    For $236, you can take a thrilling ride around the Nürburgring in the passenger seat of a high-performance Jaguar. The British automaker has been offering the service, known as the Jaguar Race Taxi, since about 2012, initially with the XJ Supersport only and later with the F-Type SVR as well. Now Jaguar has replaced the XJ Supersport with the even faster XJR575, a 575-horsepower super sedan capable of accelerating to 60 mph in 4.2 seconds and reaching a top speed of 186 mph.

  • Jaguar XJ derivative

    The XE SV Project 8 isn’t the only attraction at Jaguar’s stand at the 2017 Goodwood Festival of Speed. Jaguar also had what it’s referring to as a “new XJ derivative,” though the automaker wasn’t willing to discuss any details as development isn’t complete. All Jaguar would say is that the car will be revealed in full this summer after some final testing. A special wrap covering the car contained “XJR” and “575” in big bold figures. This suggests we’re looking at an XJR coming down the line with a 575-horsepower version...

    Jaguar’s current XJR only hit the market last year but an update is already on the way, as evidenced by these spy shots of a prototype version of the luxurious sport sedan. The update will coincide with the introduction of a facelifted XJ range later this year, and appears to include subtle changes to the styling at the front and rear of the car. The bumpers on the prototype are new, and the intakes at the front are bigger than those on the current XJR. The grille surround also extends further out slightly, making the grille appear deeper. This will be a common feature on the facelifted...

    Jaguar’s full-size XJ sedan has long been big on comfort, but it isn’t exactly the first thing that comes to mind when someone says “sport sedan,” even in Supercharged form. Jaguar is looking to correct that with the launch of its 2014 XJR, which promises to serve up equal...

  • 2014 Jaguar XJR

    It's a seemingly contradictory set of goals: executive luxury sedan comfort and style, with track-capable handling and supercar levels of power. But for some reason, it just works. Case in point: initial impressions of the Nürburgring-tuned 2014 Jaguar XJR. We're not going to get epistemological here. We don't know how we know the formula works, we just know. In the 2014 XJR's case, the recipe is straightforward: take one part Jaguar XJ all-aluminum construction and design-focused luxury, add one part 550-horsepower supercharged 5.0-liter V-8, mix with equal parts suspension tuning...
