The supercharged version of Jaguar’s second-generation XK aluminium bodied grand tourer, gave it a real performance edge to go with its famous sleek looks.
Supercharging was chosen not only for its smoother and lower-revs power delivery, but also because of Jaguar’s long history with the device, dating back to its glory days at Le Mans.
Power is now 306kW at 6250rpm (compared with 224kW for the 4.2-litre XK and 298kW for the previous XKR) while maximum torque is 560Nm at 4000rpm (7Nm more than the previous model and up from 420Nm at 4100rpm in the XK). The result is a healthy 0-100km/h time of 5.2 seconds and greatly enhanced mid-range acceleration, with an 80-110km/h overtaking time of just 2.5 seconds.
The six-speed ZF automatic gearbox with sequential changing function performs elegantly, but electronic mapping changes have resulted in sharper changes and even more aggressive down-shifting, especially in Sport mode.
However, in keeping with Jaguar tradition, they wanted a more refined delivery of its performance and to have a balance between comfort and sports performance.
Brakes are 26 per cent bigger than on the XK (355mm x 32mm ventilated discs at the front), and design changes have resulted in them running 37 per cent cooler overall to ensure strong, consistent stopping power.
The XKR’s aluminium monocoque chassis is stated to have superior torsional rigidity. The coupe is 30 per cent stiffer than the previous steel-chassis XKR while the convertible is more than 40 per cent stiffer.
The XKR is easily identified by its bold aluminium mesh on the grille and the deeper front air dam, twin bonnet louvres that exhaust hot air from the engine compartment, bold alloy side vents just ahead of the doors and R badging – not to mention four big exhaust outlets at the back.
It sits on massive 20-inch Senta 10-spoke alloy wheels fitted with 255/35 tyres at the front and 285/30 at the rear.
The interior features R branding on the steering wheel, tachometer and gear knob, and aluminium-weave design trim panels.
Standard features include adaptive damping, switchable stability control and traction control, pedestrian impact system (air bags under the bonnet), active headlights, front and rear parking sensors, electronic handbrake, rain-sensing wipers, leather upholstery, auto climate control, auto-dipping mirror, heated front seats, keyless entry and start, trip computer and satellite navigation.
