2004 Jaguar XJ-Series XJ8 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 6A)
I bought my 2004 Jaguar XJ8 in May, 2008. It had 35,000 miles on it and, yet, it has taken me an additional 50,000 trouble-free, breathtakingly quick miles. The car is a beauty, British racing green with sand interior. The normally aspirated engine responds well and the ZF transmission translates that power to the road immediately. The XJ handles like a much smaller car, dancing over the road rather than crushing it as its German stablemates tend to do. This is the best, most responsive car I've ever owned. A true joy to behold and to drive.
Amazing acceleration, good firm braking, responsive on twisty roads and quiet. A real 10
