Agreed hands down ! Considering the fact that BMW didn't sell many numbers of M5 all these years and the XFR i think, have demolished it. Have already broken the number of M5's?? Way to go !!!

Yup they are the nevis rims which come only on the XFR and cannot be chosen as an option on any of the other 3 xf models. They are actually designed in such a way so that they suck in air to cool the brakes much like the Reventon's.

And yes why wont they outsell the M5's ? Almost similar performance ,more torque for something that is almost 15 lakhs less. (The m5 costs 1.11 crore on road in chennai )
And IMO it looks better than the M5 !

Woah, seems like Jaguar has truly stepped their game up from their previous rides, not that they were bad either. Keep it up! Thanks for the info.

Spotted another Jag XK-R today. I think Worli seaface is one of the best places for spotting great cars in mumbai. Along with the Jag, I spotted 1 chrysler 300D, a golden bentley continental GT, a white BMW Z4, a white porsche cayenne turbo, a RR sport and all this in 20 minutes !!!

I saw the XK-R today too! Same location.

Off Topic: The other rides I saw today were a white Rolls Royce Phantom and a red 4x4 with ridiculously fat tyres which I'm guessing was a Toyota, though I didn't see it's front!

All three vehicles spotted around Worli sea face/Atria Mall.

Spotted a dark (i guess black) Jag on 19th June 2010 at 2345 hours at Ayub's (popular eatery in Mumbai). Didn't really pay detailed attention.

That's probably a Toyota Hilux Surf you are talking about. Pictures of it have been posted elsewhere in this forum and it's parked in a building in Worli.
