2012 Jaguar XKR-S Review, Specs and Pictures. After appearances at the geneva motor in 2011, Jaguar XKR-S does have an extreme passion and beauty as a fast car. Machines that use a 5.0-liter supercharged AJ-V8 gives a satisfactory result. Then the calibration is more extensive for the power delivery and smooth performance. And also the exhaust is encouraging and inspiring enthusiasm for the driver with tremendous feedback.
Appearances jaguar is fun both in terms of interior and exterior. color is shiny and gives the art in this car racing. Improved aerodynamics and a host of other features that complement.
Now further styling changes keep the XKR-S at the forefront of modern sports car design. Slimmer, LED headlights, more compact main air intake and vertical side power vent all contribute to a more purposeful front-end appearance. At the rear of the car the famous Jaguar ‘Leaper’ now takes pride of place in the centre of the bootlid.
The surfeit of power produced by this system meant that it was a relatively simple matter to liberate an extra 40PS and 55Nm over the standard XKR. Remapping the engine’s fuelling characteristics and increasing exhaust gas flow through the use of an active exhaust system has lifted total output of the 5.0-litre V8 is now 550PS and 680Nm, making it the most powerful Jaguar road engine ever made and allowing the Jaguar XKR-S to hit 60mph in 4.2 seconds and breach the magical 300kph barrier with ease.
The interior of the Jaguar XKR-S has been subtly refreshed with a host of new trim materials including ebony soft-feel paint for the switches and gloss black finish to the centre console. The model will also be exclusively available with a Dark Linear Aluminium finish as an option to the wood veneers.
A new leather-wrapped, multi-function steering wheel has also been added, providing a beautiful, tactile interface between car and driver as do the bright, Jaguar-embossed, stainless steel pedals.
