But that’s not the only reason for our accolade. The stunning Coupé is blessed with one of the most evocative badges in the world of motoring. If you want to turn heads, look no further.'

On receiving the award Ian Callum commented: 'This is a tremendous achievement for the XK in a category with such strong competition. Jaguar continues to be about the creation of fast, beautiful cars – we're honoured that CarBuyer should see fit to recognise the XK with such an Award.'
