Spyshots: Jaguar XFR-S Production Car!

A brand new aluminum sportscar, an aluminum-bodied luxury limosine, new supercarged V6s, AWD for the American customers, as well as fresh styling for 2013 - Jaguar has all these things. But what about a rival for the BMW M5. No, not any more!

The game has moved on from the E60 M5, and thanks to two turbochargers, the latest generation of the Germans super-saloon has 560 hp. So its old rival, the XFR, is no longer a match for it.

That is until this, the XFR-S, arrives on the scene. These are the very first spyshots which show a full production XFR-S with camo, undergoing testing on the Nurburgring. Until now, the test mules were XFR, but the production car seems to have much revised styling.

The whole front bumper has been changed, with much different air intakes, somewhat resembling those on an M5 or Audi RS6. Down the side, you’ll notice ground effects side skirts that reduce the air under the car, while at the rear there’s a small spoiler added to the top of the trunk and a new diffuser.

The powerful look is accompanied by a powerful engine, as the 5.0-liter supercharged V8 will most likely produce the same 550 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 681 Nm (502 lb-ft) of peak torque. Expect 0 to 100 km/h to go by in 4.6 seconds, and a de-restricted top speed somewhere north of 180 mph (290 km/h).

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.
