The Dollar Sign of the Cat: Jaguar Announces XKR Pricing

Notwithstanding Jaguar's corporate fate, which became cloudy this week amid reports of Ford advisors recommending a sell (with Land Rover) — and others recommending a hold — Jaguar announced MSRPs and options for the 2007 XKR Coupe and Convertible will come in under the $100,000 mark. On location of this year's Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance (Davey, represent!) the company revealed the coupe will start at $86,500, and the 2007 XKR Convertible at $92,500. Still, add a few options, and your accountant will be singing soprano in seconds flat; check out the list after the jump.
