What a gorgeous car..........two owners (second is a friend of our's), spotless inside and out. Really like new in every way....essentially perfect paint, chrome, interior, carpets, headliner, dash, trunk, engine bay Can't imagine the car looked any different when brand new.
4 liter aluminum DOHC V8, 290hp, revs to near 7,000 rpm, 'electronically' limited to a mere 156 mph, 245/50ZR-17 super high speed rated tires on Jaguar alloy wheels, 0-60 in 6.4 seconds, when R and T tested the car, they averaged 20.1 mpg overall, we even have the original window sticker showing a price of near $69,000. Quite a car for the price of a decent (but no better) MGB.
Sure enough, everything one might expect, Connolly leather interior, 12.1" vented disc brakes, Teves ABS, stereo, climate control, superb braking, handling and steering, quiet, calm, smooth, and absolutely elegant.
Not much to add. Cheaper to service than an Aston Martin, Jaguar repair shops and dealers are plentiful, and the last two owners had near perfect reliability.
