2014 Jaguar XFR-S Sportbrake

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 head, there are several good reasons for that – not least of which is the unfortunate reality that, unlike so many performance-oriented crossovers and sport-utes, the Sportbrake is not offered in North America. But suppose it were, o... Read More

    As automotive journalists, we get to drive a lot of really cool, high-performance vehicles. It really is the single best thing about this job. However, our access to vehicles is generally limited to the newest offerings on the market. That means, much like the general public, we don't really get access to vintage iron. Jaguar is trying to rectify that ...

    Geneva: 2014 Jaguar XFR-S Sportbrake is one hot hauler
    1394024340

    Oh look, another super-hot wagon that won't be making its way to the US. Awesome. Actually, in all honesty, it really is awesome. Meet the Jaguar XFR-S Sportbrake, a red-hot (or blue-hot?) version of the rakish XF wagon that originally bowed at the Geneva Motor Show back in 2012. The formula here is pretty much plug-and-play: take the 5.0-liter ...

    In the market for an amped-up Jaguar? Look for the letter R, adorning such performance models as the XFR and XJR sedans, the XKR coupe and convertible and the new F-Type R. But if it's bonkers performance you're after, you'll want to add the letter S into the mix as well. Jaguar uses the letters to connote its most hard-core performance variants like the ...

    Want to haul ass down the Autobahn with the whole family and all their gear in tow?

Unfortunately there are precious few of these performance station wagons on the market anywhere, especially ...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    The 2014 Jaguar XFR-S might have only been good enough to take the runner-up spot in our Editor's Choice top five debuts at the LA Auto Show, but we'd be hard-pressed to find a car with a more exhilarating exhaust note. As proof of this, Jaguar released a video showing the XFR-S tearing up a windy, European mountain road in close to a minute of hardcore ...

    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 ...

    The 2014 Jaguar XFR-S was considered last year, teased last week and now has been totally let loose. The most powerful sedan the company has ever made and the newest addition to its line of R-S performance cars – following the XKR-S – and we'll be getting even fewer of them than we thought. 200 had been the rumored allotment for the US, but ...

    Jaguar has given us glimpse of a new "ultra-high-performance" XFR-S ahead of the vehicle's world debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show. Jaguar calls the four-door the fastest and most powerful sedan the company has ever produced, and confirmed details are scarce beyond the fact that only 200 of the vehicles will make it to US shores.

    Jaguar recently took to the Nürburgring to give the upcoming XFR-S a once over. Our spy photographers nabbed the winged sedan as it showed off a spate of new body work, including a more aggressive front fascia, reworked side skirts and, of course, that prominent rear spoiler. The tail end also gets a new diffuser tucked under the rear valance. Word ...

But as we get closer to the production car's debut – reportedly scheduled for the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show – the even-hotter XF's design is coming into focus. And might we say, she's a beaut'.

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.

    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 ...
