Jaguar S-type 4.2 V8 R
A memory comes back to me from the early '90s, of driving the then-new 3.8-litre version of the M5. I can vividly remember being blown away by the Beemer and, being a bit of a Jaguar fan, thinking: 'Wouldn't it be great if Jaguar made proper sports saloons again, a bit like the 3.8-litre Mk2 of the early 60s.' Well, today it does. It even looks like a Mk2.
