The embargo has been broken (by a couple of sites that couldn’t hold it in anymore) on the 2010 Jaguar XFR. That means we can now show you pictures and give you all the details on the powerful pussycat before its Detroit Auto Show debut this weekend.
The 2010 Jaguar XFR carries a powerful 510-hp 5.0L AJ-V8 GEN III engine that is fitted with a 6-generation Roots-type twin vortex (TVS) supercharger. Compared to the current range-topper, the supercharged 4.2L V8, power has been upped by 23 percent and torque has been increased by 12 percent.

A 6-speed transmission transfers all that power to the rear-wheels allowing the 2010 XFR to sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 4.7 seconds (0 to 62 mph in 4.9 secs) with a top speed that is electronically limited to 155 mph. The 2010 Jaguar XFR can go from 50 mph to 70 mph in just 1.9 seconds and can complete the quarter mile run in 13.1 seconds. Not many will worry about fuel-economy when purchasing the 2010 XFR – but if you are one of the few that care about what they pay at the pump, Jaguar says that the XFR will return a fuel-economy of 22.5 mpg UK (that’s 18.8 mpg in the U.S.).
Aside from the engine upgrade, the 2010 Jaguar XFR gets Active Differential Control and Adaptive Dynamics, an electronically controlled differential and suspension system that optimize traction, a faster steering ration and upgraded brakes.
How do you tell the XFR apart from the standard XF? Well, you can just take a look at the hood that has two large nostrils. Other changes include a larger lower girlle, larger air intakes, new side skirts, a new rear-bumper with dual-quad exhausts, new boot lip spoiler, 20-inch Nevis alloy wheels and of course the ‘R’ badge on the back. Inside, the 2010 XFR gets a dark mesh aluminum finish trim with 18×14-way adjustable sports seats with the ‘R’ logo, and red dial-pointers on the speedometer.
The 2010 Jaguar XFR will be offered in eight exterior colors including Ultimate Black, Indigo, Liquid Silver, Lunar Grey, Porcelain, Botanical Green, Kyanite Blue and Salsa. Sales will begin later this year. Stay tuned for pricing and availability details.
