Here's the webseite: Jaguar UK

20" wheels
Comfort Access
Sat nav
Sport seats with adjustable width
5 litre supercharged V8 with 510bhp and 461 lb/ft torques
Combined fuel consumption of 12,5 l/100km combined
Active diff this and electronic that
1891kg kerb weight

The M5 is unfortunately, thirstier (14,6l/100km), heavier (1955kg), and has a smaller petrol tank, only 70 litres. But stats don't show everything.

The latest top gear episode has the Jaaaaag comparing favourably to the M5. It's as good on the road, and *nearly* as good as the M5.

The thing is, I would never really want to buy an M5 as a sports car because it's too heavy. I feel the 5er is supposed to a comfortable executive sedan, not a track burner. In setting, the XF looks to be more comfortable and easy to drive around town. The F1 heritage of the M5 is truly, and I mean really enticing, but I just want a comfortable, relaxed sedan. I see more of a point in the M3 than the M5 or worse, the M6.
