The Jaguar XJ has been in production since 1968, and it is considered one of the world’s classic cars. The company redesigned it in 2003, but they mistakenly believed that the outside appearance should stay the same, even though everything beneath the shell had been completely re-engineered. The newly-redesigned car attracted a bevy of criticism for its unchanged exterior, and the company responded by completely redesigning its appearance. The Jaguar XJ 2011 was the result.
Jaguar’s XJ Supersport retails for $110,200, and given the painstaking craftsmanship involved in its redesign, it’s easy to see why. Its ability to go from zero to 60 in 4.7 seconds is pretty impressive too. However, after factoring in over $4,000 in repair costs, $5,000 in maintenance costs and $8,000 in taxes and fees, buyers should expect to pay over $132,000 for five years of ownership.
Note: Costs are for the Jaguar XJ Supersport 4dr Sedan (5.0L 8cyl S/C 6A).
