As announced earlier, the new Jaguar XFR-S made its dynamic UK debut at the Goodwood Hill in the company of a couple of classic Jags and with 1988 Le Mans 24hr race winner Andy Wallace at the wheel. Jaguar’s fastest ever sports saloon was dressed in an Italian Racing Red for this occasion.
Also present were a 1962 Jaguar Mk. II prepared by Jaguar Heritage Racing, and a 1954 ‘short nose’ Jaguar D-Type – chassis No.1. They will be joined by Jaguar’s lineup of modern high performance models at the Goodwood FEstival of Speed.
The £79,995 XFR-S goes from zero to 60mph in just 4.4 seconds (0-100km/h in 4.6 seconds), and up to the electronically limited top speed of 186mph (300km/h), courtesy of a 5.0-liter supercharged V8 engine that makes 550PS and 680Nm. The only problem with this car is the styling kit with that rear wing. It’s nice, but it’s not Jaguarish at all.
