2. Model History

Making its debut at the Geneva Motor Show 2011, the XKR-S is the most extreme expression yet of Jaguar's passion for building beautiful, fast cars. For the first time with a series production car, Jaguar gains entry to the exclusive '300km/h club' thanks to the effortless performance of the supercharged 5.0-litre AJ-V8 engine. A revised fuelling map means the direct-injection powerplant now produces 550PS and 680Nm of torque. Extensive recalibration has ensured that power delivery and performance are seamless, contributing to a 0-60mph time of 4.2 seconds. The Performance active exhaust encourages and rewards the enthusiastic driver with dramatic, motorsport-inspired aural feedback. The XKR-S is not merely the quickest Jaguar ever but also the most agile, responsive and driver-focused. The pinnacle of the XK range builds on feedback gathered from the supercharged XKR and has been developed to extend the performance parameters of the car. This new harder-edged character allows the enthusiastic driver to explore the outer limits of the car's dynamics without losing the refinement and usability for which Jaguar is famous. The structural integrity of the lightweight aluminium platform allowed the suspension to be reworked using bespoke components for increased stiffness without a commensurate loss in either refinement or Jaguar's legendary ride comfort. A reworked aluminium front suspension knuckle and revised rear geometry are allied to stiffer springs and dampers, lightweight forged alloy wheels and recalibrated steering effort to minimise any response delays and produce a more connected and agile driving experience. The performance of the XKR-S is reflected in both its interior and exterior styling, the latter featuring exclusive new paint colours that reflect Jaguar's racing heritage. As with competition Jaguars of the past, the exterior of the XKR-S adheres to the principle of form following function. In addition to the styling changes and in order for it to achieve 300km/h, the XKR-S was the subject of extensive Computational Fluid Dynamics development work. The resulting changes reduced front and rear lift by more than a quarter and optimised lateral aerodynamic stability. The sporting intent of the XKR-S is clear from the moment the driver enters the cabin thanks to new cosseting Performance seats with prominent shoulder wings for close support during hard cornering. The seats feature 16-way adjustment, memory and heating functions while a new three-spoke steering wheel provides the perfect interface between car and driver.

3. Interior

The interior of the Jaguar XKR-S offers that same excitement that the exterior does, matching the drive to provide a pure, exhilarating experience for both driver and passengers. Opted from the factory with the black leather performance Recaro sports seats with red stitch detail, black leather dash, black leather door card inserts, flint grey carpets with leather-edged mats, black leather centre armrest and drivers tunnel surrounding the centre console. The charcoal facia detailing and the XKR-S exclusive dashboard insert finish the interior space in a fantastic fashion.

4. Exterior

The styling of the XKR-S is dramatic in every sense, despite being designed to ensure the most outstanding possible performance Jaguar has done its usual trick and made a genuinely stunning X150. Created through several hours of wind tunnel testing the flagship XKR undertook several exterior modifications to ensure it was the ultimate car. Presented in Ultimate Black with the 20" Forged Vulcan Alloys in gloss black, the XKR-S looks genuinely staggering. Further exterior details come in the form of the black gloss grille and side vents and the SVR carbon fibre rear spoiler. The XKR-S also has wider sills than the standard XKR and also comes with that quad exhaust at the rear that makes such a great soundtrack.
