2014 Jaguar XFR-S: The Big Cat that's Quiet, Powerful & Loves to Drift! - Ignition Ep. 86
On this episode of Ignition, Carlos Lago gets behind the wheel of a Jaguar
XFR-S, an even more powerful and limited production version of the already
lively XFR. As competitor to the BMW M5, and also Jaguar's fastest Sedan,
the XFR-S is packed with a supercharged V-8 that produces 550-hp and 502
lb-ft of torque, and is also given an assortment of new exterior upgrades
that truly separates this cat from the rest of the pack. Given these traits
and its inherent tendency to drift, we wonder if Jaguar is on to something
with its more youthful approach to its cars.
Ignition appears every Monday on the Motor Trend youtube channel.

Jaguar XFR review
A cat with 510 hp and 625 nm, this is the new Jaguar XFR!

New Supercharged V6 Jaguar XF and XJ First Drive AWD Tech Demo and Review: 2013
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The newly revised Jaguar XF and XJ may look the
same for the 2013 model year but it's what under the skin that makes them
all new. First and foremost is a new super charged 3.0L that produced 340
the previous generation of both cars in the United States you can now have
your Jaguar with a V6. But perhaps what's more important to Jaguar is that
both cars now feed power to all four wheels instead of just the back two.
This means that Jaguar can directly compete with cars from other premium
brands like Audi, BMW and Mercedes-Benz. In this exclusive TFLcar video we
are hosted by Jaguar in snowy Quebec to see just how well the newest
awl-wheel-drive Jaguar handle the snow and freezing rain of the Great White
2011 Jaguar XJ L--Jaguar Elmhurst
The incredible new Jaguar XJ, in long-wheelbase L model form. A new
standard in supreme luxury. Presented by Chris Moran from AutoMedia.
Above all things, Jaguar desires to be different. That's why the new 2011
XJ flagship has the flamboyant lines of an Italian torpedo and the driving
manners of a German autobahn cruiser and is tuned for Buckingham Palace
fleet duty. Cultures collide in spectacular ways in this luxury limo.
The XJ is a cab-rearward design and is incredibly riveting to stare at as
it sits back on its haunches with as much cool as James Bond lighting a
Chesterfield. In black, with the big-dish 20-inch wheels, the car is
sinister enough to warrant its own RICO investigation.
Jaguar Cars managing director Mike O'Driscoll, who's peddled more than his
share of schlock over a 35-year career with the company, is smiling more
lately. He says the mission was to recapture the uniqueness of the original
1968 XJ but in a modern form. They looked at the class stalwarts—the
Mercedes-Benz S-class, the BMW 7-series, and the Audi A8—and the more
driver-oriented oddballs, including the Maserati Quattroporte and Porsche
Panamera, and decided to shoot for a middle ground. Passion—but with
typical British reserve.
If you focus on those front three-quarter shots, you'll wrongly dismiss the
2011 XJ as just an XF with a pituitary run amok. Skip down to the side and
rear profiles to capture the XJ's more exotic stance. The beltline is
pulled way up, the side glass is pinched narrow, and the flowing taffy
stretch of aluminum sheetmetal ends in a high, short trunk.
The C-pillars are clad in wonky glossy black panels that bridge the side
glass with the backlight. Styling head Ian Callum—who gave us all of our
current Jaguars and a few Aston Martins—demanded it and got his way. You
don't hear odes to the Jensen Interceptor very often, but Callum is
fascinated with the way that car's rear glass wrapped around the body sides
to isolate the roof. He wanted to create an unbroken black band around the
car's cranium, like the Lone Ranger's mask. On lighter colors the effect is
more pronounced—and a little forced, frankly—but it's definitely not
something Jaguar's competitors would ever do.
On sale now, this XJ arrives stateside with two wheelbases and three
engines, the latter shared with the smaller XF. The base short XJ with a
direct-injection 385-hp, 5.0-liter V-8 starts at $72,500. The XJ
Supercharged uses forced air to attain 470 hp and costs an additional
$15,000. Both engines are also available in a size-XL (extra long) version
that pulls the wheelbase out another 4.9 inches. The base XJL starts at
$79,500 and is expected to be the volume player in the U.S., with about
half the sales. The XJL Supercharged is $90,500. Finally, by special order
only, there's the XJ Supersport with 510 hp, thanks to revised engine maps
similar to those of the XFR. Price: $112,000 in short form, $115,000 with
the stretch. Europe also gets a tugboat-ready 3.0-liter turbo-diesel from Peugeot that is unfortunately
considered a bit too, uh, European for America.
Lately, the market's air has been pretty thin at the XJ's price point—the
company sold just 1161 of the big cats in the U.S. last year, 2452 in
2008—so you can't blame Jaguar for leaning on existing components where
possible. Unexpectedly, it's the Jaguar XFR that donates the most gear,
including its suspension, steering rack, and, in the Supersports, the
active electronic differential with few modifications.
The riveted and glue-bonded aluminum unibody shares DNA with the previous
XJ, but thanks to a learning curve and a change in priorities, there are
substantial changes. Besides the graceful sheetmetal, there are more cast
nodes in the new XJ's skeleton, helping to drive up torsional rigidity by a
claimed 11 percent, and the front subframe is now solidly mounted. In the
past, Jaguar used rubber isolation bushings, something it found only
negatively affected handling while supplying little isolation benefit.
The curb weights reflect aluminum's great promise: about 4000 to 4300
pounds, practically a trifle these days, especially for a car casting this
big a shadow.
If there are shared bits with other Jaguars, you won't find them without
pulling up the carpet. Besides the extravagant exterior, the cabin is a
fascinating departure for Jaguar. For one thing, unlike most previous XJs,
the space is huge, especially in the stretched models. Resembling a
California landslide, the dash seems to have sunk a few inches from the
windshield, with a band of the requisite burled wood filling in the gap and
reminding one of the prow of a handmade yacht. The dropped dash puts
everything lower, making the cabin more intimate and deemphasizing the
Jaguar XF in action
