I have owned 2 other Jags and this XK8 is the most eye catching one of them all. The handling is sweat and the lines of the car in like no other. I love driving down the street and watching folks point and steer at the car. Absolutely wonderful.

Top Luxury and Performance for Economy Car Prices

First, the XK8 is gorgeous! It rivals it's grandfather, the E-Type Jaguar, in the looks and exceeds it in performance and comfort. Standard equipment includes options from other manufacturers, like ABS, leather interior, skid control, climate control, etc. I have owned ten Jaguars and this one is the tops for comfort and features. The ride is comfortable but the car can corner like a sports car. The rich wood and leather interior is like an English Club. The exhaust note is quiet unless one hits the accelerator hard at which time the Jaguar will snarl in response. Other than poor depreciation -- which makes them affordable for the second and third owners -- the XK8 rates a 9.5 out of 10.

The Jaguar XK8 is natual successor to the venerable XK-E. The XK8 retains many of the design elements of the 60s era sports car pioneer, yet it is a modern, very well equipped sports car for today. Jaguar has solved the past quality problems that diminished the brand in the 70s and 80s, and the current cars among the best rated in terms of quality by JD Powers. The 1997 - 2006 model XK8 design is among the most beautiful of any car on the road. The 1997 - 1999 wood dash with analog guages is aestheticall the most pure - later years added a navigation system that in my view ruined the pure sports car looks. While this car is a boulevard cruiser rather than a flat out racer, it drives like a sports car. It handles like a dream, very precise, with a very small turning circle. And it snaps heads everywhere it goes. It is particularly attractive to women - drivers and passengers alike. The 290 HP V8 engine delivers the growl and torque one would hope for a car of this type. A late 90s model is a real steal - it is very affordable and allows Jaguar lovers to buy a weekend racer without breaking the bank.

SCAM

by from Southern California on March 26, 2013

Anybody who advertises a price...then in the seller's notes gives an "oh-by-the-way" the real price is + $3,000.00 Dishonest. Scam artists. Shameful.
