Compared to the older XK X100, the new X150 is a completely new car as it is no longer based on the Jaguar XJS.
It was designed by Ian Callum and was unveiled at the 2005 Frankfurt Motor Show. The XK lineup underwent a facelift in 2009 and 2011.
Need for Speed: Carbon
The XK performs very similar to the Aston Martin DB9 except for a better acceleration and handling.
Regardless of whether the player has the Collector's Edition or not, a red XK will always appear in several of the cutscenes during the career mode.
- In the PlayStation 2 and Wii releases of Need for Speed: Carbon, the Jaguar XK seen in Darius' cutscenes is silver.
