Jaguar XKR-S shows Sportbrake

Jaguar surrendered to the club of supersports turkeys. The XFR-S Sportbrake coming soon to the streets of Europe to try to obfuscate their arquirrivais Audi RS6 and Mercedes-Benz E 63 AMG.

The sports wagon proposal is not limited to the visual. The 5.0 V8 Supercharged engine is the same team that the nervous F-Type Roadster. Just as the XFR-S sedan and coupe XKR-S, the Sportbrake has 542 hp and maximum torque of 69.4 lb-ft. All the power is transmitted to the rear wheels through an automatic transmission eight marches, which makes the van accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in 4.6 seconds and reach 300 km / h, electronically limited.

Although not faster than their German competitors (E 63 takes 3.6 seconds to reach 100 km / h and RS6 accomplishes the same task in 3.9 seconds), the XFR-S Sportbrake can be as beautiful as them. The sports version brings a new aerodynamic kit, complete with unique bumpers, alloy wheels rim 20, front grille with black finish, air extractors on the back-four exhaust outlet.

The XFR-S Sportbrake will be sold for 82,495 pounds sterling, the equivalent of just over 321 thousand dollars.
