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 beast. 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. Specs Engine: 5.0-litre supercharged V8 Power: 550bhp Torque: 502lb ft 0-60mph: 4.2seconds Top speed: 186mph Written/Presented: Alex Goy Shot/Edited: Nick Wilkinson

On this episode of Ignition, Jonny Lieberman has a go with perhaps the most capable grand touring car on the market, the new Porsche 911 turbo S. Combining 560 horsepower, upwards of 553 lb-ft of torque and several cows' worth of leather. Embarking on a cross continental trip in the dead of winter, Jonny begins in frosty Georgia and heads all the way back to Motor Trend's headquarters in Southern California. Along the way he traverses ten States, meets up with friends like Randy Pobst and John Hennessey, examines why Americans are so found of road trips and just generally enjoys the hell out of one of the quickest production cars on earth, the mighty 911 turbo S.

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 155mph. Press info: 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!
