Capable of covering 0-62mph in 4.4 seconds (three tenths faster than the 503bhp XJ Supersports) and hitting a limited top speed of 174mph, the XJR brings supercar performance to the XJ range.
As you can see, the Jaguar XJR gets a new bodykit, special louvres in the bonnet and quad tailpipes at the rear. A set of bespoke 20-inch alloy wheels wrapped in Pirelli Pzero Corsa tyres, a boot-lip spoiler and some trademark R styling touches, such as the red Jaguar badge in the grille, finish off the look.
The mechanicals have been tailored for faster driving, too, including an upgraded steering system with valves taken from the F-Type, quicker shifts from the eight-speed automatic gearbox and recalibrated suspension honed at the Nurburgring.
Ian Callum, Jaguar’s Design Director said: "This XJR is the flagship XJ and I'm delighted we've got it back into the range. This is a premium luxury supercar that also has an extremely purposeful look to it. This car will surprise, there's no doubt about it."
The XJR will go on sale this summer, with a starting price of £92,500.
