You’ve heard of them.The XJ. You’ve heard of that as well.But if you’re like most people, when someone mentions the Jaguar XJ, your first thought is probably that of sitting in the back seat of your childhood friend’s XJ6, with its signature quadruple circle headlamps and iconic chrome jaguar cat leaping off the front of the hood. And in all likelihood, your friend’s dad owned the XJ to be different; to prove that he didn’t conform to the 7-Series/S-Class masses.

 

They were lemmings according to him, and in a way, he was right.But we’re not here to talk about the past. Quite the opposite actually. We are here to educate. To change perception. For the better. No, for the best.To say that the XJ received a complete redesign back in 2009 would be a gross understatement. And to list all the design and engineering changes would take more time than you have available.Honestly, it doesn’t matter. Just look at it. It’s beautiful.

 

I would even go as far to say that the XJ is the best looking luxury sedan available right now.Speaking of the now, enter the 2012 Jaguar XJ Supersport. A beefed up, sportier, and thanks the “speed pack” option, sexiest XJ available. The best of the best if you will.Sporting a 510hp power plant (vs. 385hp in the standard XJ), the Supersport will launch the 4,281lb beast to 60 in an awe inspiring 4.7 seconds.

 

To put this in perspective, Jaguar’s newly released “fastest production Jaguar ever” XKR-S makes the same sprint to 60 in 4.2. Yep, it’s that fast.And thanks to the standard 20” wheels wrapped in Dunlop SP Sport Maxx GT rubber, a sport tuned suspension, near 50/50 weight distribution, and an all aluminum body that has been riveted together like an aircraft, the Supersport will eat up any curve that you can throw at it with ease.

 

So much so that you will enter a corner at speed and think to yourself “I better back off”, but don’t because while it may look like a monstrous sedan (let’s be fair, it is), the engineers at Jaguar have found a way to make the XJ Supersport feel like a much smaller sports sedan when it’s pushed.Simply put, the XJ Supersport lives up to the “supersport” name without any debate. So what about the rest? - See more at: http://uptownmagazine.com/2012/09/2012-jaguar-xj-super-sportpride-of-the-litter/#sthash.X7E3m8HC.dpuf
