Jaguar has taken the wraps off the new XKR-S at the Geneva Motor Show.

Built to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the E-type, the XKR-S has an aggressive front fascia, aerodynamic side skirts, and LED-infused headlights. Elsewhere, the car is equipped with black mesh grille inserts, new front fenders, a sporty rear diffuser, and a massive rear wing.

As one of the most powerful Jaguars ever created, the XKR-S uses a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine with 550 PS (405 kW / 542 hp) and 680 Nm (501 lb-ft) of torque. It enables the coupe to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 4.2 seconds, 0-100 mph in 8.6 seconds, and on to a top speed of 186 mph (300 km/h).

Lastly, the XKR-S has a heavily revised suspension and a reprogrammed Adaptive Dynamics system which "allows the enthusiastic driver to explore the edges of the handling envelope."
