The Designers Got It Right

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
