2005 Jaguar XJ-Series Vanden Plas 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 6A)
The 2005 Vanden Plas XJ8 is the autobahn beater that should be considered by anyone looking to combine luxury with size and power. Jaguar's flagship matches up with the S-Class and the 700 Series very well. Less weight (aluminum) equals speed and agility you would not expect from such a large auto. The additional costs for he German cars can only leave you wondering why would you spend more to get less? Compare the three. The car will sell itself. Tally Ho
The smooth effortless acceleration propels this car off the line with gusto, while the occupants are surrounded withe the finest in British leather and wood luxury. At 65 mph, your beverage makes no waves as it rests on the fold down tables in the gigantic rear seating area.
The XJ has been completely changed for the 2010 model. The 2005 will maintain the heritage of the past. The new model will be the link to exciting future. I would not change a thing.
