Love the Jaguar XK-series chassis, but think the 503-horsepower XKR is too docile for your tastes? Well, Jaguar may have the vehicle for you when it unveils the new 550-horsepower Jaguar XKR-S at the 2011 International Motor Show in Geneva.
The last time we saw a Jag wearing the XKR-S badge was at the 2008 Geneva show, where a limited edition of the super-coupe was unveiled. The XKR-S announced today will feature a supercharged V-8 engine producing 550-horsepower and 502 pound-feet of torque. That sort of output gets you a top speed of 186 mph and a 0-60 time of 4.2 seconds. There's also a revised suspension and, according to Jaguar's press release, "a new aerodynamically driven design."
You can grab a peek at this new design in the two photos released by the automaker leading up to the show and stay tuned for more details and information as our coverage of the 2011 Geneva auto show develops.
