While the latest-generation Jaguar XF may have only just been revealed, Virtuel-Car has already rendered a high-performance XFR-S variant of the luxurious BMW 5-Series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class rival.
Compared to the existing XF range, the XFR-S rendered features many of the components adopted by the previous XFR-S. With that in mind, it includes new badging, enlarged air intakes at the front, new side skirts as well as a large rear wing. Additionally, a quad exhaust pipe system has been adopted alongside a towering rear wing. When the new high-performance model launches, it is expected to adopt the SVR badge rather than R-S.
As for what we know, the all-new Jaguar XF gets a range of engines, starting with the 2.0-litre Ingenium diesel engines available with 163 PS and 380 Nm’s of torque or 180 PS and 430 Nm torque. Both are offered with six-speed manual and eight-speed automatic transmissions. The 3.0-litre V6 twin-turbo diesel is also available with 300 PS and a staggering 700 Nm of torque. The 3.0-litre V6 supercharged petrol engine is available too, rated at 380 PS and 450 Nm torque.
Steering is Electric Power Assisted Steering (EPAS) and advanced passive damper technology to improve economy and ride comfort is also featured. The Jaguar Configurable Dynamics system is also available to individually tailor the settings of the dampers, steering, engine and eight-speed automatic transmission. The new XF is also available with All-Surface Progress Control, Jaguar’s new system for safer low-speed driving in adverse conditions. It automatically manages the brakes and the throttle to deliver the best possible traction.
