In July 2016 we drove an XF-R, powered by a petrol fuelled engine, all the way to outback Priscilla Queen of the Desert country in Broken Hill, via Brisbane and Albury on a 5027 kilometre marathon.
We encountered (by accident) brutal dirt roads, rudely officially titled ‘Highway’, on the journey from Griffith to Broken Hill – but the car performed brilliantly – thankfully because we were out of phone contact!
Now Jaguar Australia has loaned us a new sister model – XF-R – but a diesel version.
It will be fascinating to compare the diesel engined model with the petrol one – but already it is bringing back many fond memories.
It will all be in edition #192.
