WHAT IS XK?
XK is the Grand Tourer with the heart and soul of a sports car. Enjoy refined performance, luxury and the convenience of a 2+2 seating configuration. Four models are available: XK, XK Portfolio, XKR and XKR-S. All have an advanced all-aluminium body structure, are powered by 5.0 V8 engines and are available as Coupé or Convertible.
Get ready to soak up the sun. XK Convertible delivers superb levels of driveability, comfort and refinement.
Experience true grand tourer performance with the power, style and luxury that makes every journey unforgettable.
Every surface on XK is sculpted to create a bold visual energy. From the dramatic front bumper design and chrome outlined air intakes to the distinctive side power vents and muscular haunches, it promises both luxury and immense power. Distinctive LED daytime running lights frame XK’s advanced Bi-function HID Xenon headlamps and present a unique visual signature.
A high performance Grand Tourer, every aspect of XK is ergonomically designed to enhance the driving experience. Whether crossing town or continent, the 2+2 configuration provides rear seats for occasional use or as a convenient storage area. For additional practicality, Convertible models have a boot capacity of up to 313 litres, rising to 330 litres on Coupé models.
XK never compromises on luxury – from the modern textures, flawless craftsmanship and the signature phosphor blue mood lighting to the triple-lined canvas for XK Convertible’s hood that, when stowed, minimises encroachment on the bootspace.
The smooth delivery of power from a choice of three formidable 5.0 litre engines: Jaguar’s highly acclaimed V8; a V8 Supercharged delivering 510PS; and in the XKR-S model, a V8 Supercharged producing an astounding 550PS.
The 5.0 litre V8 385PS engine that powers the XK and XK Portfolio models produces exhilarating acceleration with effortless refinement.
More dramatic performance comes with the 5.0 litre V8 Supercharged engine fitted with a sixth-generation, twin vortex system supercharger. This all-aluminium quad-cam powerplant is available in two versions, 510PS and 550PS, powering XKR and XKR-S respectively. It offers a linear delivery of performance, and instant access to high levels of torque at all engine speeds.
Feel the intuitive control that connects you to the road. XK is a car with handling so responsive it feels instinctive. The ZF 6-speed automatic transmission is intelligent, with adaptive software that automatically modifies the gearshift strategy to ensure the right gear is selected for every situation. Electronic dampers constantly adjust the suspension, adapting smoothly to the road conditions, to achieve the optimum balance between ride and handling, as well as delivering a peerlessly refined driving experience.Driving Dynamics
Experience the sheer exhilaration of a convertible that offers both comfort and superb handling. The XK Convertible’s roof is designed for optimum convenience, opening and stowing in a mere 18 seconds. Compact enough to reduce buffeting at speed and to retain the XK’s iconic shape, the roof folds itself neatly beneath a striking aluminium tonneau, seamlessly flush within the body.
Designed to deliver outstanding protection from the elements and traffic noise, the triple-layer material is laminated to provide a taut and waterproof outer coat, and incorporates Jaguar’s innovative ultra-thin insulation.Exteriors
Core to XK’s outstanding performance and agility is its all-aluminium body. Formed in this lightweight metal using engineering techniques developed in the aerospace industry, XK’s aluminium body’s exceptional stiffness gives the driver precise, agile handling and pin-sharp cornering.
In addition, aluminium construction offers shorter braking distances and improved fuel economy and emissions.
What’s more, 50 percent of XK’s body structure is made from recycled aluminium as part of Jaguar’s commitment to sustainability.
Get closer and connect with your XK through its meticulously designed and engineered seats. Seamlessly integrated into the car’s construction, they not only hold and support through every turn, they can heat and cool as well. And, at the press of a button, they can recall any shape or position preferred by different drivers. A superb example of Jaguar’s craftsmanship and attention to detail, the seats have been manually tested through 25,000 physical sittings and subjected to five weeks of humidity and temperature extremes to ensure they work perfectly.
Three seat styles are available, each with detailed finishing and a comprehensive range of colour choice. Sports Seats upholstered in Bond grain leather are standard in XK. For even greater comfort 16/16 way Luxury Seats, standard in XK Portfolio and XKR models, are upholstered in twin-stitched soft grain leather and feature both heating and cooling. Precision-crafted Performance Seats, standard in XKR-S and available as an option on XK Portfolio and XKR, offer individually fine-tuned lumbar support and sculpted side bolsters for exceptional lateral support during hard cornering.
With XK, the journey begins as you approach it. With Keyless entry*, the Jaguar Smart Key System™ in your bag or pocket has already unlocked the doors. Settling in to the luxurious leather seats, the Start button glows red on the centre console. Press, and the JaguarDrive Selector™ rises into the palm of your hand.
The dashboard illuminates as the cabin features are highlighted in a cool phosphor blue. The centre console’s 7 inch Touch-screen lights up. Simple and intuitive; it controls satellite navigation, climate control, the Bluetooth® telephone system or in-car audio.
