1995 Jaguar XJR


A great classic


Tires blow out.

Headlight needed replacement.

Wiring loom needed replacement (expensive!)

General Comments:

Just love the comfort and performance. It is an occasion every time I drive it. The in line 6 is very smooth. It also draws a lot of interest from people. Interior design not all that good, but the leather is wonderful.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

2005 Jaguar XJR 4.2 supercharged V8


A hugely satisfying car to own and drive with beautiful looks and a terrific driving experience


No faults. Still under factory warranty.

General Comments:

I have a black XJR with a red leather interior loaded with all the options. It has the optional wide 20 spoke alloys and sits low on the ground. It just looks superb and "malevolent".

It handles beautifully and the 4.2 V8 supercharged engine delivers blistering acceleration with huge pace, but in a smooth and refined manner.

Road holding is excellent and you get sports car performance with all the convenience and practicality of a large luxury saloon car.

Ride comfort is great and the ergonomics of the cabin are excellent.

Hong Kong has very steep hills, but the XJR just shrugs it all off with ease. Despite Hong Kong being stuffed full of exotic high performance cars the XJR gets lots of looks of admiration.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
