To meet the requirement, the fastest Jaguar to position on the market for the XJ 220 essential eras of the 90s, put the Jaguar XKR-strategists on a special tuning. The result: the XKR-S impressed now with a top speed of 280 km / h - and mind you this is electronically limited ! The premium coupe is powered by a powerful Jaguar V8 engine with 4.8 liter displacement that comes to a peak torque of 560 Newton meters, thanks to supercharging and now develops 416 hp. So fired, accelerating the cat in 5.2 seconds from 0 to 100 km / h, which is but at the same time due to the sporty designed six-speed automatic: Thanks to the XKR-shift paddles on the steering wheel can be installed within the corridors of fraction of a second as well switch manually. Compared with the normal 2008 Jaguar XKR also received special modifications to the suspension springs, dampers and stabilizers. The tuning of the electronically controlled suspension CATS (Computer Active Technology Suspension) was significantly altered by the Jaguar engineers so that the XKR-S is still controllable in the border area. Largely untouched, however, remained the XKR-shapely body, which only received an aerodynamic fine-tuning. To manifest the exclusive status of the Jaguar XKR-S, almost the entire interior was lined with leather.
