Jaguar XFR shows its teeth at Detroit Show

The new Jaguar XFR has just been shown off for the first time at the Detroit Auto Show and it has some serious claws. Set to go head-to-head with the big dogs in the high-performance luxury sedan segment, the XFR draws its power from a new version of Jaguar’s AJV8 that’s larger at 5.0 litres of displacement and supercharged to produce 510 bhp and 460 lb-ft of torque. This will take the new Jag from 0-100 kph in just 4.7 seconds and to an electronically limited top speed of 250 kph. The XFR is also fitted with new 20-inch Nevis alloy wheels and larger brakes with calipers bearing the “R” logo.

The XFR features a number of exterior tweaks over the standard XF that emphasise its sporting nature, including a new front end with a new bumper design incorporating large, chrome trimmed air inlets on either side, hood vents, new fenders, side sills, a decklid spoiler, and a new rear bumper that houses four exhaust pipes.

The interior is also dressed up with new dark aluminum trim, sports seats bearing the “R” logo and a sport steering wheel. The new range-topping XF can be had in eight colors: Botanical Green, Indigo, Kyanite Blue, Liquid Silver, Lunar Grey, Porcelain and Salsa.
