The 2010 Jaguar XK represents the latest generation of a highly regarded lineage that truly embodies automotive beauty and performance. The XK coupes and convertibles were fully redesigned in 2007, now with a lighter aluminum body.
Powerplant options are completely new for 2010, with a 385 horsepower 5-liter V8, and a supercharged V8 of the same displacement, found on the XFR, which puts out 510 horsepower. A 6-speed automatic transmission with sequential shift mode sends power to the rear wheels.
Fuel economy for the XK ranges from 15 miles per gallon city, to 24 miles per gallon highway.
While all XK models offer V8 power, it is the XKR that drives the notion of performance home. In addition to the supercharged power plant, the XKR sports 19-inch alloy wheels, a firmer suspension with recalibrated adaptive settings, larger front brakes, a mesh grille and quad-tipped exhausts.
As with all Jaguars, the interior is a sea of leather and wood and includes all the luxury amenities one would expect.
Initial base MSRP for the 2010 Jaguar XK is $82,150. A fully-loaded XKR will top out at $108,000. All Jaguars are backed by a 4-year, 50,000-mile power train warranty.
Those seeking an expertly crafted coupe or convertible that blends luxury and performance should take a close look at the elegant, yet potent Jaguar XK.
