Benefits of Driving a 2013 Jaguar XK Coupe
The Jaguar XK is a personal luxury coupe or convertible, offering up lots of comfort with a solid dose of high performance. The Jaguar XK undercuts the price of the Mercedes SL, and is significantly sportier than the base BMW 6 series. None of its competition offers the same styling as the XK and the longevity of its basic design is a testament to Jaguar's design philosophy. Jaguar has always known how to build beautiful cars.
What's new for 2013?
The redesigned XK features new front and rear styling. Slimmer headlights incorporating LEDs replace the old units, while a new front grill significantly cleans up the look of the car while also keeping it recognizably a Jaguar. Five new colors have been added and a couple of new option packs are also available for increased customization. The XKR-S has also been introduced as an ultra-high performance model, positioned above the XKR. It is the most powerful road car Jaguar has ever built and promises to take driving excitement to another level.
- luxurious and beautiful
The Jaguar XK is available in three different trims, each defined by their engine. The basic XK comes with a 385 horsepower 5.0L V8, the XKR comes with a supercharged version of the 5.0L V8 making 510 horsepower and the XKR-S uses a tuned version of the supercharged engine to produce a staggering 550 horsepower. Performance from any of the models is good, but the XKR and XKR-S are capable of supercar-like acceleration. All three models can be equipped as either a coupe or a convertible, with convertibles costing about $6,000 more in each case. The only transmission available on any XK is a 6-speed automatic with steering wheel mounted paddles.
