A little over 18 months after the XKR-S was launched, it’s time for the XF to seize its moment in the spotlight. Powered by the same 542bhp supercharged AJ-V8 5.0-litre engine, the XFR-S will take the fight to BMW’s M5, which until now has been the most powerful executive saloon on sale.
Have you ever wondered how a speedboat would look if it was designed to the same philosophy as Jaguar’s range of cars? Well, Design Director Ian Callum did and has turned his vision into the ‘Concept Speedboat’ to mark the launch of Jaguar’s new XF Sportbrake.
With Audi, BMW, Lexus and Aston Martin competing for the limelight, you’d be forgiven for not realising that another premium brand – Jaguar, has a story to tell about last weekend’s Nurburgring 24 Hour race.
