Which used Jaguar XK coupe should I buy?
From launch, there were two models available: the 4.2-litre V8 with 300bhp and the supercharged 4.2-litre R model with 420bhp. Both have an automatic gearbox - but that's no bad thing. It's slick, has a sports mode and F1-style steering-wheel-mounted paddles.
The R is a much more aggressive-looking car, with racing details, a sports body kit, different cabin trim options along and a firmer suspension. The standard car sounds great, but the R modifies the V8's growl to a roar under hard acceleration.
