Of course, this means it's a very drivable road car, but don't go getting carried away, because, just like the XKR-S and F-Type V8S, there's only one end that's going to break free, and the XFR-S ain't no cowardly understeerer. It likes to take things broadside. Fortunately for those who don't have an airfield at their disposal, there's a TracDSC mode which lets you play like a toddler on a rein - however, if you do turn everything off, ironically a small child is exactly what you feel like as 542bhp cuts loose.
