2010 Jaguar XF-R Spotted Testing In Death Valley, Sporting Vantage…

When we last checked in with the 2010 Jaguar XF-R it looked as though there might be a powerful 5.0-liter V8 lurking under the hood. We've seen a lot of the XF-R, as seen below, but the actual motivation has been a point of contention.
