New 500hp Jaguar XF-R - (Global)

July 14th, 2008
Previous - Next








The new Jaguar XF-R was caught in action at the Goodwood Festival via gtspirit.com. Minimal hype was made about the XF-R being displayed on the day and many people missed a glimpse of the new supercharged V8 model.

The XF-R is set to produce 500bhp from a 5.0L supercharged V8 which is also planned to be used in the Range Rover and Range Rover Sport in 2009. Larger 20" inch sports wheels with upgraded brakes and a tuned suspension setup will provide a sportier feel for the XF-R.

Aesthetic updates include a matt black finish grill and wheel rim combination and also a new front hood with twin air vents and muscle car bulge.

The price tag should be set to undercut the competitors.
