    Life time av according to trip comp is 17.5 mpg
    A recent 1hr motorway run @ 70-75 returned 22 mpg .--but teens rpm like 1800
    We ran a V8 Cayanne for 100 K miles .Never saw more than 22 on the motorway
    Servicing any VW or Audi they have the parts from Pheaton ,A8 ,RS stuff etc .
    Eg the rear spoiler motor lifting mech is same a Bettle GT .

    V8S is even better, sharper steering and front end due to less weight in the nose. You can actually hustle it like a big go-kart

    Agree re handling only and maybe MPG ?,but I have an even better "big go cart " --- a 360 -for those type of drives

    They do an "S" in both V8 and W12 these days .

    Aside from a GT pov -with emphasis on the Grand I think it's more of what options /spec the inside is ,the cabin where you suppose to spend time on transcontinental trips l
    Carefully looking at spec the "launch "modal have more leather and woods ' and contrasting colours
    Lesser seem to skip on woods -eg no wood in the doors ,rear divide and armrest ,--just plan leather -ok diamond quilted ,but still there's a hierarchy and the W12 sit on top .

    MPG really depends as we all know even with F cars how you drive it
    Went down the M1 /M25 to Egham recently to visit -kid -@ Uni -was in the 360 -Sunday -traffic /cones /etc +++ --- it did 28 mpg @70-60 and 50 ---- just too busy to blat .Put 500 miles on ---it did it good btw -a long run -except 40 mins on the M25 carpark -stop /start = eek --my clutch !!
    Next time -we will take the Conti .( normal fluid slush box /no clutch ) -don,t think front end feel will make a difference re V8 version on that trip

    Any experiance any body -thoughts ps
    It seems quick as fast maybe quicker than a 360! - But nicely comfatable and well screwed together .
    I like it and wife does .
    I think that "Comfatable" about sums it up....

    it's heavey on paper ,but smaller dimensionally wise than Ferrari 12 ,s .Most F 12's are fatter -width wise for squeezing in tight gaps .

    It's now my (2nd car) and a Sunday and high days car .

    Ferrari is now going to end up a garage queen by default -as relegated to 3rd .Which I suppose is kinda OK ish -re residuals and the ever sensitive and stupid UK Ferrari market .
    If the airports are hassle re strikes the W/E ( Xmas ) then I'll bomb off to Switzerland in it -4WD
    Thing is you can use -have fun in one of these all year round without worrying if it's going to dissolve !
