My concerns are that in winter with 380hp on wet or slippery roads it will be a little “too” alive, our daily drive is an IPace which has high level of grip in all conditions. We did drive the 575 AWD on the Jaguar test track very impressive but way over the top.

Each to their own of course
I drive the 380 S in all weather and have never missed having AWD, and it has the LSD, but equally I don't have a daily commute that could require using it in snow and ice.
In the 575 there's all that extra power to both overcome the AWD sapping and much greater need to be able to put it down.
Certainly try the 380 AWD before you commit

iPace is a nice toy and you do need the twin motor set up on that.

These are valid concerns and it's a reason why I've not decided to tune my RWD P340. I daily it all year round except when it's icy and snowy. At 340bhp and 450nm of torque I think it's very balanced and it allows me to play more and push it to the limits on bendy roads. So maybe, you may want to look into this slightly tuned down V6 version. On the right gear, I'm never short of power and I'm probably faster than 90% of the other cars on the road.

The P380s seem to be holding up better. Haven't heard of many crank issues with them compared to the diesels. If you're considering one, it’s probably a safer bet in that regard.

Test drive both AWD and RWD and see which suits you best. You've got to test drive as many as you can! :)

For people saying rwd is dodgy and i'd go for awd as its safer, what a load of rubbish.
Its the driver thats the problem not the car, i have 650hp and rwd and drive it in the wet if i have to with no problems.
Its all about throttle control.
