All new Jaguar XK

1972 Jaguar E-Type S3

Jaguar XKR-R Concept

Jaguar XK

Jaguar unveiled an all-new 2007 car, called simply the "XK", at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 2005. It uses the new XJ's aluminium chassis. Initially, it will be powered by a 300 hp (225 kW) version of the 4.2 L AJ-V8. A supercharged version with 400 hp (300 kW) will be offered as well as a convertible version.

The new XK will closely resemble the ALC Coupe concept which was first seen at the Geneva Motor Show. The designer, Ian Callum, was also responsible for Aston Martin's DB9 and V8 Vantage coupes, which explains the similarities in design among the three cars. Many have criticized the new XK's resemblance to the Aston Martins and even the lowly Ford Taurus.

The XK convertible will be introduced for 2007 at the 2006 North American International Auto Show. It weighs 3759 lb (1705 kg) and features a conventional cloth top that will open or close in 18 seconds.
