Jaguar XKR-R Spotted Roaming The Streets?

Illustration for article titled Jaguar XKR-R Spotted Roaming The Streets?

The folks over at Autogespot happened upon a not-so-regular Jaguar XK with factory plates running around town and they're not sure what it is. Could this be the mysterious Jaguar XKR-R that apparently showed up at the 'Ring a year ago and then disappeared? The XKR-R was supposed to get a 500-horsepower version of the V8 and other super-luxo-car upgrades. Now that there's no pressure to avoid encroaching on Aston, could the super sporty Jaguar XKR-R become a reality? Only time or a loose-lipped executive will tell.

@j6r: I'm honestly hopeful that you are right.

It is a great marque, deserving of dedicated ownership.

The XF may be selling, as evidenced by the fact that I've now seen a few here in LA, but it is really ugly in every trim level and color.

I hope that Tata can do better.
