Autocar is the first online platform to share their road test of the 2012 Jaguar XKR-S, the fastest Jaguar ever. The hardcore Jaguar XKR-S offers up a meaty 542bhp, plus a chassis that’s tweaked to encourage you to plant your right foot around corners. Jamie Corstorphine takes us around the brand new Jag and discusses the highlights of the British sports car.
The British sports car has an uprated supercharged AJ-V8 Gen III R direct-injection engine producing 550hp together with 680Nm of torque. The power enables a sprint from standstill to 100km/h in just 4.2 seconds.
