1997 Jaguar XK-Series XK8 2dr Coupe


This car has been a joy to drive for
over two years. It has had its fair
share of mechanical problems, and it
does have some quirks (stalling at
90mph on the freeway once!), which are
largely down to user error e.g. you
should wait for the car to complete its
diagnostics on start up before engaging
a gear, otherwise you get an erroneous
error message.
There is nothing like an XK8 for
getting admiring glances from those in
the know, and from people who just love
the classic lines of the beautiful cat.
Despite the fact that I am trading mine
in for something much more practical, I
will always love the luscious feline
with its muscular physique and energy.
