According to a report in Autocar, demand for the Jaguar XKR-S GT is such that the English company could nearly double production from 30 to 50 cars. Such inflation can often incense those have already put deposits down, worried that they've both been lied to about the potentially diminished values of their cars, but Jaguar has made the announcement barely a day after the XKR-S GT was revealed and 50 still isn't that many vehicles.

Nothing in the Autocar report indicates the additional examples will not come to America, making the 500-horsepower superfast coupe a treat we can still call all our own. Jaguar didn't add horsepower but instead honed other aspects of the car to produce a GT that can lap the 'Ring nearly as quickly as a Ferrari 458 Italia, and the world should be the beneficiary, the company's brand director saying, "The real beauty of this project has been that it has extended our understanding of the elements involved in making a car go so fast, and that will feed back into all our road car programs." Sounds good to us.

      Good lord this Jaguar XKR-S GT SS NISMO SHELBY500 R-Spec has quite a front end. Looks like everything bad from the GTR and a 2013 Gen Coupe combined into one.

      The more acronyms they add to the XK, the worse it looks.

          @Sims...there is a difference between Race and Rice. This XKR-S GT is a special track car only for people who are into racing, not a rice car. Ricing is for cheap people who want to look cool, impress girls by putting ridiculous spoilers, exhaust on cheap Japanese cars.

          Race or Rice? I'll have my XK as it should be... a sexy luxury GT without all the Need For Speed fins, stripes and wings.

      I took a closer look at it on the Jag site and was surprised to see that the interior has not changed. I was expecting to see it stripped down with a roll bar. If I had the money to buy it I would take out the leather, stereo, passenger and back seats and anything else I could tare out of it to reduce weight. I'd put in a full roll cage. All the things that Jaguar should have done.
