XK Firms Up And Trims Down

Details of the new Jaguar XK Coupe and Convertible have been released by the Coventry-based firm.

Decreased weight and increased stiffness are fundamental to improving a car's handling and the data suggests that these should be two of the most nimble new Jaguars ever produced.

Once the reduced weight is coupled with a two per cent increase in power, the cheap new Jaguars' acceleration and top speed should also benefit significantly.

Overall the new Jaguar XKs benefit from a ten per cent increase in their power to weight ratios making for 0 to 62mph times of 6.2 seconds for the Coupe and 6.3 seconds for the Convertible.

According to ITV motoring the first of the cheap new Jaguar XK Coupes will be delivered during the first quarter of 2006 with the Convertibles following at the start of the summer.
