Sounds awesome. On a related note, do we have any Jaguar fans here ? I've been looking at used XJ6's, from 95-97, and from 90-94. I like the looks of the 95-97 a littel better, but they're a little more than I want spend so far. But I'd like more opinions about the wisdom and/or experience of dealing with used Jags.

the new engine raises the fuel economy to a respectable 18 city and 28 highway

That's about the same milage the stock Corvette's 350 gets. Better than the 6 cylinder in my car. :(

But just a hair under $60,000 for the XJ8, Jaguar has seen to it that you won't have to spend more to get more.
damn, thats cheap for a top of the line luxury sedan

the jag weighs in about 600 lbs more and isn't nearly as slippery as the 'vette
