Jaguar Sportbrake

My wife hates estate cars. She says they're 'disgraceful'. This means that I'll never be able to build a BTCC-replica Volvo 850 wagon, but heigh-ho, thems the breaks.
She might like this one, though. It's basically a lengthened Jaguar XF with a big boot, which gives it something of a sheikh-special/Lynx Eventer vibe. It'll only be available as a diesel (she won't like that), although the range-topping 3.0-litre V6 offers 271bhp (which she might). It's got self-levelling air suspension and seats that fold down electrically at the touch of a button, so presumably it makes a lot of futuristic buzzing, whirring and whooshing sounds too. Cool.

Oh wait, no, you can't get it with a manual gearbox. An automatic diesel estate? Who am I kidding? She won't even look at the pictures...
