Jaguar series production car gains entry to the exclusive 300km/h club

Making its debut at the Geneva Motor Show 2011, is the Jaguar XKR-S. The latest version of Jaguar's revered sports car is the most extreme expression yet of Jaguar's passion for building beautiful, fast cars.

For the first time with a series production car, Jaguar gains entry to the exclusive '300 km/h club' thanks to the effortless performance of the supercharged 5.0-liter AJ-V8 engine. A revised fueling map means the direct-injection powerplant now produces 550PS and 680Nm of torque. Extensive recalibration has ensured that power delivery and performance are seamless, contributing to a 0-60 mph time of 4.2 seconds. The Performance active exhaust encourages and rewards the enthusiastic driver with dramatic, motorsport-inspired aural feedback.
