The 2015 Jaguar XFR-S Sportbrake was officially unveiled today and as expected, the British carmaker now owned by Tata Motors, will bring it at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. Just like the saloon version, the 2015 Jaguar XFR-S Sportbrake is powered by the 5.0-liter supercharged V8 engine that generates 550 hp and 680 Nm of torque.
Bolted to an eight-speed transmission with Quickshift technology, the engine pushed the XFR-S Sportbrake from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.8 seconds (0-60 mph in 4.6 seconds) and has an electronically limited top speed of 300 km/h or 186 mph.
Regarding the design, the XFR-S Sportbrake has been subtly modified and comes with the a deeper front bumper that incorporates larger lower central and side air intakes (framed in carbon fiber), a front splitter, new side sills and aeroblade mouldings behind the front wheels that create a sharp break-off point between the lower bodywork and the road surface, a new rear bumper that incorporates a central, carbon fiber air diffuser and a rear roof spoiler.
Moreover, the find the six-spoke 20-inch lightweight Varuna forged alloy wheels that come as standard with a dual finish, while a full gloss black or technical grey finishes are offered as an option. XFR-S Sportbrake customers can choose from an exterior palette comprising five colours: Ultra Blue, Ultimate Black, Stratus Grey, Polaris White and Italian Racing Red.
Inside, we find the Warm Charcoal leather rim on the seats and doors, enhanced by the use of carbon effect leather. Seen also on other R-S models from Jaguar are the seat bolsters and arm rests that reflect the use of exotic carbon fiber on the aerodynamic elements.
The seats themselves are embossed with the R-S logo and can be finished with a choice of contrast colour micro-piping and stitching in either red, blue or ivory. The same subtle enhancement runs across the top of the dashboard, the fascia of which is finished in a Dark Aluminium unique to the R-S, complete with badging. Pricing starts at £82,495 in UK ($137,000 or 100,000 euros).
