Slide1: Introducing the breathtaking XK and XKR (available in early 2007), Jaguar´s latest, most muscled athletes. Shouldered and powerful as always, but sleeker now with aluminum bodyshell drawn taut across the chassis, these dramatic sports machines are purposefully trimmed and tuned for heart-pounding performance. Exhaust song, power, control and comfort await notice with bold assurance. Inside or out, coupe or convertible, there´s not an ounce of excess. But there is anticipation. ..because on the road, the XK commands. Introduction Slide2: In coupe or roadster attire, the XKs are stunning. And more than just pretty faces, because lurking under the hood is Jaguar´s latest 4.2-liter, 32-valve, 4-cam aluminum AJ-V8, with cam phasing to stoke response at all speeds. In the XKR, an Eaton supercharger is added, ramping horsepower to 420 and propelling the Coupe from 0-60 in 4.9 seconds. The engine defines power, just as the silky 6-speed ZF sequential-shift transmission— it allows gear changes via steering wheel-mounted paddles—characterize s control. Slide3: Safety in the XK may be less apparent than the car´s performance, but it is there, readily helping the driver. Performance- rated 4-wheel ventilated anti-lock disc brakes—with oversized discs in the XKR—are sized to match engine power. In demanding conditions, TracDSC electronically uses the anti-lock braking and traction control systems to improve directional stability when cornering. Individual tire pressure is continuously monitored. Adaptive Restraint Technology deploy front airbags according to occupant position, weight, and crash severity, while side airbags help protect front occupants in certain side collisions. And for the convertible, sensors deploy high-strength aluminum hoops in case of rollover, creating a shield zone to help protect passengers.2 Slide4: Nimble and light, the XK accelerates, stops and handles effortlessly. Its aluminum alloy bodyshell is rivet-bonded, a monocoque design that increases stiffness, reduces weight, improves road performance and delivers class-leading highway fuel economy.1 And its enhanced Computer Active Technology Suspension (eCATS) reads road conditions and automatically adjusts damping for optimum balance of ride and control. Slide5: Flowing lines, echoed lineage, distinctive design touches, all sculpted in lightweight aluminum—an amalgam of power, dramatic styling, relevant technology and pure luxury. With the XK and XKR, everything is where it should be and feels exactly as it should feel. For drivers with a frank urge to fly, these are the perfect cars. Slide10: Inside the XK lies an elegant, truly personal domain: contemporary, flawlessly trimmed, and equipped as the driver demands. Available soft-grain leather graces the seats, doors and console and feels as finished as it looks.
Handcrafted Poplar and Burl Walnut accents bespeak meticulous craftsmanship, and Aluminum trim imparts a sporting feel to the cockpit.
Controls and electronics are proficient and precise. And all of this artistry is assured by a competitive Jaguar warranty and maintenance plan. Slide11: XK styling, inside and out, makes an authoritative statement. But you don´t have to stop there; you can refine the cachet of the car by adding lavish preferences. With the Luxury Package, special 16-way power seats, softgrain leather, wood and leather steering wheel and shift lever, adjustable bolsters and 19-in. Carelia wheels, for instance, or the Aluminum Luxury Package with 20-in. Senta alloy wheels.3 Upgrades of consequence. Slide12: You may have noticed: XK and XKR are committed to their drivers. An intuitive, 7-in. color touch screen employs Macromedia® Flash to deliver single-point control of audio, navigation, climate, telephone, and vehicle settings in a crisp, vibrant graphic display. And from the Jaguar Smart Key System with keyless entry and keyless start, to bi-Xenon headlamps, to Adaptive Front Lighting that rotates headlamps to help illuminate around corners, to rain-sensing wipers, to Adaptive Cruise Control radar that monitors slowing traffic ahead and applies braking to maintain distance, to reverse park control, the XK´s dedication to you is relentless.3 Slide13: In this car, even the atmosphere merits attention. A dual-zone climate control with humidity sensor keeps your environment temperate. And an available 525-watt, 8-speaker Alpine® premium sound system—the most powerful in its class—features Dolby Pro-Logic II surround and an in-dash 6-disc CD player and fills the cabin with music. If you don´t like station seeking on long journeys, it even includes SIRIUS® Satellite Radio.4
