Jaguar has revealed its new supercharged sports car - the Jaguar XKR.
Like the XK model, the new supercharged XKR makes intelligent use of practical, modern technology such as an industry-leading aluminium monocoque structure that results in a light and yet very stiff body. An uprated 420bhp (SAE) supercharged V8 engine and calibration of a six-speed automatic transmission deliver accessible, real-world, high performance that makes the XKR an impressive sporting GT.
The XKR's powerful statement of intent is reinforced by sporting styling cues such as an enhanced front bumper, bonnet louvres and aluminium-finish grilles and side power vents. Unique 19 and 20-inch alloy wheel designs and a quad-exhaust system add to the overall presence.
"The new supercharged XKR captures perfectly the essence of what makes a Jaguar XK so special," commented Bibiana Boerio, Jaguar Cars' managing director. "It is a perfect balance of refined Grand Tourer and serious performance sports car, that delivers a truly rewarding and exhilarating driving experience."
