The 2011 Geneva Motor Show is turning out to be a pretty huge deal. At the show, Jaguar will show the new Jaguar XKR-S with a higher output supercharged V8 engine, a revised suspension and a new aerodynamically-driven design.

“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.”

Power for the Jaguar XKR-S comes from a 5.0L supercharged V8 making 550-hp with a maximum torque of 502 lb-ft of torque. 0 to 60 mph comes in 4.2 seconds with a top speed of 186 mph.
