Using the same high performance 550PS 5.0-litre supercharged V8 engine as
the XKR-S, the new sports saloon is capable of reaching 100 km/h in an amazing 4.6 seconds from a standing start and can
go on to an impressive top speed on a race track of 300 km/h (electronically controlled).
Global Brand Director Adrian Hallmark commented: "This is a car of incredible potency, with a visceral blend of
power, driver involvement and control."
The new Jaguar XFR-S made its global dynamic debut on the famous Goodwood Hill on Wednesday 20th March. Finished in
Italian Racing Red, the prototype version of Jaguar's fastest ever sports saloon was driven in front of a media audience
at Goodwood by 1988 Le Mans 24hr race winner Andy Wallace.
First shown at the Los Angeles Motor Show in November last year, the stunning XFR-S will be joined at Goodwood
Festival of Speed press day by icons of Jaguar's sporting past. A 1962 Jaguar Mk. II prepared by Jaguar Heritage Racing,
and a 1954 'short nose' Jaguar D-Type - chassis No.1 and itself a development prototype - were displayed by the Jaguar
Heritage Trust in front of Goodwood House.
Adrian Hallmark said: "I'm delighted that Jaguar is able to present the XFR-S in action for the first time in the
UK, and that a Jaguar motor sport hero will be behind the wheel."
With an increase of 29kW and 55Nm over the XFR in power and torque from its 5.0-litre supercharged V8 engine, the
XFR-S produces an astonishing to 404kW and 680Nm.
The European release of the new Jaguar XFR-S is planned for the third quarter this year.
