Jaguar XF 2010 - AutoWeek
AutoWeek News and Reviews
AutoWeek Associate Publisher, Dutch Mandel takes us on a tour of the Jaguar
XF. The XF is Jaguar's new luxury sport sedan.
2010 Jaguar XF Supercharged
Base Price: $68,000
As-Tested Price: $68,000
Drivetrain: 5.0-liter supercharged V8; RWD, six-speed automatic
Output: 470 hp @ 6,000 rpm, 424 lb-ft @ 2,500 rpm
Curb Weight: 4,306 lb
Fuel Economy: (EPA/AW) 17/19.8 mpg
Even after being around for a couple of years, the XF hasn't lost any of
its street appeal. Back when we had our long-termer, I would constantly get
stopped and asked about the sexy cat at grocery store parking, gas stations
and everywhere else. And why wouldn't people ask about it? I mean, look at
it! The car is gorgeous.
Sure enough, when I got gas last night I was once again asked about the
slick looking feline. This time it was a slightly tipsy gentleman who
stumbled out of the pub next door to purchase some cigarettes from the gas
station. Maybe it was the beer goggles that made the car look 300 pounds
lighter, but he stood in front of the car stunned and continually told me
how beautiful it was. He asked about the price, how it drove and how much
horsepower it had.
Speaking of horsepower, this test car is
packing a more potent punch compared to our long-termer. For the 2010 model
year, Jag slid in a new engine under the hood of the XF. Replacing the
previous 4.2-liter supercharged V8 is a 5.0-liter supercharged V8 for an
increase of 50 hp to 470 and small bump in torque of 11-lb-ft to 424. The
lightning quick ZF automatic gearbox remains, which is a good thing.
The extra power is noticeable from the first throttle mash and pushes the
car well past posted speed limits in short order. The car remains light on
its feet with quick response to steering inputs and the suspension keeping
the car well planted in all situations. Brakes return instant grab.
I'm still mildly entertained by the handshake at start-up with the opening
vents and raising shift knob from the center console. What I still don't
like much is the center touch screen that controls functions navigation,
sound, heated/cooled seats and steering and etc. Going between menu screens
still includes a screen wipe that saps precious seconds from your life that
you will never get back, and it requires you to sometimes have pinpoint
accuracy when using it. It's not something that would make me not recommend
the car, but it's an annoyance.

Can Jag Beat BMW? Jaguar XF vs BMW 550i @ the Track
MORE TRACK INFO @ INSIDELINE.COM:
Last May, the newly introduced Jaguar XF surprised us. It went head to
head with the best midsize luxury sedans from Germany and came out on top.
It was fast, comfortable and surprisingly competent through turns, but of
course, that was the top-of-the-line supercharged model.
For 2010, the Jaguar XF gets a pair of all-new 5.0-liter V8s: one normally
aspirated in the XF Premium, the other supercharged in the new XFR. We'll
test an XFR soon, but today Inside Line is the first to take the new
non-supercharged 5.0-liter-powered 2010 Jaguar XF Premium to the test
track. Rated at 385 horsepower and 380
pound-feet of torque it's not quite as powerful as the former 4.2-liter
supercharged V8, but it's close.
To see just how close, we brought back a 2009 BMW 550i to see how the new
Jag stacks up when it's not getting help from a Supercharger. Given that the BMW is giving up 25
hp and 20 lb-ft of torque, we expected a close contest - and got one.
2013 BMW 750Li vs 2013 Jaguar XJL Supercharged! - Head 2 Head Ep. 35
On this episode of Head 2 Head, Motor Trend's Jonny Lieberman gets behind
the wheel of two of the finest long wheelbase luxury sedans - the 2013 BMW
750Li and the Jaguar XJL Supercharged - to see which one of them does
justice to their $100,000 plus price tags. First, Jonny heads to the track
to see what kinds of numbers these large, premium sedans put down, then he
sees how they both handle on the rough roads outside of Santa Barbara,
before finally getting chauffered in the back seat of the cars to examine
their distinct approaches to high-end luxury. So which one will stand out
as the best in its class? Stay tuned to find out.
Head 2 Head appears every other Wednesday on the Motor Trend channel.

C-130 YMC-130H Lockheed Hercules flight test accident crash
Discovery Communications Content copyright.
Top secret Iran hostage rescue mission aircraft
YMC-130H were three modified Lockheed Hercules Aircraft for Top Secret
"Operation Credible Sport", for second Iran hostage crisis rescue attempt.
One of the measures considered for a second hostage rescue attempt in Iran
was a project to develop a "Super STOL" aircraft, to be flown by Combat
Talon crews, that would use a soccer stadium near the US Embassy as an
improvised landing field. Called Credible Sport, the project acquired three
C-130H transports from an airlift unit in late August 1980, one as a test
bed and two for the mission, and modified them on an accelerated basis.
Designated as the XFC-130H, the aircraft were modified by the installation
of 30 rockets in five sets: eight firing forward to stop the aircraft,
eight downward to brake its descent rate, eight rearward for takeoff
assist, four mounted on the wings to stabilize them during takeoff
transition, and two at the rear of the tail to prevent it from striking the
ground because of over-rotation. Other STOL features included a dorsal and
two ventral fins on the rear fuselage, double-slotted flaps and extended
ailerons, a new radome, a tailhook for landing aboard an aircraft carrier,
and Combat Talon avionics, including a TF/TA radar, a defensive
countermeasures suite, and a Doppler radar/GPS tie-in to the aircraft's
inertial navigation system.
Of the three aircraft, only one received full modification. The program
abruptly ended when it crashed during testing on October 29, 1980, and
international events soon after rendered another rescue attempt moot.
