The quickest production XK to date, it promises high speed performance and excellent handling combined within a hand-crafted and luxurious package. Drivers can expect 0-60 to come up in just 5 seconds, and a top speed of 280 kph- making it the fastest Jaguar since the XJ220 supercar. The engine breathes out through an active exhaust system and gears are swapped by a six-speed automatic with sequential shifting courtesy of shift-paddles on the steering wheel.
A high performance braking system helps to harness the power, with Alcon R calipers clamping their 6-pistons down on 400 millimeter front brake discs. Jaguar has also installed a Computer Active Technology Suspension system (CATS) for a deep and strong grip on the road.
Exterior styling cues help the ultra-performance model stand apart from the standard car, with various interior upgrades and a high performance audio system working towards the same goal.
Only 200 of the XKR-S model will be produced, all of which will be sold in Europe.
