1985 Jaguar XJ-SReview

Lovely Classic Car — A lovley 5.3 V12 with the beautiful classic Jaguar look. Could be more reliable, but you can't blame an old car for being ill once in a while ? Avoid the cheap cars and go for a well looked after one, you will be surprised how amazing driving one can be.

Pros: V12

Cons: Fuel hungry

1985 Jaguar XJ-SReview

With Some Bondo And A Junkyard Motor...a Beast! — when british leyland made this car, they didn't think about quality. The Lucas Fuel Injected 5.3 V12 was a high speed motor...if you could get it started. Let's just say lucas couldn't even make a refrigerator that worked! That's why " the brits drink their beer warm, because lucas made a refrigerator"

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: It's a great car with a LT1 POLICE INTERCEPTOR
