Jaguar first unveiled the XK (or XK8) and XKR models in 1996 as successors for the old XJS models. Ten successful years after that, the second generation was presented at the 2005 Frankfurt Motor Show, with both versions getting facelifts a few years later in 2009. Then and now, the XK and the XKR are two of the most successful Jaguars on the market.

The XKR really deserves the logo of the wild cat. With a 510 HP V8 engine under the hood, it can sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.6 seconds. You might say that the XKR is slower than its competitors, but let’s not forget that the XKR is about $20K less than the cheapest competitor and $30K less than the Porsche Turbo.

The model is entering the 2011 model year with the addition of two special editions: the XKR175 Limited Edition, the "XKR Speed Pack," and "XKR Speed and Black Pack".
