Jaguar XKR-GT 310713

Jaguar has confirmed that the extreme XKR-S GT sports car will be sold in the UK – but the run here will be limited to just 10 units.

Driven by Sir Chris Hoy at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, the rapid Jaguar is powered by a supercharged 5-litre V8 with 543bhp and 680Nm of torque.

Other technical highlights of the fast cat include a carbon fibre front splitter, extended wheelarch spats, an elevated rear wing, a rear diffuser and an aluminium valance.

Prototype models are currently undergoing testing on road and on track in the UK and Germany.

The XKR-S GT will be priced at £135,000 OTR, with first deliveries planned for October.
