According to Autocar, a new range-topping Jaguar XFR-S is set to debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show this November.

If the current XKR-S coupe and convertible models are anything to go on, the four-door XFR-S should be powered by a more potent version of Jaguar's 5.0-liter supercharged V8, producing around 550 horsepower. Expect some suspension enhancements to be on board, as well, along with some exhaust tuning to make the big cat growl louder than ever before.

When it launches, the XFR-S will battle head-to-head with the likes of the 560-hp BMW M5 and 518-hp Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG (or 550 with the optional AMG performance pack). For reference, the standard XFR produces 510 hp from its detuned version of the supercharged V8.

We expect more details to arrive closer to the car's alleged November debut. For now, click through the attached high-res gallery to see spy shots of the XFR-S testing at the Nürburgring.

      Why s it that Tata Motors is doing such spectacular product development with Jaguar, and the approx. 10 years that Ford owned Jaguar had such lame products?

        The good products really started to come from Jag too soon after the sale for it to have been all Tata. The XF was largely developed under Ford's watch, but Mulaly saw the financial storm coming and had to dump the brand in order to have enough cash for Ford to survive. Tata got a steal on both Range Rover and Jag since both brands finally had good products coming online. Kudos to Tata for being able to continue the momentum though.

      Really Jaguar, XF-R-S? How many times can you tweak a chip and supercharger, and call it a new model. This would be amazing if they talk to Aston Martin and figured out how to put a V12 in this car, that would a car deserving of adding another letter.

      i wonder why jag is trying to make a two staged performance car line up..........just imagine if bmw has an /M3 and then a bigger more powerful ///M3 to boot...it makes no sense to me...and also the cadillac CTS V is rivaling this car as well

        The two-stage thing is done by other manufacturers: - Porsche has the Cayman S and Cayman R - Audi has a variety of S and RS models - Mercedes has the AMG models and some AMG Black models above that - Ford has the Focus ST and Focus RS - Chevy has the Corvette Z06 and the ZR1 And yes, BMW does it too from time to time with the recent M3 GTS and CRT, the older GTR and CSL and so on. Why do it? Because it's fun to throw racing buckets, bigger engine and stiffer chassis into an everyday car -- and it is a lot easier for a manufacturer to justify that than a bespoke car.

        ya i agree.. they only thing I can think of is that it allows them to play "catch-up" mid-cycle, as opposed to waiting another 5 - 6 years or so for the next R model.

      I like this over the M5 already! Great looking car! I'm sure it's capable of drowning the M5 and the E63 anyday...

      385 hp 470 hp 510 hp 550 hp Is anybody else thinking that we don't really need the 510 hp variant anymore? Just make the XF-R hotter to keep pace with the M5. If the customer prefers grace, then the 470 hp XF Supercharged is perfectly fine. I can't imagine a customer going into a showroom and saying "hmm, the 470 hp variant's just far too soft, and the 550 hp variant is too much for me, I really can only get the 510 hp model."

      well I have an older father who loves jaguar and has been driving them for his whole life. Last year November he picked up the spanking new XFR....its incredible (in all aspects)...... But now there is something even better....its almost a joke! It reminds me of buying a computer 10 years ago
