You meant M6 right? the XKR is usally compared with stuff like AMV8s, SL63, R8, M6 etc.

Either ways as AM stated it is faster. for 92 ex showroom with all options ticked it was surely a no brainer.

But again in the handling department I know of the BMW having an upper hand, But By how much The owners have to tell us.
So you feel the M3 is a better handling machinethan the XKR?
and why is that?

Well, I thought even the M3 is capable of going head to head with the XKR. Not a big fan of the M6.

Why didn't you opt for the special edition XKR that comes with sexy black wheels and red calipers Have you taken the optional 'speed pack' too?

Stunning pics of the Brit. The XK-R is one of the most usable supercars around and the interiors are classic. Love your ride v10.

Boy oh boy! One of the most gorgeous cars ever to grace Indian roads IMO. The dark-blue is off-set so well by the well-crafted, white-ish interiors. Fantastic, stunning! The XK-R would definitely find a place in my dream garage!

Congratulations once again, v10!

Great pics V10, the backdrop(i.e your place) makes the pic look a zillion bucks. Pefect color for a brit.

Congrats, on the car and your place

I can bet that atleast 10 bhpians have one of these pictures as their wallpaper already.
Superb Car. And the background OMG (Janice Style). Which part of Delhi is this?

Beautiful car! The first pic is wallpaper material man! The XKR has nice interiors and I bet that must be the most comfortable driving seat in any coupe.

Beautiful pictures. I wish I could snap my ride on such beautiful lawns. Maybe I'll drive onto the CCI ground "by mistake" or something
