This is the Jaguar XFR-S Sportbrake, which is too cool for North American sale (the Sportbrake, not the XFR-S sedan, which we're getting soon). Like the XFR-S four-door, it has a 5.0-liter, supercharged V8 pumping out around 550 horsepower.

Our spy photographer's x-ray vision is saying that a ZF eight-speed automatic will be the gearbox of choice for the XFR-S wagon, which fits with the sedan, as well. The Sportbrake also has the usual high-performance touches, with huge air intakes in the front fascia, big wheels wrapped in low-profile tires, a dropped suspension and a rear end that's wearing a diffuser and a pair of meaty, quad exhausts. We're happy to see that the XFR-S Sedan's rear spoiler - or some iteration thereof – isn't here to mangle the Sportbrake's beautiful shape.

Where the this super-fast hauler will debut remains a question. There's virtually zero chance of it arriving at an American auto show (although we do endorse that, and any other decision that brings this wagon to our shores), which likely means it'll be in Europe. The Frankfurt Motor Show and Geneva Motor Show seem like the leading contenders, but we'll just have to wait and see.

      Since the CTS sportwagon is going to be discontinued . Jaguar should consider selling a limited amount of these wagons in the US .

      Ashame the US market isn't open to sport "wagons". It's not the Clarke Griswold era anymore. I'd love to have eithert his or a E63 S touring as a family car.

      I actually prefer an SUV to a shooting-brake. Think Jeep or Range Rover. Why? I like to sit up high so I can see farther out. Why not get a truck then? I don't need the flatbed. Plus, with a Jeep, I can go on camping trips, while getting similar interior volume to your current choice of shooting-brake.

        You dont need a jeep to go camping. I took my '92 Cadillac places in the bush you wouldn't believe without problems when I was a kid. You're argument falls back to one issue most Americans suffer from: poor self image and insecurity. You need an SUV because that makes you feel more secure in your self (and only because you are a victim of marketers telling you that their much higher margin SUV's are what you really want). You probably buy the gold clubs your favorite NFL star endorses and your wife bought the stroller Kim K was quoted as loving in People magazine.

          Apparently you have a reading comprehension issue. I also like the Jeep for off-roading, going through rocky terrain, something that your '92 Cadillac can't do. You wouldn't install a a winch on your car to pull a large tree, but on my Jeep Wrangler, it's home. PLUS, as I said before, I like the visibility I get when sitting higher. If you like your wagon, great, more power to you. You don't see me throwing out petty insults, do you? For MY purposes, I prefer an SUV.

          "I like to sit up high" really? that's your argument for paying a massive mark up on an SUV? Oh, and you need somewhere to mount a winch? If you really have a jeep with a winch (I'd be surprised if you did) then fine, but Warn sells about 200,000 winches each year (including commercial and gov sales) compared to how many millions of SUV's? You could go for a whole year and not see one SUV with a winch mounted in most populated parts of the country. Fact is 95% of all SUV drivers would save considerably driving a wagon and get EVERYTHING they need that the believe their SUV provides for them. And BTW, those weren't petty insults they were valid, objective observations of the american car buyer and their efforts to overcome insecurity through vehicle purchases
