The 2014 Jaguar XJR boasts an understated front and rear design.

Full-sized, four-door sedans are generally considered the meat and potatoes on the automotive menu, not the fancy dessert – that’s what sports cars are for. But two sedans we recently drove for a week and tested on the racetrack, the Jaguar XJR and the Mercedes E63 AMG, are the entire meal.

For most of us, these high-powered beasts will only ever be aspirational. The XJR has a list price of $120,170, including $3,275 in largely unnecessary cosmetic packages and delivery preparation, while the E63 is a relative bargain at $106,825, which includes the performance package, delivery preparation and $2,530 in custom trim options.
