    mmmm... XJR or even an XJ8 or XJ6 would be where i'd put my money.

    Thats what i'd put my money on.

    Otherwise, all the other usual luxo-barges.

    Audi A8.
    S class, E class or CLS.
    7 or 5 series.

    If you are willing to go a little older. How about a Bentley Arnage? or a Rolls Royce Silver Spur. (Crazy suggestions i know) :)

    No, it's the previous model. You won't get the new type for this sort of money but you will get a minter of a 53 plate E39 and some change for a Lotus Elise.

    No, he's talking about the Mercedes CLS not the M3 CSL or the outgoing M3 CS.
