When he announced his arrival at the New York International Auto Show Jaguar said that there would expose the new XJR, but wasn’t mention the second car. Besides sports sedan XJR, Jaguar has prepared another premiere for this year’s Motor Show. It’s XKR GT-S, which will be produced in an exclusive run of only 30 pieces, and all of 30 pieces are intended for the North American market.
It is used as the XKR-S, which means that the facility cares 5.0 liter V8 engine with a compressor that has 550KS and 680 Nm, in combination with the six-speed automatic transmission.
XKR-S GT stands out new aero body kit which include new front spoiler, wheel arch extensions, a rear spoiler with carbon fiber and rear diffuser. The car also boasts the bonnet with additional air vents, new sports springs, the 52 mm wider front rut, carbon ceramic brakes, improved aerodynamics, as well as 20-inch alloy wheels with Pirelli Corsa tires.
Top speed is limited to 170mph, while its acceleration from 0 to 60 mph is 3.9 seconds. Definitely another positive surprise from the jaguar, but customers in Europe will be certainly disappointed.
Although Jaguar officially launched the car at the New York Auto Show, it is not scheduled to go on sale until the summer, when it is expected to cost $174,895.
