On the opposite end of the scale compared to a lot of metal in this thread...



My very elderly but very much loved V70 T5 which possibly scrapes in by hauling itself to 147mph on the Autobahn... granted, it then took about 147 miles to stop again.

I bought this back in early 2015 to do a banger rally to Rome and back, which it did fine and then it sort of embedded itself into my life for the following couple of years during which time it had several European jaunts. Situation change dictated it had to go and for the past couple of years it had been sat gathering dust in an associates garage. I bought it back much to the wife's delight earlier this year because rose tinted specs etc.

It's since had and failed an MOT and been sat in the garage ever since whilst I kid myself that I have the time to actually do something with it again. No idea what to do with it, it's hardly that dynamic to drive and an autobox doesn't help and nor is it valuable nor particularly rare or exciting or indeed fast in today's world. It's also a massive pain in the arse as I can't get my lawnmower out past it easily.

I do have a far off dream to cross the Arctic circle and also go back to Adenau for a pizza so this might be the tool for the job...

Lovely, and the first thing that will spring to many peoples’ minds when the think of fast estates

Went shopping, in Southall and Cardiff. I think this is what these cars are for. Astonishingly comfortable for over 11 hours driving.
E Class estate doing the business. Nice.

My '15 XFR-S Sportbrake which I've now had nearly six years.

What is the spec on these? its gorgeous.
These have 39 more BHP than the XFR with a handy 542BHP. There were only 61 XFR-S Sportbrakes built worldwide, so they are pretty rare.

Exclusive as hell then, not going to find one of them in a hurry.

I can't believe they didn't make/sell more.
Such a shame!

How come yours has body coloured bonnet vents? I assume that the new owner is a mate of yours?

I wonder whether you feel as though these have increased in value?

So many questions... it's a shame that you don't have an owners thread and that COVID has prevented any Goodwood Fast Estate breakfast meetings to take place.

I think the black vents were an option. His has black wheels as well.
I don't know if they've increased in value. Autotrader values it at about £38K but doubt that takes rarity into account. It's certainly a lot less than I paid for it in '15. laugh

If you can cope with the saloon ( rear seats fold down) should be easier to find one.
