Jaguar Considering Expanding XKR-S GT Production: Report

Follow Nelson

Unveiled just a couple of weeks ago at the 2013 New York Auto Show, the Jaguar XKR-S GT is the brand's ultimate interpretation of track-tuned, street-legal XK awesomeness. And it looks like it may be more in demand than Jaguar expected.

Originally, the company had planned to build just 30 examples of the XKR-S GT, at a price of $174,000. Now, it looks like the brand could expand that figure to 50, according to a report from Autocar citing Jaguar's global brand director, Adrian Hallmark.

Capacity for the extra production exists, according to Hallmark, should customers want to buy the car. The original production cap was put in place to justify the program's business case.

Perhaps even more enticingly, however, Hallmark notes that the developments made for the XKR-S GT could find uses in the entire Jaguar range. Things like aerodynamics, brake enhancement, and weight reduction--things that could make the F-Type even more interesting than it is.
