Default 0-60 times for X350 (non-R)

What is the published 0-60 and quartermile time/speed for the X350 XJ8? All I can seem to find is the times for the XJR.

There are very few magazine articles for the XJ8 non-R! I guess nobody was interested?

Default 0 to 60 mph times

In the UK 2007 model year brochure they list the following times

2.7 litre V6 diesel 7.8 seconds
3.0 litre V6 petrol 7.8 seconds
4.2 litre V8 petrol 6.3 seconds
4.2 litre V8 Petrol supercharged 5.0 seconds

I actually have the earlier 3.5 litre V8 that they stopped producing and I think the time for mine is a bit over 7 seconds .

Hope this answers your question fully, all the best.

Remarkable times when you thnk how heavy the car is.....
I used to drag a 1749cc ford escort van that cost me thousands over the time and that had 0-60 of 5.3 (was fast for then ..but it went on to 115 in just over 10...) makes these beautiful cats all the more impressive.

Thanks for these precisions ,
I think these times are achieved in sport mode ? but who know the difference in acceleration between normal ans sport ?
