This is a big week for Jaguar and Land Rover. The new XJR will debut tomorrow and the new Range Rover Sport is hitting the streets tonight. But this morning I saw a cryptic tweet from Jag's head of PR: They were showing three cars. The third looks to be a coupe with a coffee table mounted on the back. Meet the XKR-S GT.
It has carbon brakes and a ton of downforce. It also has an Eibach tuned suspension and hits 60 in just 3.9 seconds, making it the fastest Jag ever. It's a North America only model, with 30 total cars being built, 25 of which will be in the USA. There is also no power increase compared to the stock XKR-S.
The 'Ring time is 7:40, making it insanely fast. The aero kit also produces real downforce. Looks cool to me. Probably sounds crazy too.
