A great GT - luxury and performance
By owner1 on

Vehicle

2008 Jaguar XK-Series XKR 2dr Coupe (4.2L 8cyl S/C 6A)

Review

I have owned 3 porsches and several bmws as well. Had every intention of purchasing m6 until completed test drives. Test drove 911s, m6, and maserati GT in addition to xkr. An absolutely beautiful car inside and out. I thought performed better (felt over engineered) and far better looking vehicle than m6, had much better luxury appointments (like gorgeous suede cabin top interior and superior nav) and much better curb appeal than 911s. While 911s is better handling car, I found the xkr to be quicker. While the maserati gt is an equally if not more elegant car, it didn't come close to xkr on drive performance

Favorite Features

extraordinarily quick acceleration from 75-120, tremendous variable exhaust tones, one of the most beautiful cars on road

Suggested Improvements

should lengthen the car to accomodate 4 (limited headroom), the front end starts to flutter a bit at 130 and above
