Jaguar is bringing a new and youthful ride to its popular name, the 2014 Jaguar XFR-S. The Jaguar has a real wing and is backed up by pure muscle. An additional 40 horsepower and 41 lb-ft to its already massive 5.0-liter V8 engine is added. In just over four seconds, the 2014 Jaguar XFR-S can reach 0 to 60 mph and has a high speed of 186 mph. The exhaust is what really brings a roar and what keeps consumers coming. Upgraded torque converter and half-shafts are used to keep the driveline together. The XFR-S adds an additional 40 percent, compared to regular XFR, to the front and rear springs to harden/stiffen them. The braking hardware continues to stay the same as the XFR. You have a choice of five colors as well. The original Jaguar XFR is known for its smooth and luxury rides, but the XFR-S adds stiffness to the suspension to prevent wrecking. There will be only 100 Jaguar XFR-Ss brought to the United States in 2014. Starting base price is $99,895. Even though it may be costly, you can’t go wrong driving a Jaguar!
