Watch a Russian hipster get his mind blown in a Jaaaaaag

A Jaguar XKR's a mean thing in the right hands, as this Russian hipster kid finds out in this horrifying (for him) test drive. You almost have to watch this video twice; once to see the kid in the ironic CCCP shirt freaking out/almost barfing; once to see just how calm the driver is. » 6/09/11 1:00pm 6/09/11 1:00pm

Jaguar XKR: Doesn't Matte Gray Make Everything Look Better?

The Jaguar XKR still looks pretty good, but holy crap does it look even better in matte gray paint with black wheels. This one was parked outside last night's Jay-Z/XJR event, outclassing the boxy Jag sedan inside. » 12/03/09 3:00pm 12/03/09 3:00pm

2010 Jaguar XKR Convertible

When we reviewed the 2008 XKR we took issue with its handling, interior and gearbox. The 2010 Jaguar XKR Convertible adds little more than a new, 510 HP engine, but that's our kind of a band-aid. » 11/18/09 3:30pm 11/18/09 3:30pm

Jaguar XKR-S Deemed Too Slow For American Tastes

The Jaguar XKR is undeniably a sexy beast of a car. That being said, adding an "S" to the end of the name, tweaking the suspension and tires, and futzing with the nose styling apparently doesn't add up to a car fast enough to justify US sales. Jag USA has decided the S model, having the same 175 MPH top speed and same… » 8/14/08 2:00pm 8/14/08 2:00pm

Jaguar XKR-R Spotted Roaming The Streets?

The folks over at Autogespot happened upon a not-so-regular Jaguar XK with factory plates running around town and they're not sure what it is. Could this be the mysterious Jaguar XKR-R that apparently showed up at the 'Ring a year ago and then disappeared?

2009 Jaguar XK Spotted, Looks Surprised

We've sort of been torn with regards to the look of the latest generation Jaguar XK. On the one hand, those big eyes make it look like a surprised child ("We got bought by Tata, WHAT?).

2008 Jaguar XKR, Part Two

The 2008 Jaguar XKR is a fast car. With the added 'R,' the hood louvers inscribed with "Supercharged" and the aggressive body work, however, that probably goes without saying. Those visual cues hint at the added performance. Power is up from 300bhp in the non-R version to 420. It makes 413lb/ft of torque. Why, then,… » 2/12/08 12:00pm 2/12/08 12:00pm

2008 Jaguar XKR, Part One

The 2008 Jaguar XKR is good at pushing buttons. I had looked forward to driving it, having grown progressively bored with a succession of SUVs, economy rides and lackluster sports cars during these past few months. I was in sore need of something lithe and European. On that, the XKR delivered.
