The current Mk VIII X351 model XJ is a major step forward for Jaguar in it's bid to keep up with the likes of Mercedes and BMW in the luxury car market. The styling of the eight generation XJ was a major break with previous models, which could all be recognised as having the same XJ DNA. The move has not proved universally popular, with the new car looking too large in our opinion. The interior is also bought up to date with a full LCD dashboard.

There can be no faulting the engineering though. A 500bhp sup[ercarged V8 is finally a match for the competition in the shape of the BMW 7-series and Mercedes S-Class.

The XJR was updated in 2014 with many new styling features and driver aids such as LED headlights, lane assist and a 360 degree camera system. Start/Stop technology was also introduced to aid the fuel consumption figures. Power was also increased to a hefty 542bhp, now despatching 0-60mph in just four and a half seconds with a 174mph limited stop speed.
