The “R” version of the XK is the first fully worthy successor to the legendary XKE that Jaguar has produced in the 40 years that have elapsed since the demise of the original model.

I came to be intoxicated by the combination of style and power by the end of my week with the XK-R, which is what owning a personal luxury-sport coupe is all about. Who needs practicality when you have a 510 horsepower Jaguar coupe?

It is easy to understand why the XKR-S should be extremely popular with Jaguar fans, with its uncharacteristic speed and lithe cornering abilities. And when it comes to rarity, bombshell looks, and a truly earth-shaking voice, this cat’s got them all beat.

Despite all the hardcore trimmings and its immense capabilities, it’s tough for the XKR-S to escape its routes as a Grand Tourer – but it may perhaps be the grandest of them all, able to dice it up with the best while making minimal sacrifices.

The XKR-S was built for three things: going fast, screaming like a banshee and making passengers wet themselves. Without a doubt, the XKR-S is a significant evolution of the standard XK.

The XKR-S manages to balance Jaguar’s historic mantle of grace with pace, a surprisingly cohesive package that can be driven every day and savaged on weekends.

Exquisite, rare, and fast, the XKR-S convertible’s refinement and beauty are balanced against its brutal potency.

The XKR-S represents the pinnacle for the brand. Jaguar’s goal of building a gentleman’s race car that you could drive to the racetrack, have some fun in, then go out and have a casual drive around town, has been successful.

Still one of the most tasteful and able cars in its class, the Jaguar XK excels as a luxury GT. It makes for a sensational driving experience. Elegant exterior design and luxe interior pay homage to Jaguar’s past while bringing it into the future.

Last year, the Jaguar XKR-S emerged from the darkness. Gone were the touring pretensions and a full on, hardcore sports car was released to the world. What you get is a loud and raucous convertible that is tons of fun.

With nimbleness that matches its speed, the XKR-S convertible is as dynamically satisfying as any droptop in its class. We’re comfortable saying that a manlier Jaguar convertible has never roamed the streets.

The XK is a stunning car to look at, to be inside, and to drive. It feels special and substantive, and everything that makes it so is standard. Jaguar fortified it with this bigger engine. We agree. (And if somebody could permanently banish the electrical gremlins, we’d agree to that, too.)
