JAGUAR XFR WOWS THE CROWDS AT CARFEST
.XFR wows the crowds with a live action chase at CarFest
28 August 2012: Jaguar XFR played a starring role in the CarFest motoring event over the August Bank Holiday weekend, taking part in a crowd-pleasing 'live action' chase sequence.
The 510bhp XFR saloon went head to head with a Ford Focus ST, recreating a high-octane scene from the much-anticipated new movie The Sweeney. The two vehicles were driven by professional stunt drivers from renowned company Paul Swift Precision Driving. Starring Ray Winstone and Ben Drew (aka musician Plan B), the film is released in UK cinemas on 12 September.
The supercharged XFR is the most dynamic and exhilarating expression of Jaguar sporting luxury. Powered by a 5.0-litre V8 petrol engine, it can sprint to 60mph from a standing start in 4.7 seconds and has an electronically limited top speed of 155mph.
CarFest is a brand new motoring event for enthusiasts, and is the brainchild of DJ and broadcaster Chris Evans. It was staged at Laverstoke Park Farm, an estate in Overton, Hampshire, owned by ex-Formula 1 champion Jody Scheckter.
The XFR and other Jaguar cars were on show throughout the two-day event, which was attended by 15,000 petrolheads. The vehicles will also be present at CarFest North, to be staged at Cholmondeley Castle, Cheshire on 8-9 September 2012.

2012 Jaguar XFR Drive & Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) Are you looking for a very fast premium and
sporty luxury car but the Cadillac CTS-V just seems too plain Jane, while
the BMW M5 is an overdone and oversold German technology sedan. Perhaps you
should check out this sleek and sexy beast...the Jaguar XFR. In our opinion
this is one of the the sexiest and most refined luxury sedans that you can
purchase today. Did we mention that it has a supercharged V8 under the hood
that put out a face crunching 510 horsepower. With 0-60 MPH
time approaching 4 seconds this Jaguar will eat up any and all mid-sized
luxury sedans that don't have an M, S, V or AMG in their name and yes we
do mean BMW, Audi, Cadillac and Mercedes. And unlike all of those luxury
brands the Jaguar is perhaps the only one that won't rattle your teeth on
expansion joints and rail road crossing. It has that unique Jaguar ability
to combine a supple ride with impeccable road feel and razor sharp

yourself! Throughout the video, I will highlight key styling and unique
differences about the vehicle, any available options, and of course it
would not be an enthusiast car video without the good ole engine portion
with rev and Exhaust note with
interior and exterior perspectives. A thorough tour/review of this car
designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.
