We believe this Jaguar XFR is actually a mule for the XFR-S version of the XF. It’s still missing the special body parts that the XFR-S probably will have, but the track looks slightly wider and it’s sporting the same wheels as the XKR-S already. Other things that make us suspicious are the fact that items testing together with the XKR-S Convertible prototype and the sound it produces. There are plenty of normal XFR driving around here at Jaguars test center close to the Nurburgring, and no one is even close to the lovely sound this one serves us.
The throttle response is also very quick when the driver floors it and the only explanation should be that the 550 horsepower strong engine from the XKR-S has been planted under the hood of this XF.
Adrian Hallmark, Jaguars global brand director, has confirmed that Jaguar are working on a project to transfer the XKR-S upgrades to the XFR as well. It seems like the war is on for family supercars like the Audi RS6, the BMW M5 and the Mercedes E63 AMG with Jaguar knocking on the door to the club.
