Jaguar XKR-S Unveiled Ahead Of Geneva Debut

In January we showed you spy photos of a camouflaged Jaguar XKR, that we thought is another facelift. It turns out it was all-new XKR-S that will make its public debut next week at the Geneva Motor Show.

The uprated supercharged 5.0 litre V8 engine develops now 542bhp and 680 Nm of torque. That’s enough to accelerate from 0-60mph in 4.2 seconds and reach a top speed of 186mph. These numbers make the XKR-S the quickest Jaguar ever.

“The XKR-S is a bold and exciting new model for Jaguar,” said Adrian Hallmark, Jaguar’s new Global Brand Director. “We expect to attract both loyal and new Jaguar driving enthusiasts who still want the comfort, opulence and class only a Jaguar can offer, combined with inspirational performance.”
