    Anyone know anything about these?

    Jaguar XK8

    4.0 V8, RWD, 300BHP

    http://search.autotrader.co.uk/es-uk...geId=848340901

    Sounds like a laugh and can pick a 1998 one up for around 6k with 80k miles.

    Anyone been in/driven one of these? Opinions?

    Obviously you would not buy one of these to drive carefully and save fuel/service bills they are thirsty but are only group 18 insurance. Seems like a small price to pay for pretending to be James Bond? lol

    Nice, but I certainly wouldn't like to pay to run one.

    they are ok i guess, comfy but a firm ride too.

    think there are all auto's (or at least all the ones i've driven are) and certainly nothing blistering power wise, more of a motorway mile muncher IMO but then again everyones views will be different.

    still not found myself in an XKR yet though

    a 98 should be taxed as a plg so £180ish for 12 months

    Very nice modified one in a mag a while back, cost a fortune to service and maintain though.
