Reports state that there is a hotter version of the Jaguar XKR in the works. The model, which will be based on the one-off Jaguar Goodwood Special XKR, will be powered by an uprated version of the 5.0L supercharged V8 making 523-hp and 516 lb-ft of torque. It will also feature a lowered suspension, 21-inch alloy wheels and tweaked exhaust.
“This is definitely not a level of performance anyone would have associated with the XKR before now,” Jaguar boss Mike O’Driscoll told PistonHeads.com.
O’Driscoll expects the hotter XKR to hit a top speed of over 186 mph. No 0-62 mph figures or other specs were given.
