"Oh that I have lived to own this car"5.0 starson by sheepmesa
Pros: Stunningly beautiful inside and out, awesome roadability, very comfortable
Cons: There are not cons--the most perfect car I have ever owned or driven
Summary: The XK coupe is the most beautiful, attention-getting car on the road. It is sleek, simple, clean and subtle. The XK makes a BMW, Mercedes, Lexus, Porsche and just about every other car look boring and unimaginative. It is refreshing that in an era in which nearly all cars look alike, with box-like rear ends, exaggerated curves and sharp edges, and in which designers are resorting to tacky retro features to try and jazz up the look, that Jaguar and its design chief, Ian Callum, have come up with a car that mesmerizes with its simplicity. On the performance side, the XK is superb in every respect. It is very quick, holds the road magnificently, especially on turns, has an incredibly fast transmission, has well balanced steering (not too tight or sensitive) and delivers a smooth ride. Inside, the car is comfortable and quiet. The appointments are luxurious, but not ostentatious. The instrument panel and controls are remarkably simple to use. Unlike most cars these days that have many dials and a myriad of buttons, the XK has only two dials and relatively few (but enough) buttons. This gives the car an interior look nearly as sleek as its exterior appearance. The touch screen is like an Apple computer operating system. Totally intuitive. You don't have to read the manual to figure out how to use the various features and controls. The navigation sytem is the finest I have seen. Overall, this is an awesome vehicle.
