JAGUAR XJR (X306)
1994-1997 Price: £3800
This was the first supercharged XJR and a worthy challenger to the BMW M5 and Mercedes E500 super-saloons of the day. The 4.0-litre straight six was good for 326bhp and the rare fivespeed Getrag manual gearboxes have a reputation for reliability, although the auto is a better fit. Modern Jag owes a lot to this svelte contender.
