1998 Jaguar Xj8 183k Miles Runs Great! Needs Rear Hub/axle Repair. No Reserve! on 2040-cars
Lawton, Iowa, United States
Offered for sale is a 1998 Jaguar
XJ8 with 183,217 miles. The body and undercarriage of the car has some rust, as
can be seen in the pictures. The engine was replaced by Jaguar at about 80k
miles, and the transmission was also replaced at 100k. I have used the car for
the last few years. The car ran and drove fine until last week, when the left
rear hub bearing failed in the hub carrier and the wheel now wobbles
excessively, so it is not currently drivable. There is an issue with the
electrical system, as the engine warning light, traction control, stability
control, and ABS lights are all on. The speedometer does not work, but the
odometer still logs mileage. The rest of the gauges work fine. The windshield
has a crack along the bottom of the glass. The aftermarket radio and speakers
have been removed. The car was painted at some point, and some of the paint is
chipped off of the front and rear bumpers.
The Bridgestone Potenza tires were
put on new this summer. Engine oil and filter were just replaced at 183,000
miles. The A/C, heater, heated seats, and sunroof all work.
This car can either be repaired and
driven, or could be used as a parts car. I am selling the car because I do not
have the time to fix, and need a truck instead of a car. Email with any
questions. This is a no reserve auction, highest bidder wins. Good luck and

If there's something wrong about a sedan with a 550-horsepower supercharged V8, we don't want to hear about it. Instead, we want to marvel at the car in person, which is fortuitous because Jaguar has officially unveiled the 2014 XFR-S at the 2012 LA Auto Show. That blown 5.0-liter V8 dishes up a full 502 pound-feet of torque, which is good enough to shuttle the four-door to 60 mph in a scant 4.4 seconds. And, thanks to a start stop system and a few other fuel-saving tricks, the 2014 XFR-S gets away without being hit by the gas guzzler tax.

That's all good news, but we're just as excited about the fact that engineers managed to crank up the vehicle's chassis stiffness by a ludicrous 30 percent. Stiffer dampers and springs also give the car a little more poise, and a wide-open exhaust lets the whole world know you're kicking down their door. You know, in case the electric blue paint and wild body work didn't tip your hand. Check out the full gallery above for a closer look.
The success of Jaguar Land Rover in recent years has largely been down to a resurgent product lineup, but a recent move into the research and development will see the British-based, Indian-owned brands take the fight to its German rivals more aggressively than ever before.

JLR is investing 50 million pounds ($80,345,000, as of this writing) in a joint R&D center in central England. The move will more than triple its staff dedicated to research, from 150 to 500, with Wolfgang Epple, JLR's Director of Research and Technology telling Automotive News Europe, "In order to play among the big animals in automotive and to be anchored in the mind of customers you have to have offered something unique, to be first in market. We want to be one of the key premier automotive manufacturers."
Jaguar Land Rover's 50-million-pound contribution represents more than half of the 94-million-pound tab, on the so-called National Automotive Innovation Campus. Based at Warwick University, Tata's European Technical Center, Warwick Manufacturing Group and the Higher Education Funding Council, an agency of the British government, are all chipping in for the facility.
From our best guess, the Jaguar test mule shown in these spy shots could very well be our first glimpse at the next-generation Jaguar XF, due out around the 2016 model year. The current XF has been around for five years already (launched in 2008), and this mule is likely testing powertrain or chassis components for a new version of the midsize Jaguar sedan.
With what seems to be a stretched wheelbase and wider track, this is almost certainly not a mule for the 3 Series-fighting Jaguar XS. That being said, though, there is also the outside chance that this could be a mule for other future Jaguar Land Rover products including a production version of the Jaguar C-X17 crossover or the Jaguar-based Range Rover Grand Evoque. Only time will tell what these images truly foretell, but if nothing else, it proves that Jaguar is definitely staying busy these days.
