New 2012 Jaguar XKR-S with 550-HP
The XKR-S, with 550 horsepower, 502 pounds of torque and aggressively redesigned aero. Jaguar notes that this is the most powerful and fastest production sports car it's ever offered. 0-60 mph time of 4.2 seconds and a Vmax bumped out to 186 mph.
In addition to the engine and aero tweaks, the XKR-S' suspension has been reworked, there are new 16-way power sport seats with 'carbon-fibre effect' leather (we're pretty sure you're going to need to see this in person to appreciate it), and the whole shebang will be capped off with a price tag of around £97,000 on-the-road. That's around $158,000 U.S
