Brand's 'most potent' production car--ever
Feb 23, 2011

Jaguar Cars has loaded its latest announcement with superlatives as it revealed that the all-new XKR-S will be launched at the Geneva International Motor Show.

According to the British luxury car brand, the Jaguar XKR-S is its "most potent series production car ever" with its supercharged V8 engine, overhauled suspension and aerodynamic design.

"The XKR-S is the ultimate expression of Jaguar's long held duality of purpose: GT luxury with incredible performance," Jaguar said in a statement.

The XKR-S produces 544hp and 680Nm of torque, and is capable of reaching a top speed of 300kph.

"Its performance credentials speak for themselves: 0-60mph takes 4.2 seconds, with 0-100mph dismissed in just 8.6 seconds," Jaguar said.

The company added that the Jaguar XKR-S is not just the "most agile, responsive and driver vehicle" in its lineup, it is also "the only car in its class that emits less than 300g/km" of carbon dioxide.

"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."
