Jaguar presents missile wagon

By Nic_low on 01 Mar 2014

Attached Image Jaguar has just handed out details of its XFR-S Sportbrake - a fire breathing, 543bhp 5.0-litre supercharged wagon capable of dishing out a 4.8 seconds century sprint.

Everytime a carmaker spices things up, people (like us) get excited. Moreover we are talking about a Jag here - who could resist a sexy feline that has just gotten hotter?

Based on the XF, the XFR-S Sportbrake is Jaguar's first high performance, R-S badged estate. With that in mind, you can't help but to bring in more 'established' players - such as Audi's RS6 Avant and Mercedes-Benz's E63 AMG S-Model Estate into the picture.

A quick comparison with the two Germans shows that the Jag loses out both in the horsepower contest and the race to 100km/h. The RS6's 4.0-litre bi-turbo V8 develops 560bhp and 700Nm of torque for a 3.9 seconds century sprint timing. The E63 AMG, too, has a bi-turbo V8 - but bored to 5.5-litre. With 585bhp on tap, it will despatch the 0-100km/h sprint in 4.1 seconds.

But we reckon you won't encounter either of these two on a daily basis. More importantly, the Jag has the looks to kill.

Like any super sports car, the XFR-S gets larger-than-life 20-inch rims to help boast a solid, purposeful stance.

Those side blades do look a tad too familiar though (like those on the RS6).

And of course, part of the Sportbrake's appeal lies in its ability to swallow cargo while keeping up with supercars - up to 1,675 litres with the rear seats folded.

Nicholas is in the path where his passion and career are closely knitted. And no way is he screwing that up. Not even if a Porsche looks like a Beetle.

This is probably Jaguar's first go on making a hot estate.
 
The fast estate is a dying breed, I can only think of the E63, RS6 and CTS-V Wagon. The more the better, especially if they are as good looking as this

Stunning....I must say other that the AF 159...this is a great and powerful looking estate. Love the Car but hate the price (in SG esp!!)

Strong resemblance to HSV wagon which can be had at a fraction of the cost.  Besides who to show off to in the Outback?
