Had the Jag for a while now, think time for a change, what next? Don’t say vx please  sold almost all my spares.  

 

I like the idea of another sports car, Exige v6? Do fancy the VAG dsg 

 

PS very high spec F type for sale, only 8400 miles on it

Have you thought of a test driving an Ultima Nick, if I had my time again I'd chose that instead of the VX220. They should be very reliable BTW. They are epic road cars and very good on track. When I went to Donnington years ago to meet some factory guys the Ultima overtook about a dozen Sevens in 1 lap, I remember watching it and hearing it.

Best thing to do is go to the factory, get shown around and they'll let you test drive one and also take you out and show you what it can do.

What are you thinking Nick? Occasional track car? Purely a track car? More GT like? Wont the F type struggle to pass the noise tests?

Gt car but also for use on track.

 

Never had the Jag on track they can get round bedford so I am told if you switch the exhaust to quiet.

 

Will see where the factory is, not certain I would go new though, SHMBO....

Budget? Cayman is the obvious choice, but a bit too obvious... How about an M2 as a gt car you could track, but be prepared for bills if you track it regularly.
