      |2013 Jaguar XK Review|The 2013 Jaguar XK lineup features a new limited-edition model, though don't expect to see many of them. The Jaguar XKR 175 was designed celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Jaguar marque. Only 175 will be built, however, making it an exclusive model. The XKR 175 features special aerodynamic enhancements: front and rear spoilers, side sills and an air diffuser. It can go 175 mph, though we don't recommend testing this. It comes in Ultimate Black with contrasting red brake calipers that can be seen through 20-inch wheels. Inside are charcoal leather seats with cranberry stitching.The Jaguar XK and XKR got superb new engines for 2010, along with some styling revisions. For 2013, Jaguar XK is unchanged, but it gets some new options, including adaptive cruise control.The newly designed direct-injection 32-valve 5.0-liter engine, first introduced on the 2010 models, is made by Jaguar. The Jaguar engine is more compact than the previous Ford powerplant and it's very powerful. The XKR gets a blown version of the same engine. In the 385-horsepower XK, zero-to-60 acceleration time is 5.2 seconds, but in the 510-hp XKR it's 4.6 seconds, which is head-snapping fast. A new generation of Eaton supercharger, as well as a new air intake system, makes that visceral whine of the blower under hard acceleration a thing of the past (it's the price of progress), so when you floor it, you just shoot forward like a rocket, semi-silently. Watch out, because 100 mph comes in a couple of heartbeats.The XK chassis was introduced for the 2007 model year, but it's still state of the art: aluminum monocoque, bonded and riveted, very lightweight and rigid. We found the result to be a sleek ride with no harsh spots and magnificent handling, with razor-sharp turn-in for corners and Gibraltar stability at Autobahn speeds. That's useful because the XK is long-legged and really hits its stride at 90 mph.The brakes are outstanding. You can brake from 100-to-zero in mere heartbeats using the XKR's massive 15.7-inch rotors with six-piston calipers in front, and 13.8 inches with four-pots at the rear.The 6-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters is smooth and tight with rev-matching downshifting. Unlike so many, it isn't always changing gears for you. You can drive the XK aggressively and use the transmission like a manual gearbox, and it does well with crisp upshifts and throttle-blipping downshifts, especially when you turn the dial on the console to set the car to Sport mode. We are not fans of the Jaguar shift knob, however.Fuel economy is an EPA-rated 16/22 City/Highway miles per gallon for the normally aspirated XK, 15/22 mpg for the supercharged XKR, although we only averaged 14 mpg in our 2013 Jaguar XKR because we were either creeping around town on stop-and-go errands, or running wide open on empty flat two-lanes where we could let 'er rip.Inside is a classy cabin. We thought the Piano Black wood veneer looked sharp on our 2013 XKR. Instrumentation leans more toward luxury than sport, but then the XK itself leans that way, optional supercharger notwithstanding. Bucket seats are adjustable 16 ways including bolstering, so they work for large and small drivers who like to corner hard without being tossed out of the seat.|Walkaround|The Jaguar XK has been an iconic beauty, its voluptuous fenders flowing without interruption back to the 1954 Jaguar D Type racing car, the 1957 XKSS, and the 1975 XKE. So refinements to its body are almost a no-win situation. But the tweaks to the nose and tail for 2010 pulled it off. That's enough changes for a while.The XKR has some touches that improve its looks over the XK. The foglamps are located in the headlamp cluster, and there are small vertical vents at the ends of the bumper to help cool the front rotors. There are also vents on the hood of the XKR that open like a clamshell and add muscle-car flavor. The XKR also has fender cutouts behind the front wheels to extract more heat, and two twin exhaust tips that declare horsepower, complementing and balancing the hood vents.The XKR grille is just mesh and a round growling Jaguar emblem that's pretty cool but not quite like the leaping cat that used to be a hood ornament, until deemed too dangerous to pedestrians and tempting to thieves because it was just too cool.At the rear of the XK are LED taillamps, which definitely sharpen the car at night, and a lower spoiler, which you don't really notice. The XK gets first-in-class visibility to and from the rear, with twin back-up lights and taillight fog lamps to protect you in soup like in the British Isles.The standard 19-inch 10-spoke alloy wheels are gorgeous, and the other wheel options are just as lovely.Unlike some, the Mercedes E550 convertible, for example, the fabric top on the XK doesn't look awkward or weird because of its shape. It goes down or up at the touch of a button in 18 seconds, disappearing under the bodywork behind the rear seats. Jaguar calls the headliner material Suedecloth, and from the inside as well as the outside it's almost indistinguishable from a fixed roof. This Suedecloth has been made available as headliner for the XK Coupe for 2013.But you have to really really want a convertible to give up the sleek roofline of the Coupe. We love wind in our hair and all, but paying $6000 to lose the Jaguar roofline that makes the XK such a racy beauty in profile, as well as from the rear, maybe especially from the rear, seems unfair to art.|Summary|The Jaguar XK excels as the gentleman's sports car. Brilliant British 5.0-liter V8, aluminum monocoque chassis, active suspension, big brakes. Sensational and sensuous classic styling. Rocket ship acceleration from the 510-horsepower XKR. Luxury interior. We aren't fans of the JaguarDrive control with its round shifter knob, and the LCD touch-screen is hard to read in bright light and hard to understand in good light. Overall, however, Jaguar engineers have outdone themselves, and the mechanical/electronic improvements in the powertrain make this an enjoyable car.
