Jaguar XKR

MAN, MEET MACHINE.

Potential XKR drivers face such tough choices as which colour to have their twin-needle, stitched Italian soft-grain leather, so you could be forgiven for thinking this Jaguar’s not about performance. You might also fear that there are faster cars in a straight line, nippier cars through the tight downtown streets or more rugged cars for when the going gets tough. And you’d be dead right. But there’s practically nothing in Most Wanted that combines fast, agile and rugged so well, in a single, beautiful, British package. The XKR’s powerful 5-liter engine delivers 461 lb/ft of torque and hits 60 miles-an-hour in 4.6 seconds to the accompaniment of a glorious V8 soundtrack. And while you lay low, waiting for the heat to die down, you can always admire the stitching.
