WHATCAR? AWARD XKR COUPE BEST BUY
To quote What Car? 'Jaguar creates high expectations, and not just because it's a famous British brand with a proud heritage. The XKR is a very special car… the lightweight aluminium body, the 420bhp supercharged 4.2 litre V8 engine and smooth six-speed automatic gearbox all make it a wonderful driving machine.'
'The XKR offers the perfect combination of supreme tourer with sporty handling. On long journeys it's comfortable, smooth and unflustered, but when you want to hustle it along on a tight twisty road, it will stay with you all the way.''The XKR's main rival, the BMW M6, gives it a good run for its money, but the driving experience isn't quite as good as that offered by the Jaguar.''In short, the XKR looks and drives better than all of its rivals.'
