What's the used Jaguar XK sports like?

This is one of the best-looking luxury soft-tops you can buy - almost a dead ringer for the Aston Martin DB7, but much cheaper to buy.

The eight-cylinder engine burbles heartily and unleashes powerful acceleration with a prod of the throttle. That said, driving an XK8 is all about covering big distances effortlessly rather than charging about town, although 300bhp is enough to make it quick when need be. If you still want more, however, there's the 400bhp XKR, although these are rare and incredibly expensive to run.
