Grey Metallic Jaguar XKR-S

This Jaguar XKR-S is my first find in the San Francisco/Bay Area. I have been waiting to see this car for a while now; as it happened, I saw two in one day, this one and one at a dealership. In person, the XKR-S lives up to my expectations: The XKR Black Pack was heading in the right direction, but if you’re going to spend over $100,000 on an extreme Jaguar, you want it to look like this. Some may consider the red calipers and unpainted carbon fiber a little too audacious, but mixed with the intelligent cuts and painted aero pieces I think it finds a balance. Besides, supercars are supposed to be wild, with the Jaguar you get the gorgeous styling of the XK with a little extra to make it really stand out. Additionally, it’s not as if the flashy parts are just for show, something has to hold the tweaked 550 HP supercharged V8 to the ground. With this power plant and the assistance of a revised suspension system, 0-60 is accomplished in 4.2 seconds. The XKR-S can reach a top speed of 186 MPH, which to me seems a little low, but as Jay Leno says, “All the fun of a car is really between 40 and 120.”
