Jaguar to supercharge XKR for 2008
Jaguar dealers in North America will begin selling the redesigned 2007 Jaguar XK coupe and convertible this spring, but the company already is working on high-performance R-type variants of each model.
The next-generation XKR coupe and convertible will be equipped with a supercharged 4.2-liter V-8 delivering around 400 horsepower.
It will be aimed at such European luxury performance models as the BMW M6 and the Mercedes-Benz SL55 AMG. The R-type models typically have larger air intakes, unique grilles, louvered hoods and flared wheel arches.
The new XKR coupe and convertible are expected to make their official debut this fall at the Paris Auto Show and hit U.S. showrooms next spring as an '08 model.
My first car was a 67 Mustang Coupe, 2nd one was a 67 Cougar XR-7, 3rd one was a 66 Mustang Coupe. Why did I get rid of these cars for ? I know why, because I'm stupid, stupid, stupid.
My next Ford.....
