Tag Links: Jaguar, XKR


The XKR is the most performance-oriented model in Jaguar’s current lineup, so it’s fitting that the storied English automaker upped the ante for 2010 by fitting a 510-hp, supercharged 5.0-liter V-8 in place of the old model’s 420-hp, 4.2-liter supercharged unit. (The base XK gets a 385-hp, 5.0-liter naturally aspirated V-8 instead of the previous car’s 300-hp, 4.2-liter V-8.)

But that wasn’t the only change for 2010. The XKR gets revised exterior styling, with a more aggressive front bumper, LED rear lights, and a different lower rear spoiler. Chrome now adorns the window surrounds, while the side vents are body color. When equipped with the optional 20-inch wheels, the XKR is a real beauty that looks almost as elegant as the Aston Martin DB9.
