Essentially a long wheelbase, supercharged, more upscale XJ8, the XJ Super V8 first debuted in Europe in 2003, boasting the new X350 body style. The Jaguar XJ Super V8 represents one of the fastest and most expensive members of the XJ family with its supercharged 4.2L V8 engine (mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission) that produces 400 hp @ 6,100 rpm, 413 lb-ft of torque @ 3,500 rpm.
The elegantly-styled 2008 Jaguar XJ Super V8 is the epitome of luxury. For the driver, Jaguar included perks like a heated steering wheel, heating/cooling seats, a navigation system, a sunroof, and a premium Alpine audio system. However, life for the backseat passenger isn’t so bad. Tray tables, independent climate and audio control, DVD screens, sun shades, and reclining seats are just a few of the perks of not getting shotgun in the XJ Super V8.
