Jaguar XFR-S is Closer to Production

The Jaguar XFR is one hot cat, and, if you asses it in isolation, it offers you everything you could possibly want from a go-fast sedan. However, it is not alone it the segment and its 510 hp are no longer able to face the competition coming from the 560 hp of the BMW M5 or the 557 hp of the Mercedes E63 AMG.

Jaguar isn’t just willing to sit around and let its super-saloon be devoured by the Germans, with the company now set to create a hotter XFR-S version. A Jaguar source told autocar that the company is willing to give the XFR the same treatment offered to the XKR-S, confirming previous rumors.

Thus, the supercharged 5.0-liter V8 should be boosted to 550 hp, while the rest of the tech bits will also be upgraded. In addition to that, the XFR-S will also get more aggressive styling that will allow it to easily be distinguished.
