I used to own one of these. Beautiful car inside and out. Very quiet at high speeds. The five speed automatic made it slower than it should have been, and I always thought Jaguar should have had a six speed manual option for this car. Wonderful interior materials, and decent GT handling, but the auto transmission made it unsuitable for serious track use. Lots of reliability issues as well.
