A redesigned XK debuted in 2005 at the Frankfurt Motor Show in Germany, styled by Jaguar’s chief designer Ian Callum. The X150′s grille was also inspired from the famous 1961 Jaguar E-Type.
The standard XK model has a limited top speed of 158 mph whilst the XKR a limited top speed of 174 mph. An even faster variant, the XKR-S model was introduced at the Geneva Motor Show in 2012.
The XKR-S gained an additional 40-horsepower over the XKR bringing the 0-60 mph time down to only 4.4 seconds and the top speed up to 300 km/h (186 mph) – making it the fastest Jaguar yet after the Jaguar XJ220. It includes a supercharged AJ-V8 Gen III R direct-injection engine rated 542 hp @ 6,000 to 6,500 rpm and 502 lbf·ft @ 2,500 to 5,500 rpm, raised top speed of 186 mph, active sports exhaust, bespoke suspension changes front and rear, 16-way adjustable memory sports seats with carbon fibre effect leather, reprogrammed Adaptive Dynamics, 20-inch Vulcan wheels and Pirelli P-Zero tyres, standard Jaguar High Performance Braking System.
A convertible version of the XKR-S was released in 2012.
Production of the XK ended in July 2014 without a replacement model.

The facelifted X150 seen here is home to subtle enhancements to bumpers and sills that display a considered execution of style and performance. This R-S is certainly a step up in aggression, with the use of carbon freely employed all around the car; Front splitter, rear diffuser and rear wing are all treated to the lightweight compound. The XK has always proved to be a popular shape with balanced proportions and elegant lines, particularly with this stunning Ultimate Black example exhibiting minimal wear and rich colour.
After a thorough detailing session the car looks splendid under both natural and studio light, with subtle aerodynamic additions offering further dynamic prowess.
The curvature of both the dash, the door cards and the double stitched leather makes for an ergonomic delight with excellent feel, fit and finish. The layered mat and carpet set present impeccably with embossed and carbon effect leather seats unmarked; offering infinite electrical adjustment and excellent support. Navigation, DAB and Bluetooth complete the generous specification.
The optional piano black veneer handsomely offsets the chrome gear selector surround and is pleasingly free of any hazing or discolouration.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The R-S cab will always maintain a harmony of benign cruiser / tactile GT and with over 500hp available the contrast is pronounced. The ZF gearbox is perfectly matched to the supercharged characteristics of the engine, without unnecessary downshifting in automatic mode and offering sharp shifts through the wheel mounted paddles.
The engine is tight and smooth, to be expected with such low mileage, and has enjoyed the benefit of fastidious main dealer & specialist upkeep.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The optional 20 inch wheels complete a menacing colour combination and look stunning in gloss black. Sitting on Pirelli P Zero rubber with excellent tread, the car performs beautifully on test with excellent road holding, refinement and stopping power.
