2006 Jaguar XJ-Series XJR 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl S/C 6A)
This is a wonderful vehicle, that has excellent luxury and comfort and great performance. It probably needs more power, as standard luxury cars are getting into the horsepower and 0-60 range of this car. I understand that Jaguar can get 550 bhp out of this engine - what's stopping them. An R version of this car should go 0-60 in 4.5 sec or less. Other than these issues (and the car is incredibly fast, it just could go faster), the car is fantastic.
The burled walnut on this car is heavenly - you find yourself just staring at it. The performance is great, the interior and exterior looks are top notch. Back seat is spacious. Great ergonomics: good cup holders and no confusing iDrive. Love the adaptive cruise control and power folding mirrors
1 To compete in its class, this car needs more horsepower. It's fast but not wicked fast like the AMG Mercedes 2 Lack of dual sun-visors on drivers side is a saftey issue 3 Cooled seats, heads-up display and keyless-go would be nice 4 Better clothes hooks 5 Leaper should be touch screen default.
