1998 Jaguar XK-Series XK8 2dr Convertible


Even though my car is a 1998 it's a little embarrassing when people stare and point. The top is easy to operate and the car drives like a dream. I know the previous owner and aside from very minor issues the 54000 miles it has have been trouble free. It was intended to be a luxury car more than a sports car and it fills the bill perfectly. While not a "neck snapper" like my Corvettes were, the power is delivered smoothly without reserve. This will probably be the most quiet convertible you ever ride in. At the used prices today, find a nice one and live it up!

Best Features

Plenty of trunk room. The back seat serves well as a padded parcel shelf. The five speed automatic helps to provide me 23+ highway MPG. Harmon- Kardon stereo w/10 speakers is wonderful.

Worst Features

Outside seat bolsters will wear over time.
