What to drive: 2007 Jaguar XK


You could, of course, drive one of the hundreds of Toyota Tazz (think old, old Corolla) rental cars buzzing around the Cape Town area, sipping expensive fuel slowly and accelerating with the zeal of an eighth-grader compiling a book report. Instead, give yourself the means to absorb South African sunshine in the new XK or its open-top Convertible version, a stunning piece to match the stunning backdrops of Table Mountain or the winery mountain scenes near Stellenbosch. The XK’s evocative shape even improves when you lower the power top, and the engine note switches from a gentle growl to a toothy roar at the tip of the throttle. With quality and performance unseen in previous XKs, the new two-door makes a perfect companion for all the scenes you might encounter in the Cape region—and it may start a few of its own.
