Another classic roadster that breaks my rule on (effective) two-seaters, the XK8 wraps the traditional British fittings of burl walnut and leather in an absolutely elegant body.
Unlike some in this price class, the controls of the Jag are straightforward and the car can be driven with effortless ease. I'd replace the touch-screen and rotary transmission shifter with toggles and a stick, but otherwise this car is both an esthetic and dynamic delight. It's a worthy successor to the original E-type on display in the Museum of Modern Art.
