Jaguar has announced plans to introduce the XJR at the New York Auto Show.
Described as a "dynamic flagship," the model is distinguished by a revised front bumper, a ventilated hood and black mesh grille inserts. There's also a sport-tuned suspension, red brake calipers and five-spoke alloy wheels.
Power will be provided by a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine that develops 550 HP (405 kW) and, presumably, 680 Nm (502lb-ft) of torque. Jaguar declined to go into specifics, but engine will likely enable the model to accelerate from 0-60 mph in less than 4.5 seconds.
In a statement, Jaguar Global Brand Director Adrian Hallmark said, "The new XJR epitomizes the three pillars of technology, performance and contemporary design which the Jaguar brand stands for in the twenty-first century, while delivering new levels of dynamic ability in a luxury saloon."
