Jaguar points out that the XFR-S is the fastest, most powerful and agile sports saloon that Jaguar has ever built. The Jaguar XFR-S was revealed last week at the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show.

According to Adrian Hallmark, Global Brand Director, Jaguar, said:”Sporting character is evident in all Jaguar saloons. In the XFR-S that character has been amplified, the result being a truly engaging car with a combination of technical innovation, assertive design and staggering performance that will satisfy the most demanding of drivers.”

The power for the Jaguar XFR-S comes from a monstrous 5.0 litre V8 with a power and torque output of 405kW and 680Nm, up about 29kW and 55NM more than the XFR, with apparently no impact on fuel consumption or emissions when compared to the XFR.

The 0 to 100km/h acceleration is slated as taking 4.6 seconds, with the maximum speed limited to 300k m/h.

The 5.0 litre V8 fitted on the Jaguar XFR-S is mated to and eight speed transmission with ‘Quickshift’ functionality which enables optimal acceleration throughout the speed and rev ranges.

Other than the engine upgrade, the Jaguar XFR-S has also received some exterior changes to the body to aid airflow. At the front these include the deeper front bumper with its larger lower air intakes, vertical vanes and carbon fibre front splitter.

On the side the XFR-S also gets deeper sills and unique ‘aero-blades,’ whilst at the back the deeper rear bumper sides while a carbon fibre rear diffuser between the signature quad tailpipes extends underneath the rear of the XFR-S to reduce lift. The rear bootlid mounted spoiler also aid to reduce lift.

The ride of the Jaguar XFR-S has also been improved by the use of the unique 20” lightweight forged alloy ‘Varuna’ wheels which are wider front and rear and are shod with specially developed Pirelli rubber, giving the XFR-S a more muscular stance and increasing its grip and stability. Allied to this are extensive suspension revisions which serve to increase lateral suspension stiffness by 30% for greater steering precision and responsiveness.
