"One has to view them as luxury saloons in the vein of Bentleys rather than GT cars like Astons."

Not so, Richard. They are consummate GT cars - very quick, at least with a 4-speed manual, with great handling (de dion rear end). Try catching one in a contemporary Bentley - even a DB4 would have to work hard.

No slouch either with a modern 4 speed auto with 2 stage kickdown. 25% uprated front springs and Koni adjustable shock absorbers markedly improve the front end, and new Jag Mk10 racing brakes mean it can stop too!
