Holiday Wishes Of A Jaguar XSR 575
Jaguar has been keeping any bit of XS news close to heart and we havenít heard much since they filed a trademark in Europe for a XS nameplate earlier this year, but if it really is to be a XJ replacement, then perhaps we may see a XSR 575 at some point in the future.
What brought on this bit of wishful thinking was AutoBlogís
first drive review of the 2018 Jaguar XJR 575. As suggested by its name, the performance sedan produces 575 PS and 700nm of torque. Though the 5.0-litre V8 petrol engine remains, Jaguar managed to coax an extra 25 horsepower out of it by recalibrating the software. That slight improvement is enough to propel the sedan from 0- 60 mph in 4.2 seconds.
Of course a $122,400 price tag canít be justified with just a power increase, thus the plethora of luxury cabin features. Drivers will find themselves ensconced in diamond-quilted and perforated leather seats whilst enjoying what the 1,300-watt Meridian sound system has to offer. Unfortunately, the massage feature is not available, though its impressive responsiveness and on road handling could make drivers overlook that missing option.
Let us know what you think of our holiday wishes or share yours for the upcoming Jaguar XS, which is expected to arrive in 2019.
