Supercar performance with luxury car price by Sideways Mike XKR on 11/24/2010. Trim: 2008 Jaguar XKR Coupe, Owned 1 year.

Pros: Drives like a missile or a comfortable daily cruiser. Beautiful engine sound to get the blood pumping, untouchable on the highway but quiet and super comfy in traffic.
Cons: Front seats recline too far back and scratch the rear side interior. Back seat is too small for a baby seat or anyone older than 12. Otherwise good for kids 3-12 or as a storage space for bags.
Overall review: Jaguar has created a true Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. I've owned a number of BMWs with auto transmission and when you switch to sport mode in the BMW there's some boost, in the XKR it becomes totally explosive!!! However the Jag's auto gearbox has almost equal power control to a manual, trully incedible. Also it handles bumps unbeleivably smoothly despite 20 inch rims and sporty suspension. Plus you can hang the back end out easier than any other high performance rear wheel drive car in any class. A great unexpected car for drifting. (See video on you tube: Sideways Mike XKR)
