As goes the Jaguar XJ, so does its Daimler-badged luxo-cousin. The last Daimler Super Eight bowed in 2005, and was essentially a very loaded-up and luxury-oriented XJ sedan sporting a six-figure price tag. Now that the XJ has undergone an update, it makes sense that the Daimler Super Eight does as well. Power comes from the same 400 hp 4.2L supercharged V8 as before. The bodywork, like the XJ's, is made of aluminum, and the rest of the changes are in the details, like standard 19" wheels instead of 18-inchers (dubs are now an option, too), a freshened grille, and new front and rear bumpers. Backseat passengers still enjoy plenty of legroom and copious amounts of leather and wood. Rear-seat entertainment (DVD, MP3 compatibility, etc.) is also part of the deal, and occupants' shoes will have the privilege of soiling lambswool carpets embroidered with the Daimler "D" logo.
