At 40,000 miles it did 0 to 60 in 4.7 seconds and the 1/4 mile in 13.2 seconds at 107 mph.
The new aluminum Jaguar XJ has a 6 speed ZF automatic transmission in case you were wondering.
The new XJR and Super V8 both come standard with Brembo brakes.

- check for Nikasil problems in the engine. It affects 1998-2000 XJs.
- Brembo brakes came standard on the 2002 XJR 100 along with BBS wheels. The "100" celebrated the 100 anniversary of the birth of Jaguar's founder, Sir William Lyons. Brembo brakes also came with the optional R1 package on the 2003 XJR along with BBS wheels.
- check for timing chain tensioners for 1998-2000 XJs

The new XJ's outer headlights are larger than the inner headlights like the 1968 XJ. The previous XJ's headlights were the same size.
The new XJ's wheels are pushed to closer to the corner's of the car for better handling and stability.
The previous XJ did not have its wheels pushed out to the corners.

And it all sounds very promising for Jaguar, and Ford. Thanks for sharing.
