I decided to purchase an XKR after owning numerous Porsche 928, 930, Corvettes, and yes, even an XJ12. I never forgave Jaguar for such poor quality and mechanics in the old Jaguars. What a great surprise the new Jaguar is for new or old Jag owners. The quality is evident in every part. The performance is exciting and you just can't beat the styling.

If it isn't enough that God has
given me the most beautiful Jaguar ever
created, He has also given me one of
only 200 sold in the U.S.!!!!!!!!!
Faster than a corvette and more
luxurious than any Mercedes, Lexus or
Land Rover ever. This car has it all
and I have checked them all out. It is
a supercar in every way.
For 2001, there are standard child seat-anchor points for the rear seats and a reverse parking-control system. The premium audio system with a six-disc CD changer and the GPS navigation system are now standard equipment on XK8s. Topping things off are minor exterior styling changes and a new no-cost scheduled maintenance program that covers four regular service visits under the four-year/50,000-mile limited warranty.
