THE JAGUAR XJ.8

JAGUAR XJ.8Introduced in 2003, the new JAGUAR XJ.8 is a rare combination of external conservatism inherent in machines of this brand, with ultra-modern filling, which is equally state of the art technology. The conservative appearance — fully aluminium monocoque, assembled without welding, glue and rivets; aluminum V-engines (“six” and three “eight”) with a capacity from 238 to 395 HP, mated to a six-speed hydromechanical automatic; multi-link air suspension and automatically adjustable shock absorbers and, of course, a full set of the most modern electronic control systems.

 
According to the creators of the vehicle, the rigidity of the aluminum body is 60 percent higher stiffness of steel, and it weighs 40 percent less. Accordingly, the curb weight of the new JAGUAR XJ.8 to 200 kg less than the mass of the steel predecessor.
 
The car’s interior is designed in the spirit of the British low-key luxury, which is dominated by natural wood, real leather and high quality soft plastics. A symmetrical instrument panel with the three basic instruments are made deliberately conservative.
