Expert Reviews: 2008 Jaguar XKR
Expert Rating: 4.5 stars

"It is completely docile, quiet and serene while cruising on the freeway or even running errands through city streets. But a slight touch on the loud pedal generates a muted but throaty rush..."

Review 1 of 3

Price Paid:  $0.00

Year / Model Reviewed:
2010 XKR Coupe

Strengths:
Fit, Finish & Handling; Exhaust note; Sound System

Weaknesses:
No voice activation or backup camera; rear end breaks loose too easily, it might be the Dunlops; the car is too heavy

Summary:
With 510hp and 461ft/lbs of torque at 2500rpm it is very easy to accidentally spin the wheels which kicks the tail loose (with the DSC off). The difference between regular and sport mode is substantial. With the DCS off be prepared to go sideways when you least expect it. Sport mode is not for going around 90 degree corners around town. In regular mode it is very tame and easy to drive. It definitely has a dual personality. It is very light feeling and quick through the mountains. If it does break loose through a wide sweeper you can hold it in a drift if you have the guts with 510hp to do so. It has a very rigid frame/body, no noticeable flex at all! The Dunlops are not the right tire, I had Continentals on my S Type R, which were much more sticky. Jaguar has an amazing ability to build cars that ride very smoothly even over speed bumps at any speed yet handle with minimal body roll and a firm stable confidence through the twisties. Oh ...the Sound in total manual mode is addictive.

Review 3 of 3

Price Paid:  $0.00

Year / Model Reviewed:
2008 XKR Coupe

Strengths:
Power, Style and Luxury

Weaknesses:
Rough rides but awesome power

Summary:
I just had my xkr coupe and its the best car I have ever owned from Merc, BMW to Porsche. I had two Jags in the past xj /xjk and both were lemons. But this car is the best car in a long time to hit the roads. Its handling is awesome and power is well managed. It’s a true luxury GT car that beats any other car in its class.
