Michael Philip Jagger, the man who formed the Rolling Stones is a true English rockstar. Not only does he have an attitude to kill he also has the performance to match with his powerhouse vocals. The same is the case with the car in question here, the new Jaguar XK-R. Not only is it absolutely gorgeous, but it’s also a ferocious animal that can be difficult to tame, once you get behind the wheel. A dedicated driver’s machine, it boasts loads of raw power.
- The Jaguar XK comes with three variants: XK with a 385bhp 5-litre naturally aspirated engine, XK-R with a 510bhp 5-litre supercharged engine and the XK-RS with a 550bhp 5-litre supercharged engine.
- The current Jaguar XK-R is the second generation that went into production in 2006.
- The XK range got the new AJ-V8 Gen III 5-litre petrol engine in 2009.
- Until the launch of the XK-RS recently, the XK-R was the most powerful Jaguar ever produced.
