Jaguar XKR-S - XCAR
The Jaguar XKR-S is an odd creature. Its basis, the Jaguar XKR, is a
refined Ian Callum design. A stately beast that can transport its occupants
with speed and style to any destination they desire. The XKR-S is more than
that. It takes its style from the world's race tracks rather than their
galleries. It borrows its performance from ballistic missiles, rather than
cross country runners.
It's a Jaguar with rabies, a wildcat with a glint in its eye that begs you
to hop in and see how long you can hold on for. And it's utterly stunning
to play with.
You see, Jaguar didn't only give it more power et al, it created a feral
When you walk up to the XKR-S the first thing that crosses your mind it how
utterly mad it looks -- wings and vents seemingly spattered all over its
precious shell leer at you. That, however, is your warning. Slip yourself
inside and all the clues to its true nature are there before you -- flags,
carbon fibre, a growling cat in the centre of the 'wheel...
Pressing the start button is a treat -- the sonorous 5.0-litre V8 stirs to
life with enough energy to scare bird from trees. The noise the XKR-S makes
is akin to nothing I've heard -- it's mechanical, loud, unrelenting and...
brilliant. It's everything you think a 1950s race car sounds like. And a
bit more, too.
Alongside the noise is the power: 550bhp, 502lb ft, 0-62mph in 4.2secs and
a 186mph top speed. That's pretty rapid by anyone's standards. All that
power means the Jag's acceleration is unrelenting. The moment your foot
hits the carpet your view beings to blur into nothing and your hearing is
consumed by the engine's visceral rasp. It's quite a thing to experience.
But one that needs to be experienced in certain conditions.
In the dry the XKR-S is the perfect car. It'll grip quite happily and step
its bum out if you ask it to. In the wet you are given the illusion of
control. It simply can't put its power down in any meaningful way and the
slightest bit of power can cause its rear to want to meet its front.
That aside -- I love it. It's a Jaguar I'd keep for the track, something to
bring out and scare the big boys. It's damn near perfect, if a little mad.
Engine: 5.0-litre supercharged V8

2015 Jaguar XE, first presentation
2015 Jaguar XE, first presentation
London, 8th September, 2014 - The Jaguar XE has been revealed to the world
during a star-studded event held at Earl’s Court, London.
A true driver’s car, the rear-drive Jaguar XE redefines the concept of
the sports saloon thanks to its advanced lightweight construction,
streamlined styling, luxurious interior, and outstanding ride and handling.
The XE goes on sale in 2015, with the high-performance S model at the top
of the range.
The XE S rewards drivers with the responsiveness and refinement of its
supercharged 3.0-litre V6. Generating 340PS and 450Nm of torque, this
high-revving engine is linked to an eight-speed automatic transmission with
paddle shift controls, giving the driver immediate access to the
vehicle’s incredible reserves of power. Accelerating to 0-60mph in just
4.9 seconds, the XE S has an electronically-limited maximum speed of
High-efficiency 2.0-litre Ingenium diesel: 75mpg, 99g/km CO2
Aluminium-intensive monocoque – the first in the mid-size segment
Exhilarating performance, precise handling, supple ride
Dynamic design, classic rear-drive stance
Lightest and stiffest Jaguar saloon yet
Most aerodynamic Jaguar ever made: Cd 0.26
Intuitive new InControl infotainment system
Intelligent Active Safety technologies to support the driver
Low cost of ownership: highly competitive fuel economy, emissions,
insurance ratings, service intervals and residual values
Indicative pricing for the XE range: from £27,000
The first Ingenium engines to come off the line are 2.0-litre four-cylinder
diesels. Clean combustion, variable Exhaust valve timing and sophisticated Exhaust gas aftertreatment ensure Euro 6
compliance and take the XE’s CO2 emissions as low as 99g/km in the case
of the 163PS/380Nm variant*. More powerful versions will be available too,
combining exceptional fuel economy and even greater responsiveness.
The 2.0-litre turbocharged direct
injection petrol engines are powerful and refined and generate strong
torque from low speeds, ensuring excellent launch performance and mid-range
response. Two ratings will be available in the XE, and both will be offered
with a lighter version of the ZF 8HP automatic used in the rest of the
Jaguar range: this benchmark eight-speed transmission is controlled using
Jaguar’s unique rotary shift selector. Ingenium diesels will also be
available with a highly efficient six-speed manual – low viscosity oil
and pseudo dry-sump lubrication cut parasitic losses. All of the XE’s
transmissions are characterised by exceptionally smooth, quiet shifts.
The XE is the first car in the world to be equipped with All Surface
Progress Control (ASPC). This all-new system, developed with the input of
decades of Jaguar Land Rover experience in off-road traction systems, works
like a low-speed cruise control. ASPC functions between 3.6km/h and 30km/h:
by precisely controlling the brake system and the powertrain it delivers
optimum traction in the most slippery conditions without skidding and
without the driver using the pedals.
Jaguar is one of the first manufacturers in the segment to use stereo
camera technology. This state-of-the-art sensor is the ‘eyes’ of the
XE’s autonomous emergency braking system, providing highly accurate
measurements of speed and distance of objects ahead, and can initiate full
braking to avoid or mitigate a collision.
The stereo camera performs traffic sign recognition and lane departure
warning functions too. The XE also offers systems such as adaptive cruise
control, closing vehicle sensing, blind spot monitoring, semi-automated
parallel and bay parking, and reverse traffic detection.Full details of the
entire XE range will be announced at the Paris Motorshow in October.
2015 Aston Martin V12 Vantage S vs 2014 Jaguar XKR-S GT! Head 2 Head Ep. 48
On this episode of Head 2 Head, Carlos Lago pits two great Britons against
each other: the Aston Martin V12 Vantage S and the Jaguar XKR-S GT. The
similarities between these two run deep. Base price and power are similar,
and both have carbon ceramic brakes, adjustable dampers, and Pirelli P Zero
Corsas. The factories responsible are 37 miles from one another; it's easy
to imagine the engineering groups meet for warm beer -- or tea. Which one
deserves the bragging rights? This week, we find out!
Head 2 Head appears every other Wednesday on the Motor Trend channel.
