The Jaguar sports car experience moves on to new levels with the introduction of a new generation of the XK and XKR coupe and convertible – cars that utilize advanced technologies at a higher level and with greater performance than ever before.
There are three models in the new XK range: the XK, the highly equipped XK Portfolio and the supercharged XKR, all available in coupe or convertible form. Each is seductive, powerful and elegant; introducing revised exterior and interior styling that underlines Jaguar’s contemporary thinking on design.
With the introduction of all-new 5.0-litre direct-injection V8 engines, the XK comes with improved power, performance, efficiency and less CO2 emissions. Coupled with improved acceleration from standstill and stunning in-gear acceleration times; all models are electronically limited to a maximum speed of 250kph, but the 0-100kph sprint for naturally aspirated coupe models is now 5.2 seconds (previously 5.9 seconds), while for the supercharged XKR coupe, 0-100kph is 4.6 seconds (previously 4.9 seconds).
The new AJ-V8 Gen III engines are the most advanced and efficient Jaguar has ever produced. They deliver significantly more power and torque than the previous generation of engines: 510PS and 625Nm in the new supercharged XKR and 385PS and 515Nm in the XK models.
Jaguar’s acclaimed electronically controlled, six-speed ZF 6HP28 transmission offers an unparalleled combination of driver control matched to virtually undetectable gearshifts. With control either from steering wheel-mounted paddles or full automatic mode via the JaguarDrive Selector™, which is new for the 2010 Model Year XK, the transmission is now paired with an advanced electronic differential on the XKR model. This enables the supercharged car to accelerate even faster, handle even more precisely and set new standards of dynamic control.
Ra’ed S. Shaban, Jaguar Brand Manager, said:
“With dramatic new looks and advanced technologies, the XK has all the performance, power and elegance that you expect in the ultimate sporting car and moves the Jaguar sports car experience on to a whole new level.”
Carefully revised exteriors matches the seductive, elegant lines that define Jaguar’s new design direction with contemporary, sporting luxury and exceptional quality of craftsmanship reflecting the enhanced interiors.
Built on 60 years of legendary performance to deliver the best of everything Jaguar, the XK was the beginning of Jaguar’s new design direction. It was followed by the XF and the recently unveiled all-new XJ. The 2010 XK is available throughout the Middle East and North Africa.
The Jaguar 2010 XK is currently available for sale at the Mahmoudia Motors showroom located in Wadi Saqra.
