Illustration for article titled The V8 Euro Beasts of 2001

2001 was an awesome time to be in the market for a full-size European V8 performance-tuned luxobarge. Which of these four from that year would tempt you the most?


1. Jaguar XJR

2. Mercedes-Benz S55 AMG

3. Dinan 7

4. Audi S8

Admittedly, the Jag, Merc, and Audi are all factory offerings, and the BMW is an aftermarket upgrade...but competitive all the same. I do wish BMW had built an E38 M7, but Dinan did an excellent job picking up the slack!
