Photos & Info: Jaguar XKR-S

The Jaguar XKR-S is known as the fastest and most powerful production sports car Jaguar has ever built.

The XKR-S is a coupe body styled with usage of carbon fiber on the front fascia, diffuser and spoiler extensively. The vehicle was unveiled at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show.

A serious performance machine you can call it, since it is the most responsive, powerful, agile, and driver-focused production car. It is built on the regular XKR, adding massive power and other upgrades to the interior and exterior.

Under the bonnet of the performance machine is a supercharged AJ-V8 Gen III R direct-injection engine pumping out 542 hp, which is 40hp more than the XKR, It will whack you baby! Fitted with a 6-speed automatic transmission that offers feather quality drive allowing you to sprint from 0-100kmph in 4.2 seconds and leap a top-speed of 300 km/h.

From the exterior the most predominant eye catching element is the front fascia which incorporates a wider, lower air intake, a carbon-fiber splitter and twin side nacelles. The rear ensures the aerodynamic nature of the car by a unique rear wing with carbon-fiber insert and the diffuser in carbon fiber. It also boasts Vulcan 20-inch alloy (Dark Technical Finish) and Pirelli P-Zero tyres. Overall, the look is aggressive, and that’s what I like it!

Key competitors to the Jaguar XKR-S are the Porsche 911 Turbo, the AstonMartin V8 Vantage and the Maserati GranTurismo S.
