2013 Jaguar XFR-S

Why Ask Questions When You Already Know The Answer? "Is it fast?" We get that question a lot. Several times a month, in fact, and it comes from every corner of our lives – friends, family, complete strangers and even colleagues from time to time. And it's an understandable query. After all, speed, either in a straight line or around a twisty bit of tarmac, is a universally accepted line of demarcation between the typical family sedan and something much more fun and therefore desirable. Imagine our surprise, then, when we encountered a small group of casual passers-by while... Read More

    First Drive: 2014 Jaguar XFR-S Sportbrake
    A Supercharged Power Wagon Worthy Of The Nürburgring 1403020620

    We'd consider giving up vital organs for the opportunity to drive any number of vehicles on the Nürburgring: supercars, racecars, track cars, even hot hatches... but a station wagon? That might not seem like a top choice at first blush, but this is no ordinary wagon. This is the Jaguar XFR-S Sportbrake. Now if that name leaves you scratching your ...

    Video: Is the Jaguar XFR-S really worth $17k more than the XFR? [w/poll]
    1390438800

    Adding performance to a car is rarely cheap – whether you're looking to do it yourself or rely on the factory to do it for you. In the case of the new Jaguar XFR-S, the cost differential over an already-impressive (and somewhat expensive) XFR is a stout $16,800. Auto Express recently got a hold of both cars to see whether that price pays off on the ...

    Video: Jaguar XFR-S pitted against Mercedes E63 AMG
    1377102600

    It was Steve Sutcliffe at Autocar who got the tough job of comparing the Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG to the limited edition Jaguar XFR-S on the track and sheep-strewn British B-roads. In UK spec both Mephistophelean sedans wrangle the same 542 horsepower, but step out of the corral and things look to weigh heavily in the Mercedes' favor: it has more torque, ...

    Spy Shots: Jaguar's XFR-S Sportbrake looks to be one hot kinschlepper
    1374587880

    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 ...

    Los Angeles: 2014 Jaguar XFR-S is the power and the fury
    1354208280

    If there's something wrong about a sedan with a 550-horsepower supercharged V8, we don't want to hear about it. Instead, we want to marvel at the car in person, which is fortuitous because Jaguar has officially unveiled the 2014 XFR-S at the 2012 LA Auto Show. That blown 5.0-liter V8 dishes up a full 502 pound-feet of torque, which is good enough to ...

    An English Bulldog Learns New Tricks The booming woke us. We had spent the night on a slip road next to Stonehenge, and now somewhere, every few minutes, a cataclysm dropkicked the sky and beat Mother Earth badly enough to warrant pressing charges. This is a miserable wake-up call: Gray sky, foggy Earth, a mystical monolith, the ground beneath having a ...

    Report: Jaguar "seriously considering" XFR-S [w/poll]
    1328211000

    There's little question that the Jaguar XFR (pictured above at left) is an impressive cat, indeed. Five hundred horsepower and a healthy dose of British charm will do that for you, after all. The trouble is that with around 550 hp apiece, the Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG and BMW M5 are that much more impressive. And so Jaguar is reportedly working on a hotter ...

    The latest BMW M5, Jaguar XFR, Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG and Porsche Panamera S all have lots of things in common. They all have four doors, V8 engines underhood, hail from high-end European automakers known for luxury and performance and can all be had for a wee bit under $100,000. But which one is fastest? Well, that depends on how you're planning to ...

    There are plenty of attributes we associate with Jaguar. Luxurious, powerful and attractive all spring readily to mind, but we're not sure we'd tie the world "playful" to the brand. Jaguar seems to think otherwise, and has released a new ad showing three of its most sultry models frolicking about in jungles both natural and urban. The spot ends with the ...

    When is a Jaguar XFR not a Jaguar XFR? When it's an XFR-S, that's when. So while this vehicle may look like your standard supercharged Jaguar sedan, it's actually a British rocket aimed – in a bit of role reversal – squarely at Germany. Spied undergoing development work at Jaguar's test center near the Nürburgring, this test mule looks ...

    If you're a fan of the latest design direction at Jaguar and of station wagons, we had some potential good news for you last week. That's when reports indicated that the British automaker was proceeding with plans to make a long-roofed version of its XF sedan. Now it seems the news is only getting better. In follow-up reports, Jaguar's design director ...

    Eager to show it's at the top of its game, Jaguar has been promoting a raft of new technologies, models and variants under development of late. We've recently confirmed a new four-cylinder diesel for the XF (earmarked towards European buyers) and reports of an all-wheel-drive variant of the XJ flagship (targeted for North American consumption), but new ...

    Car and Driver has found a couple of revisions to the Jaguar XF for 2011 that haven't really been crowed about. Anyone who's ever been tempted to punch the dashboard after poking at the unresponsive touch-sensitive glovebox "target" will feel gratified to see the new pushbutton Jaguar has put into the 2011 Jaguar XF. The mechanism is still electrically ...

    Jaguar's current styling language alienated some who were enamored with the previous classical design, while others (ourselves included) greeted the more avant-garde approach as a much-needed breath of fresh air. To enhance Jag's new design, the automaker has just released this Black Pack appearance kit for the XF sedan, and might we say, ...

    When our man Lieberman drove the 2010 Jaguar XF Supercharged earlier this year, he came to the conclusion that of all the models in the XF range, the mid-grade Supercharged with its 470-horsepower V8 was the one to have, if you're buying. After all, at a relatively modest $68,000, it's a sexy sleeper with enough high-powered thrills to keep you happy ...

Talk to folks from the Big Three and they'll tell you in no uncertain terms that fighting persistent jokes and decades-old impressions is, well, difficult. Those old impressions ...
