Jaguar XKR-S

Jaguar’s punchiest attempt thus far to convince us that the XK can be a proper sports car as well as an excellent GT. The rigid aluminium shell provides a decent basis for a stiffer, sharper chassis set-up whilst the 5-litre supercharged V8 is ramped up to the tune of an extra 39bhp and a fruitier, ‘My First NASCAR’ soundtrack.
