New Jaguar XKR-S GT debut

Jaguar XKR-S GT

The XKR-S GT has been developed by Jaguar’s ETO division to be the ultimate track-focused but road-going iteration of the XK coupe. Extensive aerodynamic and suspension changes, as well as the addition of carbon ceramic brakes, have combined to give the XKR-S GT race-car inspired connected feel and braking performance. Initial production will be limited to just 30 cars for the North American market.

Jaguar XKR-S GT is integrated with 5.0-litre supercharged V8 engine, delivers 550PSĀ  of power and 680Nm of torque, with a six-speed automatic transmission and active electronic differential. Combined with the aerodynamic and suspension changes, plus revisions to the traction control system’s calibration, the result in straight-line terms is a 0-60mph time of 3.9 seconds. Electronically limited top speed is 186mph.

It is available in Polaris White with unique graphics and Jaguar R-S GT script on its louvred bonnet. The XKR-S GT features a carbon-fibre front splitter of race-car wrap-around type; extending forward by 60mm, it starts the optimisation of airflow around, over and underneath the car. Aggressive carbon-fibre twin dive-planes and wheelarch extensions further the efficiency of airflow around the car, while below the addition of an optimised aluminium front valance serves to smooth airflow under the car as well as enhancing engine and brake cooling performance.
