New 2012 Jaguar XKR: What Lamborghini Wanted to Be
Most don't realize that the hypercars from Lamborghini weren't intended to
happen. Ferruccio Lamborghini wanted a powerful Grand Tourer, not a
streetable racing car. Jaguar's 2012 XKR now fits that category in Grand
street racing with Jaguar xkr
Ein Jaguar xkr mit 400PS und ein Opel Corsa mit 70Ps lieferten sich ein
packendes Duell auf der Straße, jedoch unerwartet gewann die böse Katze
mit einem leichten Vorsprung.

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
Torque: 502lb ft
Top speed: 186mph
