What do you guys think about this record?

Surely the baby Jag (although a R model) can't be the fastest car sold in SA?

No, definitely not...just a very good marketing ploy grabbed with both hands that is sure to piss off the competition like Porsche to no end..!

It not only goes like stink but is an absolute beauty and sounds like a beast :mrgreen:

I'm sure it's a great car, and it is a personal favorite of mine, but there must have been other production cars run faster in South Africa.

You guys are aware of the high speed testing the Audi/VW Group (incl Bugatti and Porsche) does in the Northern Cape, and the test track they have near Pofadder?

Beautiful car. I know someone on the medical/emergency standby crew who goes up there quite often. They very strict, no cell phones or any communication while in the field.

My brother in law has a similar car. same engine but convertible. It takes lots of practice to drive. Just too much power. Its a daily driver except in winter.
Also a gas guzzler of note.
