    Pops and bangs SVR review

    Great review on the SVR, that exhaust is amazingly crazy. Also shows how it can be done by revving to 5k rpm, lifting off then lightly tapping the accelerator for a whole load of crackles, pops, bangs. Sounds brilliant

    Current Car:
    2017 XE R-Sport 25t 250Ps 18MY.

    Previous Cars:
    2000 S-Type 3.0L SE Auto

    I said I'd not consider an F-Type...but THAT will do nicely.

    Cheapest SVR I can find with ceramic brakes is £80k, so best start saving the pennies.

    You missed this one, £73k with ceramic brakes too.

    Sorry I'd only consider a coupe, as no hair left to blow in the wind.

    Apologies in advance if this offends anyone, but that interior is simply hideous, natch IMO.

    I'm in a similar boat to you Marky, I would really really love an SVR coupe and at a pinch I would settle for a mere R coupe, but all I could afford at the time two years ago (and still now) was a measly S coupe (admittedly pretty much fully loaded).
    The prices of used F-Type Rs here in Oz are a joke, 1.5 times the price in the UK and twice the price in the US and SVRs are up in the stratosphere, try $400,000 plus for one with the CCM brakes.
    2014 F-Type S coupe, Lunar Grey, red seats and nearly all the options.
    The dearly departed - 2010 XFS and 2010 XFR.
