What's better than an all-new, supercharged V-8 engine that makes 90 hp and 48 lb-ft of torque more than its predecessor while improving the Jaguar XKR's 0-to-60-mph time from a claimed 4.9 to 4.6 seconds? An all-new, supercharged V-8 that does all that without a concomitant increase in fuel consumption, that's what.
For 2010, Jag's two-door not only gets the AJ-V8 that increases power, its fuel economy is expected to remain at 23 mpg on the freeway, leading Jaguar engineers to boast that "we believe we have the most efficient 500-hp car in the world," one that will not be subject to the gas-guzzler tax. After a spirited day of driving both the XKR coupe and convertible under sunny Spanish skies, we'd add "one of the most fun and attractive 500-hp cars" to the XKR's list of superlatives. The throttle blipping as you shuttle among the lower gears of the paddleshift transmission is almost Ferrari-like in its metallic sharpness, an indicator that this car is finally playing in the big leagues. With maximum torque from 2500 to 5500 rpm, this cat is always ready to catapult you to the horizon. The same new electronic limited-slip rear diff that's in the XFR sedan is standard, and all XKs now have the twist-knob JaguarDrive gear selector from the XF.
The XKR coupe rises in price from $88,475 to $96,000, while the ragtop leaps from $94,475 to $102,000. Hey, those are only about 8 percent increases for 21 percent more power and 12 percent more torque. The numbers are in your favor.

2010 Jaguar XK
The Jaguar XK is one of the oldest designs that are currently in the Jaguar line up. With 4 year old styling this British style roadster offers some of the refined internal styling that you would expect from a high end car manufacturer like Jaguar. The XK offers a styling that cannot be missed and this generation offers a strong style that has been adored for years now.

The 2010 Jaguar XK comes with some new improvements that mostly offer some new power upgrades. The new more powerful V-8 offers that is right on time with the competing roadsters in its class. There are also some slight updates on interior styling that bring an even higher level of class this already hot Jag. The highest trim level of this Jaguar is found in the XKR which adds even more performance parts that give this little roadster even more performance and better handling at high speeds. The XK does offer a touch screen in dash system that allows the driver to control the navigation system among other things, overall the XK is one hot roadster.

Rumors of Jaguar's Porsche 911-fighter -- codenamed the XE -- have been in the ether for years, but it seems as if they're quickly becoming reality. Carl-Peter Forster, CEO of Tata Motors, recently confirmed the XE's development in an interview with Automobilwoche, and also gave a little preview of the Jag and Land Rover models to come.

The Jaguar XKR is one awesome feline, and it's soon to become even hotter. The upcoming 75th Anniversary edition confirms our rumors that Jaguar would indeed produce a hopped-up XKR.

Remember Jaguar's mean XKR GT2 coupe? Although the car was built to compete in the American Le Mans Series, the automaker revealed the car is headed for the real thing -- the 2010 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Having just spent the week on vacation, I arrived at Detroit Metro airport to find the new 2010 Jaguar XKR Coupe waiting for me. How lucky we are. The car looks amazing from all angles and is attractive to a wide range of people. I got two compliments on the car before I even got out of the parking lot. The rear hatch area is surprisingly spacious, easily accommodating three pieces of luggage: one large bag and two carry-on pieces. Once inside the car, you can see the new "JaguarDrive Selector" that was adopted from the XF for 2010. As you would expect from Jaguar, the front seats are very comfortable and offer electric bolster adjustments that can be operated by a button on the interior door panel. Although rear seats exist, they are much too small for an adult to fit comfortably.

With its long nose and shapely, swept-back body, the XK is still a stunning design after several years with only minor updates. It looks even better after the "R" beauticians primp and bejewel the coupe by pumping up the wheel size, carving intakes in the hood and front bumper, and apply a significant but tasteful helping of chrome. It may be a stunner, but the best place to experience this car is from the inside, preferably from the driver's seat where the 510-hp, supercharged V-8 moves the XKR with authority. And the 461 lb-ft of torque is available early so this Jag leaps from stoplights, although because the throttle is not easy to modulate at low speeds, it often does so even when you're trying to go easy.

With the XKR, Jaguar has taken what was already a pretty impressive car and turned it up a notch both in luxury and performance. It's noticeable almost from the moment you sit down in the car as you reach for the seat adjustment controls and find that they are no longer hard plastic but are now finished in an attractive brushed metallic. Fine, french-stitched leather and the pop-up gear selector dial also add to the feeling of opulence. Unfortunately, the familiar Jaguar touch-screen interface, which is actually fairly intuitive to use, still has a slow reaction time and sometimes necessitates navigating to several submenus to perform certain operations. Of course, the XKR is really about the engine. The previous model didn't exactly seem underpowered at 420 hp, but it now has 510 horses raring to go at the merest touch of the accelerator pedal. Power delivery is almost instantaneous and is delivered smoothly through the six-speed automatic. And, it still manages to get 22 mpg on the freeway.
