Boys and their (Blue) Toys!

Reading time: < 1 minute...

OK, here, as promised, are the first shots of my new toy – the rather splendid Jaguar XKR. It took my brother and I quite a while to locate the right model as there are plenty of grey ones (boring!!) or black ones (slightly less boring) out there – but we both felt that blue, specifically, Jaguarโ€™s very rare Spectrum Blue, was the one!

Well done to colleagues and friends: Alex B, Kevin P and Carl G for correctly identifying the car, (and Jo for almost getting it right – my budget wouldnโ€™t stretch to an XKR-S!) from the 10 clues I put on Facebook the week before. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

But shame on you Ian M for suggesting it was actually a canoe, after seeing the Facebook post mentioning it having โ€˜paddlesโ€™ – Doh!!!! Smile

I picked it up today and had an opportunity to experience all sorts of roads on the 100-or-so mile journey home from the Dealer. Surprisingly, it averaged between 27 and 32 mpg (higher than I expected) at an average speed of 62mph.

My thanks to the very helpful team at Top Cars of Sheffield – Tony, Mark and Ollie, for their superb customer service and hospitality after my journey โ€˜up northโ€™ by train. They met me at Sheffield station and ferried me to their specialist dealership about 10-minutes away! I felt good already!! ๐Ÿ˜
