2012 Jaguar XF Supercharged: Kumbaya! XF 2.0 Spotted In The Wild

March 21, 2013

2012 Jaguar XF Supercharged

We had a kumbaya moment over the weekend when we came across this red 2013 Jaguar XF 2.0 Turbo while driving our 2012 Jaguar XF Supercharged long-termer.

So of course we just had to park appropriately for a photo of the two cats together.

One thing we know: We'll take the 470-horsepower rocket of a V8 in our long-termer any day. Sometimes, fuel economy be damned. The immediate thrust of the XF Supercharged is pure awesomeness.

    What do you think of red as a color for the XF? Y'all seem to really like your's. Been thinking about trading in my mid-life crisis ride for a pair of more sensible shoes. From your reviews, XF seems pretty sensible to me!

    You're not buying your own fuel. But then, if a new Jag isn't making you car-poor, fuel costs probably aren't much of an issue anyway.

    Honestly, if you're spending this much cashola on a car, you might as well get something you enjoy- otherwise what's the point? If the big engine is significantly more fun to you than the weedy 4-banger, then go for it. Definitely fuel economy be damned.
