xkrs7JAGUAR’S most potent sports car ever, the all-new XKR-S, is expected to cost £97,000 and will be available from September.

Jaguar says the all-new model ‘will significantly broaden the appeal of the XK range, offering enthusiastic drivers a compelling, fresh choice in the luxury GT class.’

The new car features an uprated supercharged V8 engine, overhauled suspension and a new ‘aerodynamically-driven’ design. It also produces 542bhp which is enough to get the car to 186mph and emits less than 300g/km CO2.

‘The XKR-S is a bold and exciting new model for Jaguar,’ said Adrian Hallmark, Jaguar’s new global brand director. ‘We expect to attract both loyal and new Jaguar driving enthusiasts who still want the comfort, opulence and class only a Jaguar can offer, combined with inspirational performance.’
