Jag XK getting 3.5-liter V8

Come this October or November, European customers smitten with the idea of owning an XK will be able to get into the ride of their dreams for a bit less cash. The 3.5-liter V8 that currently resides in the XJ sedan is likely to find its way under the hood of the XK range, discounting the two-door coupe and cabrio by about €10,000.

The 3.5-liter V8 squeezes out a little over 250 HP, but with the replacement of the standard exhaust system with the unit pulled from its higher output siblings, it should be able to reach 60 in around seven seconds.

It's doubtful that this new engine option will be made available Stateside, as the powerplant swap would do little to spur sales.
