    Default Jaguar XK owners most likely to be given a speeding ticket

    Jaguar XK owners are most likely to fall foul of the law and get a speeding ticket, according to new research.



    20.9 per cent of XK owners have been caught and ticketed, according to data provided by online price comparison service MoneySupermarket.
    Audi A5, BMW 6-Series, Alfa Romeo and Jaguar XF owners made up the rest of the top five respectively.

    Jaguar XKR, Alfa Romeo Brera, Audi TT, BMW 3-Series and Nissan 370Z owners were also classed as the biggest speeders, according to manufacturer and model.
    Despite Jaguar having three models in the top 10 makes most likely to be caught speeding, Porsche owners are most likely to be caught speeding overall.
    14.2 per cent of Porsches on the road have been caught speeding, 0.1 per cent ahead of Aston Martin owners in second. Jaguar owners were third, followed by Bentley and Saab.
    MoneySupermarket analysed data from its motor monitor system to analyse which drivers are more likely to be caught speeding based on previous convictions.
    Over 18 million car insurance quotes were analysed to give an accurate reflection of the UK motoring market.
    The survey also discovered that surgeons and operation directors were most likely to be caught speeding, with people local to Bournemouth most adept at breaking speed limits.
    Least likely to speed are Morris owners, whilst drivers across London may find themselves surprised to be living amongst the least frequent speeders in the country.
    According to model, Rover Metro and Rover 114 owners are least likely to speed. A warehousewoman is also least likely to speed, alongside driving instructors and casual workers.
    MoneySupermarket highlight that somebody who is caught speeding will be forced to pay approximately 17 per cent more on their car insurance policy when a renewal is due.

    We had a XKR for almost 4 years, & neither of us fell-foul of any cameras (fixed, mobile, or indeed, Traffic cars)

    That said, SWMBO did get a ticket in her company Mondeo just before buying it

    I tihnk it was one of the safest cars I've driven, or been in - apart from a (genuine) 289 Cobra - as its acceleration is superb, so you spend a lot less time on the wrong sie of the road

    It certainly is a looker (especially in the advertising blurb),but ,in common with 90% of modern cars,what spoils it for me(mainly noticable in lighter colours) is the prominent join between the front plastic bumper/grille moulding & the front 'wings'....anyone agree?
