Exclamation 2010 Jaguar XKR facelift - gets new 5.0 Supercharged V8!

http://www.netcarshow.com/jaguar/2010-xkr/

EDIT:

Guys not only does the facelift have the exterior treatment and new rotary gearshifter, it gets the new 5.0 Supercharged V8 which is also in the XF-R. That's a great improvement for a facelift model!

"In naturally aspirated form, the new AJ-V8 Gen III 5.0-litre engine delivers 385PS (SAE) and 380lb ft (515Nm) of torque - respectively 26 and 23 percent more than its 4.2-litre predecessor. The Jaguar XKR's supercharged 5.0-litre version delivers a mighty 510PS (510bhp SAE) and 461lb ft (625Nm) of torque - improvements of 23 and 12 percent respectively over the supercharged 4.2-litre engine.

On the road, while maximum speed remains under electronic control at 155mph (250kph), these power and torque gains allied to the lightweight aluminium body architecture of the XK dramatically improve acceleration times. For the naturally aspirated XK, 0-60mph is reduced to 5.2 seconds from 5.9 seconds (and 0-100kph from 6.2 to 5.5 seconds); for the supercharged Jaguar XKR, 0-60mph is reduced to 4.6 seconds from 4.9 (and 0-100kph to 4.8 seconds from 5.2)."

Didn't Jaguar get bought out by an Indian company?

I love them, but I dont like the chrome accents.

Guys, I just noticed it also has that mad Jaguar Drive Select or whatever it's called. Basically the rotary gear shifter from the XF. Here's what it used to be:

Unfortunately I think Jag's coupe/vert is a scale down Aston Martin. Ford owned both and the coupes look very similar.

I think it looks nice on the outside. Never like any Jag interior though.

I think the Aston and the Jag have the same designer.

I love the AMV8. Every part of the design makes sense and it has a perfect stance. It's a perfect size and that V8 sounds amazing.

The new XKs design was just ugly to me from the beginning. The headlights look like they were squished flat and the rear is just boring IMO.

Very interesting to see most people dont like it. I'm not a Jag man at all and I'd never buy one, the XF-R is a maybe which is the closest I've been, but I still think I wouldnt take it.

I still think for a facelift it looks better apart from the wheels (which can be easily changed to pre-facelift wheels) and the performance stats look MUCH better!
