Only a P300 but it's a daily driver.
85 miles/day from and to work. Leave at 5:30AM return at 7-8PM so I can play a little more. Average 18750 miles/year
It's surely the most fun car I've owned to date

The Jaguar F Type is certainly not the only car with the "cold start" feature. I've heard it on the Aston Martin DB11 (V8), the Mercedes C63 (V8) and the Porsche GTS (V6).

Either way, when I start the F, I cannot help but smile. It seem's to say "Let's Go !"

Oh Well Chicb, seems like I'm not gonna be the one with the lowest annual mileage, At my current 25km/week, I should rack up about 800 miles this year !

As the Reg plate suggests very much a weekend toy although does get a few trips out to pick stuff up.
I’ve only recently swapped from a Tvr Tuscan and I have to admit I still feel a little guilty having such a comfortable and easy car to drive. ( Tuscan was great to tho’ )
Will probably clock up 2-3K miles/ yr which is about the same as it’s previous owner.

Weekend toy, although I love the practicality of being able to use it as a daily driver. I take it to work every now and then, the only trouble is that I commute on the M25 at rush hour, so I'd rather do it in my big comfy daily rather than the Jag.

But the Jag is nice and comfy, and think of the pleasure you'll give to those around you (though you might make them a bit jealous!). ;)

Mine will be neither depending as it fills the gap between the two being my golf cart and long distance cruiser.

I am starting the car with garage doors closed. Loud enough to wake a graveyard. But yes big smile.

I have had mine for five days now and she has much better mpg than my Lexus so she is my daily runner. Until the weather improves and I can start using the motorbike but is going to be a tough decision not to take the F Type..😀🤪
