For many years Jaguar watched the traditional XJ line of cars deteriorate. While sticking to the vintage design, the company saw a decrease in sales and the effect it had. They decided to modernize the car with a complete redesign and in doing so increased its popularity and made it a truly stand-out vehicle in its class. The Jaguar XJ Supersport is one of the models released that defies the expectations of the Jag market.

Since redesigning a car begins with the outside, it was a sure bet that the Jaguar XJ Supersport was going to gather attention with its new appearance. It has done more than that. The materials used to design the exterior do more than add a stylish flair to them. They also aid the car in achieving the performance that Jaguar wanted to make possible. Handling is better and the vehicle simply appears more agile on the road. Of course it also looks nice and makes others stop and take notice.

A Jag wouldn't be a Jag if it only appeared nice from the outside. It has to showcase elegance, class and style inside the cabin as well. The Jaguar XJ Supersport does just that. From the LCD gauges to the host of standard features for comfort it is easy to see that this vehicle was designed to be modern and up-to-date. Add to that the leather and wood interior and it creates a vehicle that seriously is second to none. The one area where the cabin lacks is in space. The rear of the vehicle may be a bit cramped for some and the cargo area lacks the room of other luxury sedans.

The Jaguar XJ Supersport does not make promises that it cannot deliver on. One trip in this vehicle will show the driver just how powerful it can be. It has the nimble handling, excellent steering and overall positive ride quality of the entire XJ line while being backed by the most powerful engine available for this line of Jag. That leads to an experience that will leave everyone wanting more.

It's no secret that the engine of the Jaguar XJ Supersport is the top one available in the XJ line of sedans. It is a supercharged 5.0 liter 510 horsepower V8. There is simply nothing that the Supersport cannot do with this kind of power. A six speed automatic transmission and rear wheel drive mean that it is also easy to operate and drive. Reaching sixty takes only a few seconds and the fuel economy is not much different than less powerful XJ models.
