Now normally, when I think of getting behind the wheel of a massive four door saloon, performance is not the first thing that comes to mind. Stateliness? Sure. Luxury? Yes, of course. But actively tuned exhaust notes and a 550HP Supercharged V8 bolted onto a sublime 8 speed gearbox? Rarely.
That was, of course, until I spent 72 hours with the 2014 Jaguar XJR.
