The 2011 Jaguar XKR-S, which was launched at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show, is a better version than the one launched three years ago.
As promised the all-new 2011 version has been introduced and is as powerful and looks more intimidating than its predecessor.
What this does is increase the appeal of the XK line of Jaguar.

Upgrades were made on the exteriors from top to bottom including a large lower air intake and front corners with sweeping scoops. The engine was also upgraded and can now produce 542 hp from the previous 510 hp. Torque also improved by 40 lb-feet from 461 to 501 lb-feet. This was boosted by the souped up direct-injection 5-liter V8 engine. Unique suspension modifications were also made on both ends and the stability system was recalibrated for more high speed driving safety.
The XKR-S embodies Jaguar’s long-standing tradition of duality of purpose - GT luxury with awesome performance. Billed as the quickest Jaguar ever, it takes only 4.2 seconds to speed from 0 to 60 mph and 8.6 seconds to dispose of 100 mph from rest. With a top speed of 186 mph (300 kph), the XKR-S is also very agile, responsive and driver-friendly.
The strong but lightweight aluminum frame is engineered to maximize both handling efficiency and economy. No other car in its class can emit less than 300 g/km C02.
