SaabKyle videos are usually long and super thorough in-depth tours and reviews of the cars he features. But every now and then he takes one these cars that has a particularly nice soundtrack out for a quick spin. The car in question this time is a 2016 Jaguar XJR, and although the focus here is on the exhaust note you also get a good look at the car itself and get a sense of how it drives.

Jaguar XJR is a luxury saloon afflicted with obscurity, even though it is a fantastic piece of engineering. Some may it’s because it looks kind of weird, but if you can live with that design the car is an excellent choice over the Merc and Audis of this segment.
