    My car

    I write this review with pleasure! I've owned my beautiful XK8 convertible since July 2004. It has been a personal ambition to own this car for the past four years and finally in July 04 I purchased an 18-month-old beauty.

    No matter what Clarkson says about this car, it is the most prestigious and glamous car that I have ever owned. I've owned a Merc, four BMWs and a Porsche and all of those cars combined don't compare to the thrill of driving an XK8 convertible.

    I paid £37k for mine, which I think is very afforadable for what you actually get for £37k. The XK8 delivers luxury at its finest and is it quick? Oh yes, very!

    This car turns heads wherever I go, it spells out success, wealth and professionalism in abundance and as a company director I need to represent myself in the higest order. The XK8 delivers big time. A gentleman's car for the successful man who wants to show off his status.

    I can't report any problems or faults whatsoever. This car is immaculate and drives perfectly. It has never been returned to the dealer for anything. In fact it's the only car I've ever purchased that I havn't had to return. With regards to the rear seating, I've got two small kids and they sit perfectly safe in the rear bucket seats.

    As well as being absolutely drop-dead georgeus, this car ouzes sex appeal and is sure to be a modern classic. Go and buy the car!
