I think the 250 will be quick, even against the Cooper and the Elise ;)

My 25t has galloped well past three figure speeds, and the reference points along the way seem to tally close to those I did with my Porsche 911 2.7 RS, which was 0-60 mph in around 5 seconds, twenty five years ago. The XE obviously cuts the wind with twice the efficiency. I think the design and efficiency of the car doesn’t by any means get the credit it deserves, and I think that it’s the preserve of British cars you can drive them in a docile licence preserving manner, but they can make a big noise on the road when beckoned !

Obviously when you were in Germany on the Autobahn.
