The Designers Got It Right
By Bob Burger on
Vehicle1998 Jaguar XK-Series XK8 2dr Convertible
ReviewI've longed for this car since it was
introtuced in '97. The only way I was
able to "get into" this car was to wait
and buy a pre-owned Jag--let the
original owner take the "depreciation
hit." My '98 had 40,000 miles on the
odometer, but it was like new; hardly a
blemish on it. I assume the original
owner paid at least $75,000 for it
new. It had all the special
assessories with the exception of the
headlight washers. The chrome wheels
are beautiful on this "meteorite"
colored convertible. This design has
been on the road for eight years, but
it is still a "head turner."
It'e an expensive car to drive; high
insurance premiums, expensive oil
changes (oil filter) and when those
Best FeaturesPirelli tires need replacing it will be at least $180 per tire. Then there is the additional cost of the required premium fuel. I just consider this the high cost of having fun. What a joy driving this beautiful "cat."
