CNET doesn't solely review computer and consumer electronics related stuff, they also test cars like the exotic XKR sports car from Jaguar. This time they have taken a look at the new 2006 model, here's a small quote from their full review:
The 2006 Jaguar XKR is the last model year of a body style that launched in 1997, to be replaced in late 2006 by the radically redesigned 2007 Jaguar XK. The 2006 XKR bests the upcoming next-generation XK, at least as it will initially be released, in one very noticeable way: pure, raw power. Its supercharged version of the 4.2-liter AJ-V-8 engine makes a maximum of 390 horsepower, with 399 pound-feet of torque. The XKR is a fine homage to Jaguar's heritage in both performance and luxury. And it's one of the last of the big cats to come from Jaguar's venerable Brown's Lane plant, first used in 1951.
