The XK8 may have been on our roads since 1996 but you still give it a look as it goes past, don't you? It's got James Bond looks, with performance to match. Grand Touring ability makes it a pleasure over long distances. The supercharged R version is seriously rapid and makes a good budget alternative to an Aston Martin or a Ferrari GT. Thankfully in the UK it deals just effectively with traffic jams and the golf club car park.

An all-new car was launched in 2006.
