Leaked: Jaguar XFR-S Sportbrake shows its French Racing Blue colour

Article by Christian A., on February 24, 2014

We already knew that Jaguar is planning a high-performance version of its XF Sportbrake to take on cars such as the RS6 Avant (4.0 TFSI V8 developing 560 hp; 0-100km/h (62 mph) sprint in 3.9 seconds and a top speed of 305 km/h or 189 mph) or the Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG Estate (5.5-liter twin turbo V8 that delivers 557 hp; 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.2 seconds and a top speed electronically limited at 155 mph or 250 km/h), but today the first image emerged on the Web thanks to the folks from Autocar.

Wearing the same stunning blue color just like the saloon version, the XFR-S Sportbrake will get the same 5.0-liter that generates 550 hp and 680 Nm of torque as well as the 8-speed automatic transsmission.

Just like the saloon version, the new XFR-S Sportbrake is expected to zoom from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.5 seconds and have a top speed of 186 mph or 300 km/h. Regarding the design, the XFR-S Sportbrake comes with a new bumper with big air inlets that suggest the power generated by the big V8 engine, a carbon fiber front lip spoiler, a new rear bumper with integrated air diffuser as well as a four-pipe exhaust system.

Moreover, the Jaguar XFR-S Sportbrake is expected to get the same 5-special colors seen on the saloon: the French Racing Blue, Ultimate Black, Stratus Gray, Italia Racing Red and Polaris White. Pricing is expected to start at just over £80,000 (96,000 euros or $133,000). We don't have any details regarding the debut of the new high-performance estate from Jaguar but we do expect to see this new baby at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, next month!
