The XK8 sizzles

by Bruce from Fremont, Ca | June 29, 2011

Visibility is poor, the suspension a bit too tight, to the point is sometimes jarring, and there is less power than a 4.2L should probably deliver. Still, you are wrapped in a gorgeous leather and walnut cocoon and the heads turn as you drive by. This is absolutly the most sizzle for you money out there. “Nice car!” heard from strangers every day.

Sublime power and style XKR

by Mike P from UK | April 24, 2008

Drop dead gorgeous looks from any angle, the most beautiful car I have ever seen. (and that includes the e type!) Sheer pleasure to drive and sit in, the power is intoxicating, (and I have a BMW ZM roadster.) My XKR is metalic black with 20" Detroit alloys, some tyre roar but not bad. It would have been nicer with a bit more exhaust growl, and a little more legroom in the back would have been welcome, but overall-AWESOME

++The Black cat coupe++

by Grifter Cat owner from New York, NY | June 20, 2007

The look is unsupassed, especially the coupe which is uncommon in NYC. The paint and rims of the 2003 compliment the new look for 2003 the changes are shuttle, but make a difference in the older models. The ride is quiet, tight and fast!!!! The 8 cylinder is a monster but doesn't eat gas as much as I thought and was ready to pay for. The sound system is adequate I always hated the rear mounted cd player in cars. I had a CLK 430amg and this car has it too. The A/C is great as all the other options. There is no power door lock button, you must use the handle to open the other door if you are letting someone else in the car whcih I found strange. Forget having passengers in the rear seats unless they are under 4 ft tall. My driver's seat rear hits the back seats in my driver's position. The feel behind the wheel is GREAT, everything is where you want it to be and easily in reach. the instrument panel is easy to read and lights up nicely. The Ebrake is on the leftside and has a weird way to release it. I got the car because I needed a change and wanted something that was not as common. My last 3 cars have been a 1999 M3, 2001 CLK and a 540, and this car beats them all hands down in the WOW factor. The car I purchased was a high mileage 82000 2nd owner coupe. I had the car checked out 110% and was lucky to pay about 10k underbook. Overall the space is tight but doable, the ride rivals all my past cars. It handles better than CLK but not close to the M3. Visibilty is fine and when you are in it the car has a very personal feel like it was made for you. The look is hot and a head turner all day. If you want something different but like the performance of a M3, CLK, 350Z, or G35 I suggest you give the cat a spin around. You will be pleasantly surprised.... Thanks for reading
