As the fastest production XK to date, it delivers high speed, dynamic excellence and crafted luxury.
It will be limited to 200 cars available only in Europe, in both right-hand and left-hand drive.
The XKR-S is capable of 0-100km/h in 4.9 seconds and has a maximum speed, electronically limited, of 280km/h making it the fastest Jaguar since the XJ220 supercar.
Revised suspension with bespoke springs, dampers, anti-roll bar and recalibrated Computer Active Technology Suspension further improve the XKR's ride and handling.
Exterior styling features revised front air-splitter and side sill-extensions, revised rear spoiler and rear bumper with unique diffuser panel and unique 20” lightweight Vortex alloy wheels
It has an Alcon R Performance braking system with red monobloc six-piston calipers and 400mm brake discs at the front, 350mm at the rear
It comes with a six-speed automatic transmission with ultra-quick manual gear shifts in milliseconds, using steering-wheel-mounted paddles.
The Active Exhaust System ensures refinement at cruising speed but purposeful V8 roar under hard acceleration.
The luxury sports interior features full soft-grain leather with twin-needle contrast stitching, adjustable seat bolsters, Piano Black veneer, Charcoal Alston luxury headliner plus the XKR's comprehensive standard specification which includes a Bowers & Wilkins surround sound system, with 525W premium audio, featuring low distortion Kevlar mid-range speakers and aluminium dome speakers, designed and tuned specifically for the XK.
The limited edition coupe in Ultimate Black is identified by the unique XKR-S badge on the rear of the car.
The exterior of the XKR-S has been subtly enhanced to make it recognisably different without being overstated.
Another significant element in the revised handling package is that the ride height of the XKR-S has been reduced by 10mm compared with that of the XKR.
The full soft grain-leather trim is finished in Charcoal with Ivory twin-needle contrast stitching, with leather wrapping the seats, instrument panel top, centre console, inner door panels and rear side panels.
