Jaguar XKR-S Promo Revealed

YouTube Preview Image

We’ve seen the Jaguar XKR-S last week in Geneva where it made its first official appearance and now the automaker has launched a promo with this beauty. Just like I was saying a couple of days ago, I never was a big fan of Jaguar, but I’m starting to change my opinion as this new model looks beautiful from every single angle.

The XKR-S is part of the company’s 50th anniversary celebration of the iconic E-type, and comes with a brand new front bumper; mesh grilles, updated side skirts, along with LED-infused headlights. It also benefits from new front fenders, a sportier rear diffuser and a huge rear wing.

Beauty aside, it is the most powerful Jaguar ever made, featuring a supercharged V8 5.0-liter engine that cranks out a whopping 542 hp (550 PS / 405 kW) and 501 lb.-ft (680 Nm) of torque. It needs only 4.2 seconds to do the 0-60 mph sprint, before hitting a top speed of 186 mph (300 km/h).

We’ve forgot to mention that the XKR-S will be available with a revised suspension along with a retuned Adaptive Dynamic system which “allows the enthusiastic driver to explore the edges of the handling envelope.”

Impressed? I sure am.

You probably know by now that the 81st edition of the Geneva Motor Show is going to be one of the biggest automotive events of this year. With dozens of cars set to be launched, the auto show looks promising.

Thanks to this impressive engine, the car will be able to hit a top speed of 186 mph (300 km/h) and the 0-60 mph sprint will be done in only 4.2 seconds. Jaguar also said that the XKR S needs only 8.6 seconds to reach 100 mph from start. If these figures are real, it will be the fastest Jaguar ever made. All of these performances have a very important downside; the car will have CO2 emissions of almost 300 g / km.

The Jag also features an updated suspension system, new aerodynamics as well as a reprogrammed Adaptive Dynamics system.

We’ll have more info in March when Jaguar will bring the XKR S to Geneva.
