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


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?
