This is an immaculate Jaguar XK8 that's been exceptionally well taken care of. Every option available on this rare
find except xenon and nav. Includes Motorola blue tooth hands-free & backup sensors. Color is Topaz (SEC) and looks
like "champagne", light beige top, and cashmere interior (SDZ). Michelin ZR-19-255/245-40's. I found this car in
"like-new"condition in Sarasota, FL, with 15K miles, traded in by the original (lady) owner for a brand new XK
model at the dealer. I've hand washed, waxed, garage-kept and maintained this car like new since. Of all of the
sports/foreign and performance cars I have owned, I have held on to this one the longest! This is by far the
sweetest ride, best looking, complete head-turner of all! I've had people walk up and make offers on it many times.
Classic Jag styling and looks on the 2006 are the last of it's kind making this an extremely rare find! Equipped
with an upgraded powerful 4.2 litre engine, this car loves the highway, rides like a dream! Or, take the top down
and buckle on the leather boot to cruise with an elegant open-air look and feel.
Exterior has BRAND NEW, OEM factory color flawless paint job ($7000.00), not a scratch on it and the even the rims
are perfect -it looks like it's sitting in the showroom!!!! Interior shows very minor wear on driver's seat. No
mechanical issues, and the only repairs since I have owned this beauty were a seal gasket, water hose, thermostat
and reservoir replaced. Otherwise just standard maint, synthetic oil changes, tires, brakes, shocks, struts and
wipers. Serviced at the same shop in Vero Beach, FL by my favorite mechanic, all service records available. The
carfax was a minor side-scrape from a lane change(my fault-so insurance claimed for both vehicles at $5K-2013),
replaced R mirror, RF quarter and door scratched-no body fill, and no other accidents or damage ever.
This car has been garage kept all of it's life and I have enjoyed driving it-my new office doesn't have covered
parking. Ask for more details and get a fine, well cared for and very rare, refined sports car lover's dream!
Faster than a Vette, and smoother than a Rolls! You'll love this car as much as I have!

Jaguar XF gets performance-look R-Sport trim

Wed, 26 Feb 2014 11:00:00 EST

If you're looking for all the style of a sports sedan but without the added expense of springing for a full-on performance model (and keeping it fed with fuel and fresh tires), most European automakers will gladly hook you up with an all-show, no-go package. BMW has its M-Sport aero kits, Audi its S-Line, and Mercedes its AMG Sport packs. And now Jaguar is getting in on the action with the launch of the new R-Sport line.
Set to be introduced on the XF at the Geneva Motor Show, the R-Sport trim at least some of the flash of the XFR or XFR-S but with a more economical engine and a relatively accessible price of entry. (This is, after all, still a Jag.) The XF R-Sport is distinguished by a sportier front bumper, side sills, rear spoiler, 17-inch wheels and unique badging to set it apart from any "ordinary" Jaguar XF. The interior is upgraded as well, and there's an optional black styling pack to take things even further.
Jaguar is offering the XF R-Sport in either sedan or wagon form with the 2.2-liter turbodiesel producing 161 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque, fitted with a spot-start system to make it a far more frugal option than the 5.0-liter supercharged V8 in the real deal. Although this version won't be coming to US as you see it here, Jaguar tells Autoblog it's always possible it'll produce a similar aesthetic treatment for the North American market - just don't count on such models arriving under diesel motivation. We'll take a closer look at them in Geneva next week, but for now, you can check out the gallery and press release below for an idea of what to expect.

Exploring Romania's storied Transfagarasan Highway in a Jaguar F-Type V8 S

Wed, 05 Feb 2014 14:59:00 EST

Top Gear is, in some ways, a victim of its own success. When it declares a road the best in the world, like it did with Romania's Transfagarasan Highway during its 14th season, you can't blame people for showing up and wanting to check it out. Of course, then the road becomes clogged with tourists and is less fun to drive.
But is it possible that there is an even better driving road in Romania? One that is higher, smoother and undiscovered by tourists - at least not yet? Henry Catchpole from Evo thinks that he may have found it while driving a Jaguar F-Type V8 S that makes a sound that evokes a World War II British fighter plane.
Scroll down to take a brief trip to Romania and bask in the wonderful roar of this topless Jaguar.

2013 Jaguar XF 3.0 Supercharged

Mon, 08 Jul 2013 15:00:00 EST

Generally speaking, I don't get too upset about the growing need to replace displacement in modern cars. Sure, there are exceptions (don't you touch my 6.2-liter AMG V8), but honestly, the industry's new forced induction powertrains are all lovely, and their gains in fuel economy - when they actually make good on them - can make up for the ever-so-slight losses in performance or driving character.
But I'm having a hard time keeping my chin up with this Jaguar XF. For the 2013 model year, Jaguar has killed off the naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V8 and fitted a supercharged 3.0-liter V6 with an eight-speed automatic in its place (and even offers a turbocharged four-cylinder engine below that). That all sounds perfectly well and good, but a week behind the wheel of this British Racing Green sedan just left me missing that V8. And then some.
