Unfortunately, the Ferrari -like hue wasn't readily available, so we settled for Radiance, a softer, darker-metallic red, combined with caramel leather. This XK carries over the engines from the previous model, but everything else is bespoke, including the lightweight aluminum body structure that endowed both our testers with remarkably catlike grace and agility on the road.

    Jaguar XK Review, Ratings, Specs, Prices, and Photos - The Car Connection

    Earlier this year, Jaguar introduced its all-new XK coupe and convertible. With a completely new chassis, including a lighter, stiffer, all-aluminum body, beautifully designed inside and out, with a uniquely British style, the new XK is a revelation among grand touring coupes. Intake valve timing is variable for the first time on the XKR. The ZF automatic is perhaps the fastest-shifting traditional automatic in any vehicle, with the capability of shifting in less than 0.

    The transmission essentially has three modes. Burl walnut or poplar woods are available as no-cost alternatives. The interface is extremely easy to navigate through, with a home button that instantly brings you back to the main menu if you want to access a feature quickly. Discs have 26 percent more braking surface, while cooling efficiency has been improved by 37 percent. The heftier brakes can haul the XKR down from 60 to zero in half the time it takes to accelerate back to The spring rate is also significantly stiffer by 38 percent in front and 26 percent in back , the rollbar is a millimeter thicker, and the dampers are 25 percent firmer all around.

    To match, the calibration for the CATS Computer Active Technology Suspension system — that switches the dampers between soft and firm — has been tweaked for better reflexes. It does a great job of keeping the ride smooth and supple yet firming up when the situation demands it.

    Unlike the former XKs, the stability control system is truly tuned for performance driving, allowing the tail to get just a slight bit out of line at low speeds before nudging it firmly back in place with the brakes.

    Overall, the chassis is just so capable, and the electronics so good at keeping everything in check that the XKR feels like it could handle even more power.

    We clocked time in both a coupe and convertible, and the coupe, and found both of them very solid, stable, and quiet at triple-digit speeds. Even the convertible, with its triple-layer soft top up, was quiet enough inside for a normal conversation at about 90 mph, and the wind buffeting was nice enough with the top down to not require shouting at the same speed.

    Whether to choose the coupe or the convertible may be your most daunting choice. The former XKR was split toward the convertible by 88 percent, though the coupe is expected to be considerably more popular this time. The new XK coupe has already been selling at a rate of 30 percent. Our only minor gripes involved some subtle details inside the beautifully trimmed cabin. The seats, we thought, were comfortable, but cushions were short and they could have used much more lateral support to handle the formidable grip from the sticky Dunlop tires.

    Major options include a Luxury Sports interior package, including softer-grain leather for the seats and door and dash trim. It rivals the former three for comfort, and it feels considerably more sprightly and athletic. Jaguar says that there are already about orders for the new XKR — in addition to XK orders to date and total vehicles delivered — so the new XK is already looking far more popular than the vehicle it replaces.

    And, perhaps, more likely to bring Jaguar back into the black.
