Jaguar XFR-S On the Lam, Headed For Production
Jaguar won't confirm it, but after the XKR-S, a 550-horsepower sedan should make easy money.
The "regular" XFR (pictured here) already shares the same 5.0-liter, 510-horsepower V8 as the XKR, so it shouldn't be hard to squeeze another 40 horsepower under the sedan's curved hood. Autocar, which has photographs of the alleged sedan testing in the English Midlands, says it'll be ready for a November launch at the Los Angeles Auto Show. Jaguar North America wouldn't comment on the report, but there's almost nothing more power, stiffer springs, blacked-out rims and limited production can't do to increase profits. (Especially more power.)
Whatever auto show the XFR-S heads to first, we're expecting it to cost no less than $100,000, a heady $18K above the XFR, and be available only by special order, as with the current XKR-S. That's proper, alright.
