Billed as the fastest and most powerful series production vehicle ever made by the brand, the XKR-S is expected to be available to order in September this year.
Offering a 5.0 liter V8 engine, Jaguar’s latest cub has been designed around its speed qualities with a dramatically redesigned front and a separate rear spoiler.
As Jaguar’s design director Ian Callum puts it, “if you don’t like the way it looks, you probably won’t like the way it drives either.”
It includes a refreshed interior, including 16-way adjustable heated sports seats with a memory function, designed to hold driver and passenger firmly in place during high-speed trips.
The XKR-S is one of a host of new and upgraded models being unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show, which is open to the public March 3 – 13 in Geneva, Switzerland.
