Aficionados of car sports always crave for more power; so is the case with sports car making companies. Adding to this race for power is the 2007 Jaguar XKR.

The new Jaguar XKR derives all its excellence from its predecessor, Jaguar XK luxury car, and at the same time presents a 'more powerful' identity with its innovative engine technology, adding new dimensions to the power definitions of the sports GT cars showing on the roads. The 'beautiful and powerful' XKR has got a lot of features to be proud of.

The body of Jaguar XKR is made of the aluminum monocoque, the latest development in the automobile technology. The supercharged 420 bhp, V8 engine with its six-speed automatic transmission capability is one among the many features that make this young Jaguar sporty on its wheels.

Of course, this fast car can enhance your sporting thrills. The perfect sport-compliant fitting such as the front bumper, aluminum grilles and the bonnet louvers, 19/20-inch wheel design and the quad-exhaust system, etc., make its performance worthy of competition.

You can have a good control too! No need to worry about the road conditions or the demanding speed. XKR is capable of delivering instant acceleration the moment you require it. You may use it for a grand tour or as a sports car. The perfect suspension set-up and the steering control make this change of roles possible for the little Jaguar with ease.

The classic design of Jaguar has always been a passion to the car lovers. Jaguar XK has proved it. Now with contemporary additions to the existing XK style, the new Jaguar XKR is the talk among the funky car aesthetes.

Come to the interior of the luxury car XKR. You will be surprised to see the highly sophisticated cabin that contains the world-class instrument panel and the dashboard. The seats are designed to suit the purpose of the car. They are provided with extra support from the sides for the driver and the front-seat passenger. The 'weave' design of the interior veneer is another noticeable feature of the Jaguar XKR.

For the company, Jaguar XKR is more than a sports GT. With 120bhp (SAE) more power achieved than the earlier 4.2L-XK engines, the XKR has rewritten the technical history of the existing cars. Also the XKR offers 36% more torque than the XK. As a result, the power-to-weight ratio has been increased by 12% and torque-to-weight ratio by 7.7%. All this upgrading is done at the cost of a mere weight increase, about 154lb (70kg).

The lightweight eight-cylinder engine powered with Eaton supercharger is responsible for the better performance. The twin air inlets and a variable inlet camshaft timing system are the main features of the XKR engine that contributes to greater engine efficiency in different driving conditions.

No doubt that the number of fans for the Jaguar fleet is going to be multiplied with the addition of another classic model, Jaguar XKR.
