Jaguar North America chose the upmarket automotive aura surrounding Pebble Beach this weekend to announce the U.S. pricing for its new supercharged 2007 XKR Coupe and Convertible.

Pricing for the Coupe will start at $86,500, while the Convertible version starts at $92,500.

In Thursday's announcement, the 420 hp XKR models were described as, "sensational cars to drive that define the road...the 2007 XKR provides those who have an affinity for power and luxury, the combination of exhilaration and refinement."

Standard XKR features include:
  • enhanced ride and handling via uprated springs and dampers, plus a recalibrated active technology suspension system
  • six-speed automatic with paddle shifters ("shifts in milliseconds")
  • the aforementioned supercharged V8, good for 0-60 in 4.9 seconds
  • an Active Exhaust System - quiet at cruise, but pleasingly loud under hard acceleration
  • unique styling features
  • unique aluminum "weave" design interior trim (more traditional Poplar or Walnut veneer trim is a no-cost option)
  • performance brakes
  • 'R' sports seats
  • 19-inch wheels
  • adaptive front lighting

XKR options include a Luxury Package at $2,100 (upgraded leather, 16-way power seats, leather-trimmed instrument panel), a Premium Sound Package at $1,875 (Alpine 525-watt, 8-speaker system with SIRIUS satellite radio), and a radar-based Adaptive Cruise Control system at $2,200.

      It looks like it's going to be a good seller. My local Jag dealer told me that while sales of the new XK are very strong and meeting expectations, several buyers have held off until the XKR is available.

      By the way, eliminating the crossbar in the grille does a lot to get rid of that "Taurus" look.

      yes wait and get a M3 they will be loadz better!

      Why would anyone spend 100,000+ on an SL550 when you could have a XKR. Good move by Jaguar to price it 10K less than the base SL. This car will do very well and I may be crazy but it might even look better than the SL which has become and little bland as it ages.

      Hey DJ, go google D-type, E-type, and XJ-13. That grille was "Jaguar" long before it was "Taurus". Someday, the Taurus will be forgotten, Those Iconic Jags never will.

      It still looks like a jelly bean shaped Taurus.

      Ahhhhh, so nice to see how the other people live.........me?....I drive a Chevy.

      Who in their right mind spends 90k + on a car??? Buy a house or something, sheesh.

      The new XKR also has a number of other suspension and performance goodies included that would be close to a $12,000 upgrade from the base vehicle. From the looks of it, the 2007 XKR price increase over the 2006 model is definitely worth it.

      Hung2, XK's have been on sale for months, but the supercharged XKR isn't at your local dealer yet.

      Is it just me or does these 2 coupes seem way overpriced ?? how about 68k for the coupe and 72k for the convertible, that seems more like it....
