The XK coupe and convertible blend traditional luxury with surprising athleticism. Power from the base V8 is abundant, while the supercharged V8 in the XKR-S produces effortless thrust with a bellowing exhaust note to match. The all-aluminum chassis is free of body-flex, even in the convertible. Handling is quite nimble, especially considering the comfortable and gracious ride. The rear seats are best for packages. Although most competitors have a folding hard top, the XK's fabric top provides good noise insulation but creates large blind spots when raised. The slow-reacting touch screen is easily washed out by sunlight glare.
