1997 Jaguar XK-Series XK8 2dr Coupe

Review

I bought a low miles (17000) black w/tan interior convertible (from a music icon who bought he car off the showroom floor in Nashville). I am the second owner. I enjoy it. Only drive it on nice days. I rarely push it but when I do it performs. The interior quality is not up to what it should be and I would have put some metal in the front where that plastic piece is. I think this is the first year that Ford made the car. The technology on the engine was flawed in materials but does not seem to be too big a problem. Light lenses leak but glass is so much better than all the new plastic lenses. All and all a good car. Classic? Don't bet on it.

Favorite Features

trunk space, top, smooth, wife likes it.

Suggested Improvements

Interior quality like glue, materials and appointments, especially convertables fall below exptected standards.
