Jaguar XK: The Cutest In Its Class
Nothing makes a woman feel more accomplished than cruising down the expressway in a shiny new convertible — top down, Mary J. blasting, Chanel sunglasses shining, wearing a “you can hate me now” smirk on her face.
Since haters get sick when they sense your success, why not give them a reason to frown as you glide by in the 2007 Jaguar XK?
Jaguar’s sporty convertible includes all of the modern necessities like keyless entry and starting and two-stage unlocking, perfect for the modern woman who is cognizant of the importance of safety. Adaptive Cruise Control, active front lighting, an LED backup light, ultrasonic rear parking aids and Forward Alert, are valuable features that take some of the worries out of your drive.
You won’t ruin your fresh manicure trying to unlatch the drop top, the XK's triple-layer convertible soft top folds with a simple push of a button, exerting less energy than it takes to gloss your lips. The hydraulic actuators and electronic controls allow for swift storage in under 20 seconds. When fully folded and stored beneath a trim tonneau cover, there's still room for you and three of your flyest friends.
Rapid acceleration is clocked at zero to 60 mph in less than 5 seconds useful for fast getaways from unwanted suitors. Top speed is electronically limited to 155 mph. The massive brakes are incredible, powerful enough to stop the car in just over 113 feet from 60 mph. The fuel mileage is 18 mpg within the bustling limits of the city and 26 mpg on the highway.
The body's rigid low mass helps reduce energy on impact. This car's incredible lightness means it needs less power and uses less fuel, keeping the most significant source of power where it needs to be, behind the wheel.
In comparison to the 2007 Mercedes-Benz CLK350 which starts at $54,200 and the BMW 6 series convertible which starts at $71,800, the 2007 Jaguar XK has a significantly higher price tag at $81,500 which may be the negating factor for the wise woman who knows her treasure is in heaven. But for those who want to live life to the limit and love it a lot, the Jaguar XK is definitely the cutest in its class, full of pizzazz and will get you where you are going in high style. -te-erika patterson
