I finally found a worthy replacement to my Nissan Maxima and Lexus ES300!


Currently, in the 0-60 MPH sprint, the XJR ranks 2nd fastest production sedan in the world after the BMW M5, (at least that's what Jaguar says so that's a biased source of info). Times range from 5.1-5.4 secs. according to Motor Trend. Here are some good reviews of the XJR from 1999. Loaded with luxurious amenities, this car is unreal. The engine produces 370 HP thanks to the V8 power and supercharger. How about the 1/4 mile? Well here's a test done by Popular Mechanics where it was compared to a Dodge Viper, Mustang Cobra, etc. It wasn't too bad actually, making the rankings: 12th Jaguar XJR, 13.62 secs @ 104.21 MPH

Future Mods? If I had money and I was in the UK, I'd super-supercharge it to 450 hp!!. Anyway, here are more car performance stats from a diff. site: click here.
