Also, the silver side gills in front of the doors will be painted in body colour and the aluminium brake ducts at the front bumper won't come as standard - but maybe this feature comes back on the supercharged XK-R.

Its power is expected to be up to 500bhp whilst drivers of the more ordinary versions have to be contended with roughly 150 bhp less. Those who opt for the convertible version won't get more power for more money, but a classic fabric roof. Tradition matters, despite all modern details.

Driving a Jaguar is certain to remain an expensive pleasure in the case of the big 2-door model. At least 10% over the current prices has to be transferred to Coventry to call a new XK ones own. It truly is no shame that the new one is about 150kg lighter thanks to an all-aluminium body which justifies the extra charge at the price tags


and explains the supposed acceleration of round 6sec to 100kmh for the line's entry model.

The aluminium's use is also provided for the next S-type since it will share platform with the luxury Jaguars XJ and XK. To reduce expenses, some body panels could be made of steel but the frame structure will definitely be of that material.

Coventry hopes to save money that way, despite of the costly produced body work - as using one platform enables using more common parts. In terms of conceptions, the Brits consider to risk more in the future.
