1966 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 in New York City

While the iconic E-Type sports car blazed the trail with its 4.2 liter V8 engine (265 HP at 5,500 rpm) amped with triple SU carburetors (considered unprecedented during those times) that lets it sprint from 0-60 mph in 7 seconds, the new & promising Jaguar XJ flagship line, the 2012 Jaguar XJ LWB boasts of a 5,000cc Supercharged V8 engine allowing for 470bhp at 6,000-6,500 rpm (424 lb ft at 2,500-5,500 rpm) of maximum torque that lets the XJ reach a top speed of 155 mph and accelerate from 0-60 mph in only 4.9 s.
