You may remember last year a pre-production Nissan GT-R prototype burned some rubber for the appreciating public and now in 2008 Jaguar have used the event to show off their upcoming ZF-R.

This past weekend was the annual Goodwood Festival of Speed, a venue which is becoming an excellent launching pad for the manufacturers to show off their latest prototypes under devlopment. You may remember last year a pre-production Nissan GT-R prototype burned some rubber for the appreciating public and this year Jaguar have used the event to show off their upcoming ZF-R.

The short video clip shows the model buring some rubber on the race circuit and our first real chance to hear the expected 500hp supercharged 5.0-liter engine hiding beneath the models posterior.

The quad exhaust set-up gives the XF-R a mean look to it, the front end was still heavily camoflaged but there is likely to be an aggressive front styling hiding underneath. We expect to see its worldwide debut at the British Motor Show later this month.
