Joe Wiesenfelder’s extremely thorough – and unusually ecstatic – review of the all-new 2007 Jaguar XK coupe and convertible is a terrific read. Often around the office writers will argue over what they thought of each car, but on this Joe and I see eye to eye: the XK is a winner.
And Joe’s not wrong to point out the looks as one of the important “win” factors. When compared to the awkward wedge shape of the BMW 650i, the XK is all curves. From any angle besides head-on, the XK is tough to compete with, unless you’re in the rarified air of $100,000-plus vehicles.
