Jaguar made its name in the 1950s with a series of elegantly-styled sports cars and luxury saloons. Now 2009, the company is reclaiming its place on the world’s most sporting luxury cars list. After revealing images and specifications for their XFR model, Jaguar has done the same for the XK and the supercharged XKR. Jaguar’s 2+2 grand tourer has been completely revamped and now features the new generation of powerful yet economical engines. The 5.0-litre V8 is the choice of power for the XK. It makes 385PS and 380lb ft of torque. For the XKR a supercharger has been installed and it helps the car push out 510PS and 461lb ft of torque. The XK places 5.2 seconds on the board for its 0 – 60mph time. The XKR runs 0 – 60mph in 4.6 seconds and its 0 – 100km/h time is 4.8 seconds. The XK and XKR’s 6-speed automatic gearbox has additional clutch plates and an uprated torque converter added to accommodate the extra power.Three versions of the car are offered; XK, XK Portfolio and XKR and all three are available in coupe or convertible body styles.
