Event Coverage: Mad Dogs and Englishmen at the Gilmore - Jaguar XK

Ever since Rocket Sport Racing brought their XKR-S Race car out to the MSU Car show back in 2014, I've listed the XKR-S on my top 10 favorite car list. So seeing a collection of the XK line of cars at Mad Dogs and Englishmen was pretty cool. There were earlier models like this Convertible here...

..

And this late 90's model, slightly resembling the Classic E-type, which you'll see here a bit later...

..

To the more recent models like this XKR. While resembling an Aston Martin DB9, it was generally seen as a less expensive variant, from what I remember from Top Gear.

This one is probably my favorite variant of the XKR-S. Back when I played Gran Turismo, I built up one of these with about 845hp and put nearly 3500 miles on it in game. I'd love to get one of these someday.

I'll wrap up this post with the rear 3/4 view of the XKR-S. I would have loved to hear the 5.0L Supercharged V8 rev a few times, but I still enjoyed looking at the car.

Thanks for reading, and be sure to check back often for more content!
