Inside Line
has published a comparo of the new 2007 Jaguar XK8 Coupe and the 2007 BMW 650i. The $86,125 (MSRP) Jag comes armed with a 300-horsepower, 4.2-liter V8 engine and a six-speed automatic transmission, while the BMW 650i is equipped with a similar six-speed automatic transmission, but with a 360-horsepower, 4.4-liter V8 engine. The BMW's price, meanwhile, was lower at $81,140 MSRP.

This Jaguar is the brand's latest salvo in its battle against obsolescence in the super luxury segment. Inside Line found the coupe "drop-dead gorgeous" and commented that it offered plenty of luxurious comfort. Unfortunately for the venerable cat, the 650i beat it in virtually every other category with a better backseat, more truck space, and superior fit and finish, all for a lower asking price than the Jaguar.
