Today is your lucky day. When you buy a ticket to one of our wildly popular exotic car racing experiences, you'll get personal seat time in this amazing supercar. Life is short. Just Drive.
Jaguar calls the XKR-S the company’s “most responsive, powerful, agile, and driver-focused production car.” It’s also the quickest ever. Stout claim, but the numbers back it up. This supercharged and direct-injected 5.0-liter beast huffs up a shocking 550 horsepower and 502 ft-lb of torque. Throttle response is instantaneous, and the aural accompaniment is habit-forming.
Watch as our friends at MotorTrend drive the new 2012 Jaguar XKR-S on a deserted mountain road in California.
