Jaguar XKR-S GT with Luxury Parameters
|   Saturday, December 28, 2013
The £135,000 Jaguar XKR-S GT is a one of a kind sports vehicle, not just owing to its ground shattering price tag but also due to its massive performance parameters. Despite its massive price tag, this vehicle will not affect Jaguar Land Rover's sales much, as it is basically a Limited Edition. However, it does set a landmark on how fast Jaguar is taking things on the development front.

Even a few years ago, Jaguar was known to be unreliable while its products did not find the right number of buyers.
However, they are springing back to good old times while their profit margin is on an increasing curve. Jaguar claims its XKR-S GT is capable of a top speed of 186 MPH while handling parameters have been enhanced. Jaguar announced plans to launch just 30 units of this vehicle, all destined for the American market, featuring left hand drive.

The story gets even exciting as phones began to ring as soon as Jaguar Land Rover announced its plans for launch. Pre bookings and deals were completed even before a single car went into production and we can safely say that these vehicles sold like hot cake in the American market. Jaguar has learnt a lesson and plan on designing 10 right hand drive versions of this vehicle, if popularity seems high, 20 more will go into production.

We are unsure of the fate of these new vehicles till now although we can discuss about the technical and exterior specifications of this vehicle. Powering the XKR-S GT is a 542 BHP displacing 5.0 liter super charged V8 engine, mated to a six speed automated transmission system. The engine displaces 502 ft lb of torque while a lot of mechanical modifications have been made under its hood.

The exterior too is new and does not bear similarities with the standard XKR. Vital aerodynamic modifications make this vehicle go fast on track and road while its large rear wings and spoiler keeps it grounded. This vehicle sports an all new chassis, drive train; brakes and suspension, all of which helps it go faster while being safer. Jaguar has paid special interest to the vehicle's safety parameters and a load of modern safety units have been installed to keep driver, passenger and pedestrian safe in case of an accident.

Even though this design is considerably new and Jaguar has used it on a Limited Edition vehicle, we believe we will see this body structure soon again as an F Type coupe. It could be quite successful in the commercial market as well and considering Jaguar Land Rover's soaring fortune across global markets, a vehicle of this stature would be a good deal.

Price point is however its downside and Jaguar needs to come up with a cheaper alternative if they are planning on bringing this in full time. We have heard no such rumors so far, even though we have our eyes and ears peeled. Stay tuned for latest reports and news on Jaguar.
