When I look at all the fashion shows,
especially of Gucci and Chanel, I wonder how
hard it is to truly dress that way every day.
How wonderful it would be to pull off those
extravagant looks throughout all of life’s little
chores, in and out of the house. Of course,
for the majority of women, it’s not possible,
nor realistic. But there’s a way to pull off an
equally show-stopping, jaw-dropping first
impression no matter where you go. Enter the
2010 Jaguar XFR, guaranteed to have you
looking glamorous, sophisticated, elegant and
totally chic. The XFR will never fail to stir up
your senses with its unique sound, power and
performance. Sleek and clean lines define the
XFR, and when you add that an out-of-this-
world 510hp, this vehicle serves as the absolute
perfect stiletto to your black dress. Once you
have all the accessories you need, all you have
to do in step inside and let the exclusive and
futuristic technology take you to a whole new
world — on a whole new level. Imagine the
lights turning on, the AC in your hair, the radio
blasting to your favorite tune — who needs the
runway when you’ve got endless stretches of
road ahead of you?!
