2003 Jaguar XK-Series XK8 2dr Coupe (4.2L 8cyl 6A)

Review

For 30 years, I've always owned a sports car as my primary transport -- because I just really love to drive. The XK8 is really my first sports car (if you can call it that) for grownups. Actually, it's really a GT or a GGT (Greatest Grand Tourer) with the emphasis on the "Gee!" It's kinda like the girl you marry, after you've had a lot of flings. Nothing else comes close to the coupe for poise and polish. It's design is timeless -- like its lineal ancester, the XKE. You don't own this car for the numbers -- you own it for its style. It's incredibly sleek and sexy and just whispers elegance. It's a lady.

Best Features

Style, style, style. The interior feels more posh than a Rolls. And all that burled walnut everywhere. Everyone thinks its an Aston Martin, but I think it's more refined.

Worst Features

The six speed automatic is devine, but couldn't they build one with a clutch?
