Jaguar XKR-S Not To Come Over To U.S.

Written by tonks on August 16, 2008

Jaguar XKR-SWe were disappointed to hear that the new Jaguar XKR-S will not be making its way over to the U.S. The XKR-S sports coupe is equipped with firmer dampers, stiffer springs, quickened steering, thick anti-roll bars, and lighter 20” alloy wheels.

Jaguar aerodynamic changes, include a new rear spoiler, reduce lift up front by 60 percent, and 17 percent at the rear, while overall drag drops by three percent. The supercharged V8 is unchanged and still offers 420-hp.

Limited to a run of just 200 cars, Jaguar North America doesn’t feel it can run head-to-head with the likes of tuned Porsches and other sports cars in the States so the automaker is limiting sales to just Germany and Britain.
