The Jaguar XKR-S isn't simply an XKR with more power.
Jaguar's tweaked it under the skin to make it as driver focused as possible.
It's also given the exterior a going over.
There are more vents...
...a massive spoiler...
...and some rather tasty aero tweaks.
The power hike means it can be quite lairy in the wet.
If the tarmac's even a little damp, putting your foot down will cause the traction control to go nuts.
However, in the dry it's grippy enough to have some serious fun.
Noise is one of the XKR-S' fortes.
It sounds dirty, mechanical, and LOUD.
Speed is also one of the XKR-S' plus points.
The acceleration is unrelenting.
