Jaguar XFR-S Sportbrake Rendering

Audi has just unveiled the RS6 Avant for the 2013 model year. It’s powered by a brand new 4-liter twin-turbo V8 which produces 560PS and gets it to 100 km/h in an amazing 3.9 seconds. Meanwhile, Mercedes has the mental CLS 63 AMG Shooting Brake and the existing E63 AMG to rely on, while BMW doesn’t make a real M5 wagon any more, but it does offer plenty of performance with the M550d, which comes standard with all-wheel drive.
But Jaguar also knows a thing or two about making cool estate cars. They’ve already launched the XF Sportbrake and their X-Type had all-wheel drive before it was cool.

So, we wondered what it would be like if Jaguar made a really fast wagon. This is a rendering of what the Sportbbrake would look like if it needed to blitz the Nurburgring. It’s quite obviously based on the recently unveiled XFR-S super sports saloon, which packs 550 PS instead of the usual 510 PS.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
