I quite enjoyed starting up the red XF-R at the showroom and revving the hell off it last week.

Same day, a few minutes later, I found this outside the Infinity showroom.

Haha, what you mean by "driven like it should be?". He must be having a slightly lower GC that you and worse roads than Chennai-B'lore NH(unless he decides to go out of the city or in early hours). So he can only dream doing 260ish for full 10 minutes and all

I guess a person buying the Xf-R would really know what this car is capable of and is an enthusiast at heart.If he just wanted it as the status symbol,the normal XF would have served him fine,isnt it?

@ Avishar - Right. Much like the M5, I guess.

Thats further proof as to why I love the nevis rims which comes on the XFR so much. These pictures really do justice to the beast but not sure about the color though. Are there no xfr's in black ? Thats the color to get in an XFR.

A black XF-R spotted outside Churchgate station. I guess it had stopped to ask for directions. By the time I could manage a pic, it had already left.

Had seen another XFR at the domestic airport this week. White with a DD registration.

The XF-R looks gorg in that colour. Fancy those rims too, assuming they're 'R' type rims since I haven't seen them around on the regular XF's.
