The XKR-S exploits the KX's strong but lightweight aluminum body together with its uprated supercharged AJ-V8 Gen III R direct-injection engine mated to a VCT which can accelerate the car from 0-100km/h in just 4.2 seconds and produce amazing exhaust notes at the same time, thanks to its 'Performance active exhaust system'.

The interior of the XKR-S has been refreshed with a host of new trim materials including ebony soft-peel paint for switches and gloss black finish to the center console. New performance front seats are exclusive to the XKR-S and helps hold the driver and passenger securely and comfortably during high speed cornering.
