TG drives the Jaguar XKR-S in Norway
The Jaguar XKR-S is a special car in need of a special road. Thankfully, the Norwegians made sure it got one...

The XKR-S likes long ways. What a car this is. Despite packing 542bhp and a top speed of 186mph, it isn't, as the marketing types claim, the fastest and most powerful Jaguar ever: 1991's XJ220 boasted the same power output and could manage 217mph flat out. Nor is it, despite the name, a pared-down, roll-caged rival to Porsche's 911 GT3 RS: there's more leather in the XKR-S's cabin than at a Hells Angel's funeral, along with a pair of occasional rear seats and a decent-sized boot under the rear hatch.
