The Jaguar XK's blend of comfort, style, and speed is unique, but others have their own take on the concept.
Maserati's GranTurismo is the Italian version, with Ferrari V-8 power and engine notes, as well as custom-tailored interior and a svelte, European exterior.
BMW's 6-Series offers a different experience in a similar vein, with higher curb weights and lower power outputs (excepting the potent M6), as well as a look and feel all its own--though perhaps somewhat less head-turning than the XK.
The Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is all-new for 2014, and while it's not from a luxury brand, available upgrades to the interior make it a legitimate competitor, while its heritage of track-inspired performance give it the speed to hang with vehicles more often classified as supercars.
Mercedes-Benz's SL Class is far more focused on the grand touring side of things, with no real emphasis on edgy performance at all; on the luxury scale, however, the SL approaches a 10.
The Porsche 911, like the Corvette, is a sports car first, and everything else second, but unlike the Chevy, the 911's luxury is standard, and it even offers a back seat that's somewhat more usable thank the XK's.
