The XK Series needs only to utter its categorization to entice customers. As a luxury sports car, the 2003 Jaguar XK Series is a car-enthusiasts dream. If you are ever lucky enough to drive one of the Jaguar XK Series models, you will be a very happy person.

When you get inside and fire up the engine, you will instantly realize the power at your control. Looking around the interior confirms luxury status, while a few turns at the wheel will leave you begging for more. After all, you are driving a luxury sports car.

Available Models
The 2003 Jaguar XK Series comes in two body styles: coupe and convertible. XK8 and XKR trims are offered with both.

Interior Features
Two-door Jaguar XK Series coupes and convertibles seat four passengers. There are countless standard interior features that make the ride as comfortable as ever. Air conditioning with automatic climate controls, a power tilt/telescopic wood/leather-wrapped steering wheel with radio controls, leather upholstery, heated front bucket seats with power lumbar support, a memory system for the driver seat, steering wheel and mirrors, an Alpine AM/FM/cassette player with a 6-disc CD changer and a trip computer are all provided.

An electrically adjustable steering column with entry/exit mode is now standard on all models (memory optional). New equipment options include an upgraded DVD-based navigation system and an electrochromatic mirror with compass.

Exterior Features
The style of the 2003 Jaguar XK Series has always been about aesthetics. With subtle curves and a flowing form, the coupe and convertible truly are works of art.

As sports cars, the 2003 Jaguar XK coupe and convertible are fast and nimble. Both available engines are more powerful than ever, and that is really saying something. XK8 trims have a 4.2-liter V8 engine with 294 horsepower and 303 lb-ft. of torque. XKR models are speed demons, featuring a turbocharged engine of the same dimensions. Pumping out 390 horsepower and 399 lb-ft. of torque, the XKR will send chills down your spine.

The result: the XKR coupe reaches 60mph from a standstill in 5.2 seconds (0-100km/h in 5.4 seconds), with the XK8 taking 6.1 seconds (0-100km/h in 6.4 seconds).

Safety and Security
Race-bred Brembo brakes now standard on the XKR and optional on other models. Additional standard equipment across the board includes dual front airbags, front side airbags, antilock 4-wheel disc brakes, brake assist, an antiskid system and a rear-obstacle-detection system.

2003 Jaguar XK Highlights

Subtle exterior changes include new badging, a new headlight design, three new alloy wheel designs and new exterior colors – Pacific (sapphire blue), Jaguar Racing Green, Ebony (solid black) and Midnight (deep metallic black).
Key Standard Features: Electrically-adjustable steering column with entry/exit mode; automatic climate control; multi-adjustable heated front seats with power lumbar support; Connolly leather-trimmed interior; burl walnut trim; trip computer with message center; cruise control; 320-Watt Alpine premium AM/FM/cassette audio system; six-disc CD changer; two-position memory system for door mirrors, driver’s seat and steering wheel; security system with remote entry and immobilizer; three-channel HomeLink-compatible garage door/gate opener; front and rear foglamps; rain-sensing windshield wipers; puddle lamps on doors; one-touch down front windows; audio controls on steering wheel; retractable cupholders; auto-dimming inside mirror; and headlamp powerwash.
Optional on the XKR is Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC). The system uses microwave radar technology to sense slower traffic ahead, or another vehicle crossing into the driver’s path. It then interacts with the throttle (and if necessary the brakes) to select an appropriate speed.
