    Jaguar XKS - Damnit!

    Ran into a new Jaguar XKS on my lunch break today. I was sitting next to him at a light, not really paying any attention but when the light turned green he takes off like a bat from hell. I was like WTF! Hell No! So I layed in the Z hard, slowly catch up to him and from about 40 - 90 I could not pass him and he couldn't pull me. What the hell! We were dead neck to neck till we shut it down, so, being the nice person I am looked over and waved. This asshole didn't even look over, he just kept driving along so I backed off and cussed for a few minutes. My camaro finally let me down, I should've raped that car. Hell, last night I put a couple miles on a Audi TT so why couldn't I pull in a Jaguar? For some reason my car didn't pull as hard as it usually does.. Oh well...

    Beware, some Jags have a 400hp supercharged V8. I believe all of the car's names include "R". If the Jag that you raced was supercharged it would be called a XKR. They are very low 13 sec cars.

    You know, it might have been something like that. The car has a very wild sound to it and I could hear it over my loud Z-28. Is there any way of telling if it was a XJR other than the emblem on the rear? It was black on black but I couldn't see the emblem on the rear of the car.

    I just ran one today. I was sittin at a light looking at the R on his brake calipers. (tryin to figure out what is was), The light went green and he took off like a bat out of hell. So I got into it, top of first i had one car on him and slowly pulled him up to third. It was a lot faster then i thought it would be. And to top it off the guy must have been in his late 50's with his wife in the car......

    If he told his wife to get out at the stop light, he would have!

    Well, then he wouldn't have the car any more, for sure.

    I did some research on that car, it has a 4.2 L DOHC with a Roots supercharger, sounds a lot like an 03 Cobra motor to me.

    If he was to put a pulley and full exhaust on that b*tch it would be wicked, and be riding in class too. Damn, I might need to test drive one.

    Good kill man, if I had more road then I would've pulled him in but from the hole up to when we shut down he was right there the whole time. What mods do you have done?

    i doubt that anyone with a jag has modded it with anything like what you said. LMAO you'd kill them so fast!

    Did build your own (4-door R model), chose the red with champagne leather interior and birds-eye maplewood trim, without the upgraded wheels (why pay 1500 for gay ass factory wheels, when you can get nicer aftermarket wheels for a better price?)

    63 grand, roughly. For that kind of price, you will see me behind the wheel of a C6 Z06.

    My aunt has one, I had to watch her dogs while they were in Aspen and man was it tempting to take it out for a spin. If only I knew where the keys were. She jokes around w/ me telling me she wants to race but im sure it will never happen.

    very true, I'd take the C6 over that Jag anyday, although it is a nice car

    My mods are Hotchkis , traling arms, panhard rod,and tower barce. Kenny Brown subframe connects, 6 point rollcage, Pro 5.0 shifter with lous short stick. SLP lid ,cai, Borla cat back. and all the free mods. I bought the car like this all I added was the lid and the shifter. I think it has a proformance clutch and a real good tune as well ????

    I think you are correct. I have a family member that has the "r" version. its pretty quick and very smooth.... But he will not race me.. He says his car is for cruzin.. go figure. if I had the money for a car like that I probably would be the same way..
