12 Rounds with…2010 BMW 760Li vs. 2011 Jaguar XJL Supercharged
Can the Bavarian benchmark pummel this British beauty in the battle for super-sedan supremacy? by Steve Irsay
Let's be honest: no one under the age of 50 would be caught dead in the previous XJ. Sadly, its thoroughly modern aluminum underpinnings and impressive performance were buried beneath stuffy styling that was essentially nipped and tucked for the better part of four decades. Conversely, the BMW 7 Series has evolved dramatically over five generations, consistently refreshing its nouveau riche cache with advanced technology and driving excitement. Well, one look at the sleek new XJL Supercharged and it's clear this is not your father's (or grandfather's) Jag. But can this V8-powered British beauty keep pace with a 12-cylinder Bavarian bruiser? To find out, we go 12 rounds in a super-sedan slugfest.
