Thanks, Wilf. That is the only car I've seen that could end up replacing my XFR!! I'm not sure the 1988 version is worth the extra £20K though.

Dare I say it.... I think if I was after that size of car, I'd be plumping for a Model Y Performance. :confused: :rolleyes:

Faster, cheaper to buy and run, less to go wrong. 😳 Sorry guys.

The Y looks hideous though. I’m no SUV fan, but the proportions of the Y just looks terrible.

I wonder how it compares to the Range Rover Sport SVR?
He does mention that it's better because the Range Rover is almost "hampered" by its need for off-road capability, something the F-Pace doesn't have.

The new RRS is too heavy for its own good - more than two and a half tonnes.

Ah, I missed that part in the video.

Maybe not a bad thing I guess as it gives people the choice of a powerful SUV that either has better on-road handling or off-road handling. I wonder how balanced they are against each other, as in would the RRS do off-road better to the same level as the F-Pace would do on-road better?

I suspect the RRS would do off-road very much better than the F Pace, which seems to be optimised for on-road rather than off.
I found it interesting that Harry thought it a better drive than the twice-as-expensive Aston DBX. And the Cayenne Turbo. He aso very much liked Pivi Pro - about time JLR got an ICE system right. :rolleyes:

Given the funds, I would go for one, but probably not the silly extra £20k special edition. No BEV would get a look-in against V8 sounds like that.

I like Pivi Pro. It's not perfect, but it's so much better than ICTP.

Was surprised at the Cayenne Turbo, I almost bought one (older one) but seemingly at around 100k miles the air suspension is almost guaranteed to go and cost mega bucks to fix.

There's something rather hypnotic about such a large vehicle moving so fast off the line along with that lovely soundtrack.

I love the way he completely wrote the original F-Pace dashboard off as horrible.

Maybe, when he looks at his XE, he might revise that opinion.

Other than that, I’ve bought a couple of Lottery tickets….

Still one of my three car garage.

If I were to have only 1 car, I would like to think it would be the F-Pace SVR. The new 2022 MY facelift with the longer bonnet does look better than the earlier model, but there's really not much in it, externally. I don't mind the big PivoPro iPad screen either. But likely not the 1988 model, I don't see the £20,000 extra in it. But I don't think I'm likely to spend the cash on one, when even used the SVR is extortionately more expensive than the same spec but S model, as I have. However, jumping out of mine into the V8 Supercharged XKR, wow, that V8......

Too tall for me.

Put that running gear in a MY21> XF Sportbrake, now you’re talking.

Well that's what they said about the XE (project 8). A lot of work was needed to fit. I don't think anything has ever been said about the XF.

The irony is that you should even have to seriously consider that possibility at the mileage you have covered.
