Was this purchased recently from one of the online auction sites? It's a fine and rare beast.
No I've had it since 2017. I have seen the two that came up recently.
It would be great to have some more info on it; at least, what's it like?!
What do you wanna know? wobble

Standard XFR-S spec, so 542bhp & 502lb/ft. 5.0 V8 Supercharged. 11.6s@118mph 1/4 mile time at Santa Pod.

Jaguar made 61 of them in total, 34 in the UK and 20 of the total are Ultra Blue.

It's a great car, I absolutely love it. I had two diesel Sportbrakes before this one (a 2.2 and a 3.0) so this has been quite a step up. I wanted one from the moment Jaguar announced them but the £82k list price was a bit rich for me. It's a bit heavy, brakes are a bit rubbish (I've recently upgraded to EBC YellowStuff pads and EBC discs which are better). But it goes like stink, sounds great (especially with the full Spires exhaust system I have) and it's a blast to drive. Definitely the best car I've ever owned.
I couldn't ask for much more! Have you done any good road trips in it? European tours? How is it for comfort?

Good to see a G21 with the 19" Dynamic wheels. What flavour, B or D?

B. I had a D5 before, which I really liked. But I thought I’d better get back to petroleum before going electric.

If it's the 272, yes, at least it does with me as mine is further up the thread. I've had it a couple of weeks and it certainly able to make short work of motorway slip roads and roundabout exits.

Nice, mine's the sportline, I couldn't find an l&k on the used market, I would have liked a pana roof but can live without it. There's not many of these around, enjoy.

Looks good - is it a T6 or a Polestar?
Proper Polestar.

Slightly baffling build quality aside, it took me a while to find the spec I wanted and it's a proper noisy giggle. It's even been to the tip today, just like a wagon should.

This just looks 'right'.

Always been into Audi RS estates, always wanted an RS6 but could never quite stretch the funds (can barely afford the current one) but I have to say, those Alpina's are another level! loving them! I'd hate to be in a position to choose between an RS6 estate and them.
