Jaguar XKR-S

Written by tonks on October 2, 2008

Jaguar quietly and stealthily revealed the new XKR-S. This new supercar is powered by a 4.2 liter V8 engine that pushes out 420 horsepower. All this power is sent to the rear wheels through the six speed automatic gearbox – which is built Jaguar’s sequential shift system.

With this kind of power it is no surprise to us that it can rev from 0 to 60 in only 5.2 seconds and has a top speed of 174 miles per hour. This makes it the fastest Jaguar supercar since the XJ220. The revised suspension shows dampers, new springs, a recalibrated CATS (Computer Active Technology Suspension), and a larger rear anti-roll bar. The active exhaust, revised aerodynamic aids, and 400mm Alcon R Performance brakes help to balance out the complete package.

This newest Jaguar supercar will only be limited to 200 units and will be available in both right and left hand drive. Unfortunately we here in the U.S. won’t get a chance to take it out for a drive.
