Sexy look and Sport

2010 Jaguar XK XKR 2dr Coupe (5.0L 8cyl S/C 6A)
I finally purchased a 2010 XKR Coupe, after testing Mercedes E63 AMG, BMW Ms, Audi S5/6.. My wife immediately felt in love when she saw it "It's like an Ashton Martin !" she told me, yep we know why, same designer. That was a good start! But not enough for me. On paper the specifications are already very impressive, but it's really when you start to drive it that you realize what it really means. This car has it all ! It can be very soft and you can feel like in a lounge, but in a minute later, you switch on the "S" mode, press the accelerator, and you truly have a race car, and you can't believe you are already over speed limit (noises very well filtered). An eye catcher for sure!
Great Performance, but also the excellent work inside the car to filter road noises Seats are very comfortable, and perfectly adjustable. Strong brakes, good fuel performance (No Gas Guzzler tax), Fantastic Sound system. The Look is very "sexy" (In Ultimate Black with 20 Inch Wheels in particular)
Not impressed by the Nag. System (Previous Generation, DVD base). Need to move to HD base. Back seats are a joke, you can't seat adults (But you don't want anyone to seat behind anyway!) While we have the back parking sensors, I would also want a backup camera to help.
