2014 Jaguar XKR – S GT
Powered by a supercharged 5.0-liter V-8 engine paired to a six-speed ZF automatic, the XKR-S GT dishes out 550 hp and 502 lb-ft of torque. Jaguar says this will get the racer to reach 60 mph in 3.9 seconds with an electronically limited speed of 186 mph.
Built with an all-aluminum body structure, the XKR-S GT moves through the air more swiftly, achieving a maximum downforce of 320 pounds thanks to a carbon-fiber front splitter that extends forward 2.4 inches, carbon-fiber dive planes, extended wheel arches, and an aluminum undertray. Around back, the XKR-S has a huge carbon-fiber air wing affixed to the decklid, and a carbon-fiber rear diffuser that allows air to escape more efficiently. Black 20-inch lightweight forged alloy wheels are shod in Pirelli Corsa tires, and stand out with yellow brake carbon ceramic brake calipers. Several vents on the hood allow the V-8 engine to breathe.
Underneath the skin, the Jaguar’s suspension has been stiffened with new suspension arms, uprights, wheel bearings, bushings, and rear subframe. Its front track has been widened 2 inches, and camber has been increased as well, compared to the regular XKR-S. A new spring and damper module design also helps in this department, with a twin-spring setup that works with Jaguar’s Adaptive Dynamics active damping system that now has height-adjustable dampers. Revisions to the track control system’s calibration and a new steering system with faster steering ratio complete the changes to the hardware.
Offered in Polaris White with black racing stripes, the XKR-S GT has a gray interior highlighted with red accents, and seats covered in soft-grain leather and suede cloth with the Jaguar and R-S GT embroidered on the headrests. Above, jet black suede cloth adorns the headliner. Aluminum paddle shift
