2008 Jaguar XKR-S is a limited production version of the XKR.
Limited to just 200 units the XKR-S features a variety of enhancements
designed to improve the cars performance and style.
The engine itself is untouched, and is the same 4.2 litre supercharged
V8 found in the standard XKR. The 19 mph increase in top speed
is due to a higher limiter setting, not more power. However
a range of chassis enhancements has improved the cars handling
Just like the XKR, the XKR-S uses the same highly capable and
lightweight all-aluminium monocoque body as a base for the improvements.
The Jaguar XKR-S features revised suspension with new springs,
dampers, anti-roll bar and recalibrated Computer Active Technology
Alcon R Performance brakes with red monobloc six-piston callipers
and 400mm brake discs at the front, 350mm at the rear improve
the stopping power.
Exterior styling revisions for the 2008 Jaguar XKR-S include
a front air-splitter and side sill-extensions, revised rear

panel and unique 20" lightweight Vortex alloy wheels. The XKR-S
is available in one color, Ultimate Black metallic with contrasting
finish to the grille, sills, side power vents and rear diffuser.
