1997 Jaguar XK-Series XK8 2dr Coupe


The XK is perhaps the best looking vehicle made, at least in coupe form. Even after all these years in production, the car gets the looks like it was a brand new design. Be careful if you're taller than 6'. It can be cramped inside.

Best Features

Incredible styling in the coupe. After six months, I still go out to the garage just to look at it. Highway comfort. Reasonable fuel economy. Handles good for its size.

Worst Features

It's a low production piece, so it can be expensive to fix. I just replaced the transmission on my high-mileage car, and it cost almost 5k. High maintenance but worth it.
