For 2012, Jaguar added 40 horsepower to the XKR to create the XKR-S, the most powerful production Jaguar ever.
But don't tell the crack team at MotorWeek that, because they say it's the fastest Jaguar ever made... Which is true if you ignore the fact that the XJ220 is faster in every single measurable way.
Still, a 4.3 second 0-60 run at their local drag way in cold temperatures isn't slow by any standards. It also looks mean in black, although the red brake calipers keep it from being the perfect ride for the Dark Knight.
So how does it do at Roebling Road Raceway, the track that MotorWeek goes to so much that they seem to own stock in it? As John Davis says "High speed turns? Oh yeah, this Jag's got an app for that!"
Couldn't have said it better myself!
Now stop reading this and get into the nitty gritty about this little kitty that likes to purr purr purr.
