New Jaguar spotted in LA THE new Jaguar XFR-S was unveiled at the Los Angeles Auto Show. Jaguar has called it “the fastest, most powerful and agile sports saloon Jaguar has ever built.” The second model in the R-S range, the XFR-S joins its XKR-S sibling in the exclusive 300Kph club and is a vivid expression of the company’s longstanding sports saloon lineage. Prices will start at €75,600. The XFR-S incorporates engineering features from both the XKR-S and the all-new F-Type two-seater sports car to create a driver-focused, agile and responsive experience. The XFR-S has been

developed by Jaguar Land Rover’s specialist ETO division, its bespoke powertrain, chassis and body enhancements enabling it to push the performance boundaries. Sport performance is provided by the 5.0-litre supercharged V8 petrol engine which now boasts 550PS and 680Nm. The increases have been achieved through revisions to the engine management system and optimisation of the flow of air both into and out of the engine, the company said. Airflow allows the engine to operate at peak efficiency and lets the car cleave the air cleanly and safely.
