Mint Xjs Convertible — A lovely old thing even at 12mpg. This one has been polished and pampered all it's life, a lucky find that will do very nicely for touring down to Italy from time to time. 2 seats, big engine roof down.

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

Pros: V12 purr

Cons: fragile

If You Engineer 50% Of The Jaguar Out Of It, It Becomes An Awesome Car. — Performance- The acceleration sucks because they weren't smart enough to put an overdrive transmission in it and made up for it by putting super high gears in it. Top speed should be OK. It handles great for its hefty weight and stops pretty good too. Quality- Mechanically it is built great, strong parts where it needs it, and nicely machined parts. Appearance-The styling of this car is timeless, sure its not an E-type, but it has a look that just gets better the more you look at it. I prefer the quad headlights of the older style with the larger bumper covers of the mid 90's models. Mileage is terrible now, but should improve after the modifiacations

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

Pros: It is just plain beautiful, handles well and drives well

Cons: Expensive to repair and maintain, Lucas electronics

Get One If You Can. — Performance - Only downside is the gas mileage, which I am now averaging about 11.6 miles per gallon. Build Quality - The center console is cracked, the headliner is sagging, the drivers sun visor holder is broken, passenger window rolls up and down slowly, and the passenger lock has to be jimmied to unlock. Appearance - Great design, tiny upward dent in the center of the hood, small paint chip on drivers door, tar and little rust on the side skirts. Cost of ownership - Haven't had to do anything yet, already mentioned fuel economy. Fun Factor - Yes very much fun, large leap from driving a Pontiac Grand Am.

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

Pros: It's a Jag

Cons: It's too good.

Xjs — I have had the car for almost 9 years, it was passed down to me from my mom, We dropped a 2003 LT1 out of a camero into the car and dispossed of the original v-12. It is not a car that is easy to drive, when I floor it tires break loose in 1st, 2nd, and 3rd and the rear end kicks over to the right. It has just over 100,000 k on its millage, and the engine just over 90.

Pros: New engine

Cons: suspension could be stiffer.

1990 6.0l Jaguar Xjr-s — 1990 6.0l Jaguar XJR-S Very big engine (6.0l V12) but only some average power (330 HP) Great exhaust noise! Huge torque (50Mkg) Lovely to drive, even pedal to metal (270 km/h) Very stylish interior, all cream leather and precious wood. Such a unique look without a real age... even sportier with the TWR aero kit and handling kit (Shorter gearbox, Shorter springs, 6 Bilstein shocks, 16" speedline wheels) I'm a fan ;)

Pros: cool car

Cons: petrol price
