The R model is the flagship of the XJ range from Jaguar, incorporating new chassis and aerodynamic developments that makes it the most focused, agile and responsive member of the range. It offers greater steering precision, higher level of control, high-speed stability as well as greater power and torque from it’s 5.0-liter supercharged V8. The suspension has been tuned and tested on race tracks like the Nurburgring and the Rockingham circuit in England. To achieve maximum benefit from it, the car is fitted with lightweight 30-inch Farallon alloy wheels and Pirelli tires measuring 265/35 front and 295/30 rear. Also, the high performance saloon has Adaptive Dynamics system to control vertical body movement, roll and pitch, and a high tuned active electronic differential. The designers wanted the car to flash it’s sportiness on the outside too, so it has chrome-rimmed intakes, front aero splitters, R spec side sills a bootlid-mounted spoiler and other subtle design modifications that reflect the changes from under the hood.
