First shown at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November last year, the XFR-S will be joined at the Goodwood Festival of Speed press day by heroes of Jaguar’s sporting past.
A 1962 Jaguar Mk II, prepared by Jaguar Heritage Racing, and a 1954 ‘short-nose’ Jaguar D-Type - chassis No.1 and itself a development prototype - was displayed by the Jaguar Heritage Trust in front of the Goodwood House.
The new XFR-S is capable of sprinting from zero to 100km/h in just 4.6 seconds and up to an electronically limited top speed of 300km/h. The XFR-S builds on the performance of the acclaimed XFR to create an even more focused product. With an increase of 29kW and 55Nm over the XFR in power and torque from its 5.0-litre supercharged V8 engine, the XFR-S produces an astonishing 404kW and 680Nm, yet with with no impact on fuel consumption or Co2 emissions.
