Have any of you driven a new Jaguar XJ?

I drove one last weekend and it was incredible! My mom has a 2001 Jaguar S-Type 4.0 on lease and I don't care for it. At least the 2003 (and 2005) S-Types are much improved in every way. (our S-Type will be "replaced" with a 95 E320 Wagon that my parents got last September once the lease goes up.)

The 5 fastest car I've ever ridden in include the following: Ferrari 550 Barchetta, 93 BMW E34 (E34 is a BMW 5 Series from 89 to 95) BMW M5, an AC Cobra replica with a 427, a 2002 Porsche 911 Carrera with a manual, and now a 2004 Jaguar XJR.

It had the optional 20 inch BBS wheels yet still rode very well. It was much more comfortable, had more room, was easier to see out of, more refined yet much more fun to drive, had better steering, braking, handling, had a much better sound system, fit/finsh..etc.

Even the shortest on-ramps pose little problems for the 04 XJR. My dad punched it from around 55 and it just THRUSTED forward; it was like into orbit.

If you are looking at buying/leasing a new, big luxury car, I would highly recommend the 2004 Jaguar XJR.
