Jaguar XKR-S

Recently, Jaguar released the fastest pussy cat they have ever built. Known as the Jaguar XKR-S, the model is powered by 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.

According to insiders, Jaguar is also planning a soft-top convertible version of the XKR-S. Since”the car was designed as a convertible.” the aluminium structure means it won’t need additional bracing to deal with the increase in power, he said.

The 550-hp 5.0 liter supercharged V8 will also make its way into the XF, the insider said. That will give the soon to be known XFR-S the ability to go from 0 to 60 mph in close to 4 seconds with a top speed of 180 mph.
