2008 C300 (W204) .Vs Jaguar XJR (Newer model)

I lost, and knew that I would but I'm not ashamed as my lowly 228hp C300 w/7gtronic trans held it's own and put up a good fight. My wife and I are sitting at a two lane left hand turn waiting for a green when a guy pulls up in a 2006-ish Jaguar XJR. Light turns green and we both leave the light, since it's a left for both of us, me in the inside him out there was no drama until I heard him hit the hammer mid turn. I said screw it and toggled down a gear and hammered it. For a split second the Jag was gaining no ground and we were about neck & neck, then he slowly started pulling ahead, enphasis on "slowly". I would be willing to bet a C350 would have held him in place and a C63 AMG left him in dust. We shut it down at about 80, basically a quick "gentleman" run. After looking it up once we got home I confirmed that car had over 400hp, and I deffinately saw the red/green XJR badge on the trunk. I'm not surprised the least I got beat, just expected to be "walked" or "creamed"

Nice story. I used to have an older XJR (2000) before I got my E55 and while they are relatively quick, I do think that you are correct, a C63 would absolutely destroy it (unless is was heavily modded). Those Jags are definitely sleepers though.

400hp and light aluminum frame spells sleeper
