This svelte feline drives just like a Jaguar should and is very planted and extremely refined giving that 'power cloud' feeling. It also has the all too important Jaguar soul which is absent from many expensive cars and which is not comprehended by makers of most other cars.  XK owners understand this distinction and feel slightly sorry for drivers of other cars who may not realise that there are some things which money cannot buy. For these reasons Jaguar drivers may appear to be in a state of suspended smugness and if they sometimes wear a silly grin you will have to excuse them.

I'm still getting to know the car but have made some observations below.


  1. Cruise control
  2. Power washers on the headlamps
  3. Power fold mirrors
  4. Heated seats
  5. Memory seats and steering wheel
  6. 18" wheels
  7. Front grill
  8. Phone kit
  9. Harman Kardon sound system
