2014 Jaguar XJR: This Is It

The Jaguar XJR went away with the last generation, leaving us with the range topping "Supersport." But we always new there was a chance for more classy power. And here it is: The XJR is back.

The new XJR will debut in New York next week with a supercharged V8 good for 550 horsepower of classy and understated British gentleman-ness.

That means it has the same engine as the Jag XKR-S, an engine with a note that can cause all of Switzerland to wave the white flag at once.

We'll see the car in NY next week.
