Jaguar announced this morning that its new supercharged XKR high-performance coupe will make its world debut next month at the British International Motor Show in London. The automaker is keeping mum on the car's specifics for now, but expect additional information to trickle out as we get closer to its July 18 unveiling. That the big reveal is happening on the company's home turf only adds to the building anticipation and makes it an early favorite to be the star of the show.
What we do know is that the new XKR was designed at Jaguar's Whitley Product Development Centre in Coventry, and will be built at its Castle Bromwich facility in Birmingham. Like it's XK sibling, the XKR should be lighter and faster than the vehicle it's replacing.
As for how it looks, all we've got is a teaser for now, but as soon as we get our hands on more pictures, we'll share them with you.
