Gorgeous, true head-turner!

2000 Jaguar XK-Series XK8 2dr Coupe


I've owned 4 cars (3 Jaguars) and this XK8 has been my best one so far. It has 70k miles currently and runs very smoothly. The driving dynamics are very luxurious and the exterior and interior are nothing short of beautiful; the coupe gets a lot of looks and head-turns. The power is ample and the torque is nice and low RPM. The real power comes in once you're at about 40mph and slam on the gas, all the while it feels smooth, linear, and effortless. Had one problem with the cooling system (was a common problem) and cost me $500; I have had no problems since then aside from a malfunctioning CD changer. Beautiful car that, if well maintained, is absolutely timeless!

Best Features

Beautiful interior appointments (soft leather and lots of glossed wood), sleek coupe design, transmission smoothness, noticeable available torque. Great stock Alpine sound system as well!

Worst Features

Some electronic improvements (CD player, antenna, top rear brake light).
