2001 Jaguar XJR.jpg

Jaguar XJ8/Jaguar XJR (X308). 1997–2002 (prod. 126,260 all X308, incl. Daimler). 4-door saloon, 4-door LWB saloon. F/R, 3248, 3996 cm³ (V8 DOHC). Revised version of “retrolutionary” XJs on the XJ40 platform, but with the traditional six- and twelve-cylinder engines retired. Fully revised interior. Very outclassed by Mercedes-Benz and BMW by now, though still a favourite among the British. Very cramped rear seat by modern standards, alleviated slightly by long-wheelbase model. XJR supercharged as before, though with the larger V8.
