2012 jaguar xk-series Reviews and News

2012 Jaguar XK
2012 Jaguar XK
Amid dramatic changes in the Jaguar lineup, the traditional-looking XK offers the clearest link to the brand's past. Its sonorous 5.0-liter V-8 engine, available with power outputs ranging from 385 to a mind-blowing 550 hp, responds instantly to the tap of the gas pedal, with much of the credit going to the six-speed automatic transmission, which reacts almost as if it could read the driver's mind. Although the XK's styling harks back to the 1998 XK8, the car has benefited from several recent updates. Last year it received a line of direct-injection V-8 engines. At that time the interior was restyled to more closely match the newer XF and XJ, replacing the controversial J-gate shifter with the new, also controversial, rotary shifter. The front and rear fascias, updated last year, evolve further this year with a more aggressive lower grille and slimmer headlights that resemble Jaguar's recent sports car concepts. The new-for-2012 XJR-S is the most powerful Jaguar you can buy, and it handily outguns the likes of the Porsche 911 Turbo S. But the XK, regardless of trim, is not as sharp as the best sports cars and, in convertible form, doesn't always feel rigid enough. Like the sporting Jags of old, though, the XK expertly blends brutal performance with a helping of refinement. Pretty soon it will lose its monopoly on Jaguar sports car enthusiasts. A less expensive two-door based on the 2011 Frankfurt motor show's C-X16 will arrive sometime in 2013, and a production version of the wild C-X75 -- sans turbine power -- is on the way.
2012 Jagaur XKR S Convertible Front Left View
The color scheme on this XKR S is spot-on: British racing green with a black convertible top and shiny black wheels over saddle brown leather seats with charcoal trim. It's modern yet traditional -- an aesthetic that Jaguar manages to create in every one of its vehicles. And as good as it looks, it sounds even better. The engine produces pure music and the exhaust bark is totally addictive. After I heard it the first time pulling away from a stop, I began timing the lights to experience it as many times as possible. Stop, accelerate, bark, repeat.
1967 Bertone Jaguar Pirana Front Three Quarters View
According to its organizers, the 2012 Concorso Italiano is a celebration of “vehicles of  Italian origin.” So how is it a 1967 Jaguar E-Type – one of England’s most renowned sports cars -- may be one of the show’s star attractions? Because this isn’t just any run-of-the-mill E-Type. It’s the 1967 Bertone Pirana [sic] concept. Unless you’re a devout student of Bertone history, played with the Politoys replica as a child, or gave up building the Fujimi model kit in a fit of frustration, chances are you may never have heard of the Pirana. In 1967, John Anstey – publisher of the Telegraph newsmagazine -- commissioned Bertone to craft a concept car to display at the Earls Court Motor Show. Anstey’s demands included the finished product be built from parts already in production, boast modern safety and comfort features, and be a fully-operable car. Bertone procured a chassis from a 4.2 litre E-Type, and set to work reworking every exterior surface. The E-Type’s long, rounded body was eschewed in favor of a long, flat, rectangular body with crisp forms. Said to be the work of Marcello Gandini, it bore some resemblance to Bertone’s wild Lamborghini Marzal concept shown earlier that year in Geneva, but it bore an even closer resemblance to a production car that would debut in 1968: the Lamborghini Espada. The history of the car following its London show debut is a bit murky, though the car randomly surfaced on eBay in 2010, looking a bit tatty and wearing an unusual shade of green. Since then, the car has been completely restored to its original state, and its first public post-restoration showing is this year’s Concorso. A fitting venue, considering the show is paying tribute to Bertone’s 100th anniversary this year. “We’re very excited to have the Pirana as part of our showcase this year,” said Tom McDowell, president of the Concorso Italiano, in a prepared release. “It serves as a prime example of Bertone’s design craftsmanship and is an excellent addition to our 100th anniversary collection. The company was responsible for producing some of the most exciting, beautiful, and historically important automobiles.” Want to see it for yourself? Make plans to hit up the Concoros Italiano on August 17, in Monterey, California. For more information, visit www.concorso.com.

Jaguar F Type Prototype Front Three Quarter On Track 21
Once the Jaguar F-Type roadster arrives sometime next year, a coupe will follow 12 to 18 months later, UK-based Auto Express reports. Jaguar hints that it will be more of a driver’s car than a GT like the larger XK on which it’s based.

Jaguar XK Artisan SE Coupe Profile
The Jaguar XK will receive a new limited-edition upgrade treatment called the XK Artisan Special Edition. The unique collection of upgrades includes bespoke interior and exterior changes to make the Jaguar XK and XKR coupe and convertible even more attractive and luxurious. The updates begin outside, where Jaguar will allow the XK to be painted in three Artisan-exclusive colors: Celestial Black, Polaris White, or Rhodium Silver. The XK also wears unique, polished, Orono-style 20-inch wheels. Inside, textured "scraffito-style" leather adorns the front seats, dashboard, and door panels, while the headliner is covered with Poltrona Frau high-end Italian leather. Buyers can opt for either Shadow Walnut or Dark Figured Aluminum interior trims. Power bucket seats, a heated steering wheel, stainless-steel pedals, unique door-sill plates, and a 525-watt Bowers & Wilkins sound system are all standard. Convertible models can be equipped with fabric tops in black, blue, gray, or brown. The Jaguar XK Artisan SE commands a price premium of about £12,000 over regular models in the U.K., or about $19,000. Unfortunately for leaping-cat fans on our shores, the Jaguar XK Artisan will not be sold in the U.S. market. Source: Jaguar
