With the Geneva Show 2008, it a pleasure to see so many sultry beauties waiting to bare all! One of them that caught my fancy is the Jaguar XKR-S. Supposed to be the fastest Jaguar at 174mph, the limited-edition version of the supercharged XKR is also the fastest XK ever. Powered with a 4.2 liter V8 and six-speed automatic transmission, it accelerates from 0-60mph in 4.9 seconds only. This XKR-S has different springs and shocks that lower the ride height my 0.4 inches, thicker anti-roll bars, a quicker steering rack and a slipperier exterior. The manufacturers’ Computer Active Technology Suspension (CATS) is also recalibrated.
The faster coupe prances on lightweight 20-inch wheels hiding Alcon R brakes which are optional on the XKR. It sports a full leather interior, a 525 Watt B&W sound system and various XKR-S badged trim pieces. The distinctive exterior features a unique front spoiler, rear fascia and spoiler and side skirts, as well as a small XKR-S badge. Available in both left and right hand drive, only 200 of this Ultimate Black Jaguar XKR-S will hit the roads of Europe only.
