They are going to need to do better than that vs. the V, considering the 420hp XF supercharged version is already in the low 60k range. I guess if you like the Jaguar design and image it is still a great value.

Not everyone is trying to find a bargain when buying a car or the cheapest fastest car, I much rather own a Jaguar than a Caddy.

Hmmm.......510 hp in a Aston Martin look alike, or a 500 hp Cadillac......decisions decisions. Granted the Cadillac may be faster and handle better but not everybody wants to fastest and the bets handling car

I'd take the jag and I'd also bet $100 bucks that the Jag rides twice as nice.

And if I can recall this cars designs have been around for 10 years or so, the DB9/Vanquish/All of astons recent stuff has been redesigned for the past 8 years. So whose really the look alike?

I agree, there are so many nice sedans out there these days (all ridiculously fast) so its really up to buyers what they like and what they dont like

Yup, most of the sedans in this price range offer such great all around package, that you can get by with basing the purchase on aesthetics...

The V is my first choice, but the XFR is a close 2nd! I think at the price they'll ask, itll be a rare car too.
