Rumours are circulating regarding a possible Jaguar XFR-S. The principle will be the same as that applied to the Jaguar XKR-S, less weight, more power and better handling. Jaguar could release this model as early as the Paris Motor Show in September. We’ve heard these rumours before and now they look closer to reality!
No exact details are known at this stage, but expect a series of upgrade to the chassis, styling, exhaust and engine performance. The output of the 5.0 liter supercharged V8 should get up to around 550bhp and 680Nm of torque. The upgrades should place the Jaguar XFR-S closer to the new BMW M5 and Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG in terms of performance.
We expect Jaguar to replace the Jaguar XF by 2014. The XFR-S will help keep the model range desirable until that car is ready. We expect Jaguar to keep offering the XFR alongside the XFR-S. Price projections put the range topping model at £70,000 which is 88,000 euros at today’s exchange rate.
