– 2011 Jaguar XJL Supersport Road Test & Review

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.
