, sorry - air conditioning/climate control system - works.

    Ken.
    So true!

    The car has immense power - the sensation is like the roll-on of a big commercial jet with an ex-military pilot at the controls. You feel this huge swell of thrust as you ease into the throttle - and boom! The car just goes.

    There is a straight stretch of road a few miles before the turn-off to our place. I let Jag loose and was at 140-plus (from around 80) in literally seconds. The car moves!

    And it is a looker, too!
