- 4.0 Litre V-8, 290HP all aluminum dual overhead cam.
- 5-speed automatic transmission.
This transmission has three shift options: Normal use, a J-shift manual mode and an electronic “Sport Button” that holds shift points to aid performance. The XK-8s top speed is restricted to 155 MPH.
This beauty came to me from someone who had to sell. The purchase was much less than the $84,000 price it commanded when new. No work has been required thus far and it is a pleasure to drive.
I am constantly amazed by the attention this car brings. It can be a little embarrassing at times. I hadn’t thought much about owning a Jag until I drove this one… I was hooked. The number of standard features on these cars is too long to list here. The fascinating thing is that it incorporated these features in 1998. There are new cars today that still do not (or are just starting) to offer some of these features.
We never know what will happen in the future but I’ve had the Jag for a couple of years now and plan to keep it long term. I only drive her about once a week, so I think she’ll be around a long time.
