Jaguar announces 174mph XFR
‘Speed Pack’ boosts the Jaaaaaaag XFR’s top speed, new aero bits too
Posted: 03 Sep 2012
We've noted before that the Jaguar XFR was built for people who have nothing really to prove to the world. Now, you can revel in that nonchalance at a considerably quicker rate, because the XFR is now even faster.
It's called the ‘Speed Pack', and is available as a £2,750 option to bolt onto your brand new Jaguar XFR. In the great tradition of Ronseal, it really does exactly what it says on the tin: top speed increases from 155mph to 174mph - with a revised engine and gearbox calibration to deal with it - and there's also a new front aero splitter and a new rear wing,
The engine remains the same ludicrously lovely 5.0-litre supercharged V8 with 510bhp and 461lb ft of torque. That means 0-62mph in...actually, who really cares (4.9s, just in case you do)? It's a big powerful Jaaaaag that's insanely quick and as soft as - in the words of Jeremy - sitting on a fat dog.
