Pinch me! The new Jaguar XK will soon menacingly prowl the British highways. Pinch me again. The top-of-the-range XKR-S version may be the fastest vehicle ever produced by the legendary manufacturer. Here come the statistics: 5.0-litre supercharged V8 engine, 543bhp, 0-100mph in 8.7 seconds, and a top speed of nearly 200mph. This cat certainly has claws, and is quite content to climb over its competitors' curtains. Sounds good to me.

There have been changes to the exterior too. These include the: revised front bumper, its nose and grill, plus the headlamps are now smaller and have LED running lights. The wings have also been modified, so now feature horizontal vents that – until recently – have been avoided as they look 'too Aston Martin'. Furthermore, the XKR-S has: new sills, a rear spoiler, and carbon fibre rear valance. It certainly looks far more aggressive than its sibling.

New Jaguar XK buyers will choose from seventeen striking exterior colours, six revised interior colourways, and three new dashboard veneers. This magnificent two-door beauty also has a new steering wheel and switchgear, a rotary gear selector, upgraded instrument cluster, and blue LED ambient lighting. There have also been improvements to the handling and feel, particularly for the range-topping XKR-S. Okay, enough - stop pinching me now.
