Boot over 500 litres adds practicality, will this compete with the New XC60?
It would definitely be in my test list.

Default RR Velar & Jaguar F-Pace - Beautifully rendered CGI Video

Hello folks,

This popped up on the RR Velar forum and I thought you might like to take a look too?

https://youtu.be/ZcwKv8seD9A

Enjoy. It's just 2.5mins long. I am not into these video games but I must admit that CGI rendering has come a long way since Colin McCrae Rally on PlayStation 1 back in the late-1990s.

Pretty soon, if you can't afford a Bentley Bentayga and that's your thing (not mine) then just create one in virtual world!

Ive spent a fortune on Alfa's over the years and never ha my fingers burnt, but I need to see a real stelvio, the pictures aren't doing anything for me and the interior is what a BMW should look like (but doesnt) not an Alfa.

Looking around at Xmas for summer delivery - on the list:

V90
Velar (bottom of range, only just in reach)
Stelvio
5 series estate
Maserati Ghibli (restricted mileage)

Or might go used/ cheap:

Audi A8
CL 500

I would need to do a 530 personally as the fleet scheme has a CO2 limit and that means 520 - or at least it used to.

I passed the worlds smallest road-going Aston Martin the other day - one of these.
Made me smile.
Wouldn't like to be doing anything other than inner city driving in one, mind you....he was on the A14....in the not-so-fast lane!!

That would be a personal lease too and on 8000 a year, so its a remote possibility.

There is also a Ferrari (Fiat 500) and A Maserati (Alfa Romeo) Mito, both were never for sale, but were courteousy cars, those that were sold off were 30K plus, they had styling and marque specific interiors, but no new bodywork.
