Jaguar XJL Supercharged Review

This swift luxury sedan improves upon the already-excellent Jaguar XJ with the addition of a 470-horsepower supercharged V8 engine. However, a seat behind the wheel of this queen of the cats doesn't come cheaply — with a base price of nearly 90,000 dollars, the XJL Supercharged puts a premium on power that, if you have the cash, is surely worth paying.
