2008 Jaguar Vanden Plas
Available for sale at Birkshire Automobiles. Stately and elegant, this Jaguar XJ VDP is everything a proper British motorcar should be. With its combination of modern construction and traditional styling, the XJ covers ground with appropriate dignity and real sporting spirit.
The long-wheelbase VDP, manages to feel a bit smaller than its competitors from behind the wheel. The wide, low-slung cabin may have something to do with that, but most of the credit should go to the XJ's rigid aluminum chassis, which contributes to a curb weight that's about 600 pounds lighter than its luxury-sedan competitors.
This car is a tomb. Even at 100 mph, the cabin hushes wind and road noise. And with its soft leather trim, burl walnut veneer and commodious space, the Jag wouldn't be a bad place to spend your eternal slumber either. The 14-way front seats strike a nice balance between plush comfort and firm support, while rear passengers will find the long-wheelbase body equally welcoming.
This Jaguar Vanden Plas models employ a 4.2-liter V8 that sends power to the rear wheels via a six-speed automatic transmission. It's naturally aspirated and makes 300 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque.
