Roadfly spent some well needed quality time with one of the all time great, luxury automobiles… a Jaguar. We specifically road tested the new 2011 Jaguar XJL Supersport. The “L” stands for long wheel base and the Supersport means there’s a 500 horsepower supercharged V8 under the hood.
Competitors to this wonderful British sports sedan include the Audi A8, the Porsche Panamera Turbo, the Bentley Flying Spur, and a few other luxury super cars.
When describing the interior the words that come to mind start with luxurious, sexy, functional, cool, and continue from there.

Six-speed automatic transmission with adaptive shift control
Unequal length wishbones, subframe-mounted coil springs, multi-link rear suspension, air springs

Length/Width/Height (in.): 206.6/74.6/57
Wheelbase: 124.3 in.
Curb Weight: 4,323 lb
Peak Power: 510 hp @ 6000 rpm
Peak Torque: 461 lb-ft @ 2500 rpm
0-62 mph: 4.7 sec.
