The XJ8 sedan is the entry level models for this luxury car, and it is also available with a longer wheelbase.

The ultra-luxury Vanden Plas adds features like fold-down picnic tables for rear seat passengers, lambswool carpeting, and a navigation system. The Super V-8 is differentiated by a more powerful engine, and receives all the features of the lower trims.
