Great touring vehicle love the power, ride and handleing


The long wheel base on the R model.


Classic — I loved jaguar since I was a young child. Have owned four a 340 sedan, an XJ with a four speed and electric overdrive, a 2000 XJR and have loved them all and yes they all had there own little quirk about them that I had to overcome. But then again they are all Jags.

Primary Use: Family transportation

The car.


Consumes tires...but that's mostly the drivers' fault. :)


Xjr: Breed Of Its Own — One of the most under-rated cars of all time. I know many people are prejudice about Jaguars in general but this car has completely altered my perception of the company. The engine is one of the smoothest I have ever drive. Power is delivered in massive amounts (400BHP) but it is extremely linear. The car, for its size, is extremely agile as I am able to keep pace with Mini Coopers and S2000's driving at a highly spirited pace in my neighboring canyons. The brakes are infallible...the 14.4 inch rotors are clamped by 4 piston Brembo floating aluminum calipers. This car has not failed me once...no major issues have arose during my four years of ownership. The styling is unique to its own as its distinctiive shape cannot be mistaken for any other car. With only 1,400 made so far, its is a rare breed of car to see. Gas mileage is amazing on the freeway where I can average up to 27.6MPG at an average speed of 85MPH. Maintenance has been covered by Jaguar so I have not paid a penny for anything. Its combination of style, performance, and reliability makes it one of the best cars I have ever driven and owned.

Nice But Expensive. By Gerardo

I love this car but maintenance price sucks. I spent over 1000 just on tires. Plus they were the okay ones. The thing I love is the engine and the comfort and the SUPERCHARGER. I made some other car e... Read More

B.e.a.utiful By jlogreco

Call me a traditionalist but this body style from a sedan is one of my most favorites. So much so this is the second one I’ve owned and can tell you I’m not a fan of the 2011 XJ’s. I love the ride an... Read More

Greatest Performance Luxury Sedan By Nick

I loved this car, it would hold a hard corner at 80 mph and could even hold a power slide before correcting itself. The drivers seat was the most comfortable, and the interior was excellent. But the... Read More

Beast By VictorXJR

The car does what you ask of it. Comfortable to cruise with, unless you need to get somewhere quickly, and then it has no mercy. Excellent braking and handling. A bit thirsty, and costly to repair, bu... Read More

Jaguar Xjr By Tony

This car was an all around excellent car. It performed well, very fast but heavy and powerful. This car turned heads. I purchased it used and had it for four years before I sold it at 84,000 miles.... Read More
