    No sports cars is more revered then the Jaguar e-type. And, enthusiasts have been rebuilding them ever since. The successors to the XKE were more grand touring than sports cars. The fabled Jaguar E-type embodied the essence of what a true Jaguar is supposed to be. It was sleek, fast, and a superior sports car for its time.

    But times have changed, and so have Jaguars. Enter the all-new Jaguar XK, a combination of heritage, with luxury and technology that is the modern Jaguar. The XK begins with new-lightweight aluminum monocoque chassis. Designed for both hard-top and soft-top formats from the get-go, it allows both coupe and convertible to weigh in at less than 3, pounds. The new design is roughly the same size as its predecessor, the XK8, measuring 3. But is clad in a more muscular, stretched, slightly angular body, that reflects its greater sport-oriented character.

    It also is among the first cars with a pedestrian friendly hood. And in the popular convertible body-style, features a flawlessly executed 3-layer power cloth top. The entire top down sequence takes less than 18 seconds. To put power to the pavement, are 18 or inch wheels and tires.

    Our coupe was fitted inch rims and run-flat tires. The muscle for this beast is the familiar AJ-V8 4. With a new car also comes a new transmission. Gone is the familiar J-gate shifter, replaced by a hockey stick gate for the ZF Sequential Shift automatic.

    It includes quick shifting manual paddles on the steering wheel too. Hit the big red starter button and the exhaust belts out a hearty growl. We tested both a coupe and convertible, and found acceleration almost a dead heat. Zero to 60 in 6. Quarter mile times were Thanks to their light, all-aluminum bodies, these cats can move. Torque is plentiful throughout the power band, and the new transmission shifts smoothly both up and down, in manual shift or full automatic modes.

    With suspension gadgetry at full on, our XK quickly surpassed the supple response of its predecessor. Bringing these big cat to a halt are large ventilated discs with 4-channel ABS. Both of our cars averaged a dead stop from 60 of just feet. Pedal resistance was also just fine. Seating in the front is luxurious with surprising leg room.

    But no person tall enough to ride a rollercoaster should even attempt to get into the rear seats. The main instruments are two, large round analog gauges, with a digital message center in between. While a seven-inch touch screen in the center stack will access audio, climate, as well as the standard satellite navigation. Lowering the convertible top greatly reduces trunk space.

    But with the top up, and in the coupe, there is enough room for two sets of golf clubs, or whatever you might need for a weekend getaway. In the past, Jaguar has sold more convertibles than coupes and expects to do the same with the new XK, but customers better be ready to play.

    The Jaguar XK represents a big step forward, and a small but welcomed step back, in the bold and performance-driven XK lineage. A combination of technology and tradition that delivers on its tall order, and puts this cat at the head of the pack.
