Published: Jan 28, 2013
Description: The British really do know a thing or two about luxury. Perhaps it's related to the fact they still actually have royalty and an aristocracy, but whatever the reason, they are quite good at it. T...

Brock they are. Designed and built in the midlands
Brock Bulbul Jan 29, 2013
Jag isn't British anymore though.
Stephen Reed Warren II Jan 28, 2013
I still think the S class is top dog. The XJ is still pretty sick
Ashton Summers Jan 28, 2013
This is would be my pick. Always like the way Jags feel behind the wheel.
Mark Fei Ling Jan 28, 2013
Thanks car buzz
António Villas-Boas Jan 28, 2013
I always preferred the XJ to Mercs S and BMW 7, they are just classier and serve the purpose of a luxury flagship better. The build quality and dynamics are not as good but they are confortable and make you feel special. That's what a luxury sedan is
Mark Fei Ling Jan 28, 2013
Carbuzz use alpina 7 as BMW story cover picture, and for jaguar XJ, they use less favorite old regular XJ pic.... That's how media guide people
Tin Nguyen Jan 29, 2013
I'm very impressed. Glad Jag has decided to move away from the traditional xj design.
Jordan Nishida Jan 28, 2013
Love it. It's better than the s class and the 7series.
Jacob Burford Jan 28, 2013
Best car in the class by far! Looks the best, and from what I hear is the best to drive too!
Tyler Tarbox Jan 28, 2013
Fantastic looking car. Would be my choice
Janak Solanki Jan 28, 2013
Keeping it classy. Great job Jaguar
Craig Lafey Jan 28, 2013
@Dylan. Agreed. They had a few of these at the Philly autoshow this past weekend and my jaw dropped
Mohammed Serwan Jan 28, 2013
Beautiful but not as luxury as German cars
Matt Piccolo Jan 28, 2013
Such a beautiful car?
Author Norman R. Colson Jan 28, 2013
They do look great in person especially coming out the car wash... Rims & grill shining!
Dylan Bruder Jan 28, 2013
They do look great in person
Jordan Zucker Jan 28, 2013
I think this looks beautiful.
Janak Solanki Jan 29, 2013
I would give this car a straight 10 but I don't think the back looks as good as the front.
Craig Lafey Jan 28, 2013
I want it now!!
Paul Dickey Jan 28, 2013
Looks so good.
Description: The XJ debuted in 1968 as a replacement for the Jaguar 420, a car which it probably won't surprise you to learn was already looking fairly ancient. The car had a modern and attractive body and wa...

The Jaguar 420? Must have been the part of the sixties when pot wasn't popular?
Description: Even though the car was designed with the idea of eventually fitting it with a V12, the engine barely fit, and the smaller radiator that needed to be used would sometimes lead to overheating. A rebadg...

They have stucked with this design for several decades. All they do is refresh a little here and there but the basic form stayed the same just like the 911.
Sam Biggin Jan 29, 2013
This was an awesome car
Bala Uncc Jan 29, 2013
Looks ugly
Jordan Nishida Jan 28, 2013
Jaguars are awesome
Ron Vinson Jan 28, 2013
Timeless and classic!
Tyler Tarbox Jan 28, 2013
New model is such an improvement over this
Matt Piccolo Jan 28, 2013
Not bad
Dimitry Mikhailovich Malikov Jan 28, 2013
My favorite Jaguar of all time.
Stephen Reed Warren II Jan 28, 2013
This car had a classy, more elegant feel to it than the current model. Seems like it went from posh lux to modern sport
Scuttle Buttocks Jan 28, 2013
Ugh ugly imho
Thomas William Tuer-sipos Jan 28, 2013
I love this gen of the xj, awsome looking
Isaac Jacob Jimenez Jan 28, 2013
This is called luxury sport
David Parenti Jan 28, 2013
I have a set of these wheels. I'd like to see a still shot of the car.
Dylan Bruder Jan 28, 2013
Not my kind of style
Paul Dickey Jan 28, 2013
I still like these.
Andrew McNeal Jan 28, 2013
Don't like the mesh grill but otherwise looks good
Rodrigo Allen Jan 28, 2013
The old Jaguars had so much more class than the current ones.
Dimitry Mikhailovich Malikov Jan 28, 2013
Love it!
Description: This isn't widely known, and even though Diamler-badged versions of the XJ were produced all the way up until 2005, it remains a far rarer version of the car. The XJ got a facelift in 1973 and be...

Description: Rarest of all is the Double-Six coupe, with just over 400 units made, making it the most valuable collector's XJ variant today. The car went through several more mild changes over the next couple...

You do have to admit, tho, that the LFA has a less practical interior than this... Look, cup holders. XD TG
Zeus Mocha Jan 29, 2013
I always liked the XJ. Never got in one till about a week ago. Hands down one of the sexiest interiors in the market only behind the LFA.
Jordan Nishida Jan 28, 2013
Fantastic interior.
Jacob Burford Jan 28, 2013
Gorgeous design! I like the XF interior, but I wish they pulled more influence from this into it!
Tyler Tarbox Jan 28, 2013
So nice. Definitely better than the German alternatives
Ray Liu Jan 28, 2013
If this is not luxury what is?
Tim Preisinger Jan 28, 2013
Doesn't matter what model or year jag, I have always loved there interiors
Cole Stovall Oct 23, 2013
Porobably the most boring engine I've ever seen. I hate plastic.
Description: At the time of the 2009 redesign, the XJ was actually offering plenty of high-tech gadgets like Bluetooth, sat nav and adaptive cruise control, but the Germans were far superior at showing this techno...

Description: It seems that not only the XJ but also the Jaguar brand as a whole sunk pretty low over time, and it's going to take a while before it fully recovers. We'd suggest a halo car, after all, thi...

Yes. Would love to see a modern XJ220 to compete with cars like the Aventador
Esam Mohammad Jan 30, 2013
I prefer audis
Adam Thomson Jan 29, 2013
Wonderful car!!
Sam Biggin Jan 29, 2013
This everytime
Bala Uncc Jan 29, 2013
Would take Audi instead
Stephen Reed Warren II Jan 28, 2013
I'd take a new S550 any day. Or if this is the supersport then I'd take an S65 AMG over this any day
Wmg Chinchilla Jan 28, 2013
Such a handsome beast
Matt Piccolo Jan 28, 2013
I'd take this over a mb or BMW without question
Ray Liu Jan 28, 2013
Better looking than most BMWs and MBs
Cian Mac Gearailt Jan 28, 2013
I must say other then the monster from massarati they do trump all big sedans in looks
Adam Thomson Jan 28, 2013
Much better than a mercedes, i love it!!!?!
Irvin Jose Centeno Jan 28, 2013
Supersport!
Domenic Biamonte Nov 11, 2013
@Tyler that is Blenheim Palace. Former home to the Dukes of Marlborough.
Tyler Tarbox Jan 28, 2013
What the hell is that place behind it?
