That wasnt in 1998 when the totally revamped the XJR, so the credit goes to Britain, and there designers. Ford had nothing to do with the XJR we know, thats a goddamn disgrace the day they put any engineering into that car. And a 1998 Jag XJR used is about 30k, which isnt bad. SLEEPER. Running a sedan thats 4000 lbs and running low 13'* stock, DAMN

And Jim, my dad DOES have the Autobahn package. I can tell because

A. Weve had it to 190 km/h
B. At 120 km/h, it revs about 2300 rpm, which means the gearing is pretty tall......
C. Requires V rated 225/60/R16 tires

Within a few years, annual production raised from 35,000 cars to an expected 90,000 cars of 1999. Another 200,000 cars will be added in 2001 when a baby Jaguar is launched, then followed by a small roadster. In other words, Jaguar’* volume will soon be 10-folded!

The ambitious growth is managed by Ford’* PAG (Premier Automotive Group) headed by ex-BMW man Wolfgang Reitzle. PAG also consists of Aston Martin, Lincoln, Land Rover and Volvo. Undoubtedly, Jaguar will share more and more parts and technology with Ford and members of PAG - the *-Type is already based on Lincoln LS’* platform, the baby Jaguar will be derived from the next Mondeo.

Maybe so...

Autobahn outfitted Aurora will have

Michelin Energy MXV4 V-Rated wheels at 235/60/R16 will probably have the alloy rims..lighter...could be wrong. The ultimate test...take a picture of your RPO code sticker under the spare tire lid. Look for QQX

If you have that, you have Autobahn

92, by base i meant 3.48 geared one, 3.71 for the autobahn, but i guess he has the autobahn. hey canucks, how fast is 190k/m in mph?? lol ive done 139mph....autobahn verified

i know you may hate ford, but Jags where Extremely unreliable (especially in the electrical dept) before ford took over, waaay before 98. like i said britian may have designed it but america (ford) made it. 30k for a 6 year old car? jeez, a 98 aurora will set you back about 9k.

jim, they all have the same rims! only some have the chrome rim option.
