Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), also known as "sticker" price, is a recommended selling price that automakers give a new car that is above the invoice price paid by the dealer. It is a price that does not include any options that can be added to a particular car style. When shown as a range, the prices are starting MSRPs, without options, for multiple styles for that model.
This price range reflects the Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value for all trim levels, but not necessarily all available options.
The Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value represents the amount an auto dealer might ask for a specific vehicle; the actual sale price will vary. A vehicle's popularity, condition, warranty, color and local market conditions are factors involved in determining a final price. The retail value is not a trade-in or private party value.
The Suggested Retail value assumes that the vehicle has been fully reconditioned and has a clean title history. The Suggested Retail value also allows for advertising, sales commissions, insurance and other costs of doing business as a dealer. Most vehicles offered at this price have passed an inspection, and some may carry a warranty. Vehicle mileage is assumed to be normal or below normal.

Very satisfied with this car
by Coventry fan from North of Chicago | August 20, 2010
When the XJR came out in 1998 it was the fastest sedan ever produced. For 1999 it got competition from the Mercedes E55 and in 2000 the BMW M5. The 1999 XRJ beats these on styling, just have a look at them now in 2010, the others have aged, but not the Jaguar. Reliability is top notch, not a single issue over 5 years of ownership. The Pirelli p-zero tires last only 10k miles at the most, go with a different tire unless you have to race all the time. This is a comfortable and very fast car, it will put a smile on your face every day.

Drives like a sports car. 5.4 to 60mph mid 13s 1/4 mile. Solid after 40,000 miles. Love the interior top qulity leather and beautiful wood trim. No nonsense sport sedan. Eats tires,brakes and Boxsters....
