2005 Jaguar XJR 4 Dr Supercharged Sedan Review
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.

Scraps Of Metal Joined Together!
The car is very poorly built but, the performance is reasonable although the car has a bit of a thirst for the fuel consumption.. . Overall I'd give the car 4 stars only because of its performance. Ev... Read More
A Great Price When Purchased Used For Such A Nice Car.
This car is fast, just as fast as my 06 sts-v that was also supercharged, however this xjr rides SOOOO mush better, so smooth even with the very small sidewall tires which usually give a car a harsh r... Read More

I Loved To Drive And Ride In This Car And I Would Not Turn It Away If I Could Have It.
This car was like riding on a cloud. The handling was good along with all the extras that were included. I went a whole week without filling this car up and I went from Detroit airport to Bay City and... Read More
Xjr What A Car
Let me put it this way, what else can you get for 15000 that is this fast, looks this good, and is this comfortable, nothing, that's what. This car is a riot, Corvette levels of speed (in some cas... Read More
Hannibal Lecter Drove One So It's Cool
Good fun, classic British cruiser. Wood, leather, grace space and pace as they used to say. Build quality on par with top Ford models as built under their ownership. Expensive parts prices. Definitely... Read More
