Meet the Jaguar XKR-S GT – This is the upgraded version of the XKR-S. The Jaguar XKR-S GT is a street-legal high-performance limited edition track ready car, is powered by Jaguar’s proven 550PS, 680Nm supercharged 5.0-litre V8 engine that is capable of reaching 0-60mph in 3.9 seconds. Developed by Jag’s in-house ETO special product division, the XKR-S GT gets aerodynamic elements, including a carbon-fiber front splitter, extended wheel arch spats, an elevated rear wing, a rear diffuser and an aluminum undertray. Other improvements include bespoke suspensions and dampers, completely adaptive to road conditions and drive.
“The XKR-S GT is the most extreme iteration of the Jaguar R Brand’s performance focus. Utilising race-car derived technology, all-aluminium construction and an uncompromised approach to aerodynamic efficiency, the result is a car as capable on the track as it is exhilarating on the road.” – Adrian Hallmark, Global Brand Director, Jaguar.
The 2014 Jaguar XKR-S GT is limited to just 30 units in North America (25 in the United States, five in Canada) and goes on sale this August at a starting price of $174,000.
