2013 Jaguar XK Road Test & Review: Introduction
Easily one of the most beautiful cars on the road, the Jaguar XK is both an icon and a paragon. Iconic in that it represents a line of Jaguar grand touring cars tracing their lineage all the way back to the highly coveted Jaguar E-Type sports cars.
At the same time, the Jaguar XK is a paragon because it is the unalloyed embodiment of everything a grand touring automobile should be. The Jaguar is graced with exceptional good looks, whole it is also wholly uncompromised its comfort and luxury. Further, the XK is wholly unrestrained in its performance potential.
In the words of Sir William Lyons, one of the founders of the company, this Jaguar truly is about space, grace and pace. All of these factors combine to make the Jaguar XK one of the most desirable cars available.
And ironically, for what it is—relatively speaking—it’s also one of the most affordable.
