The 2014 Jaguar XFR-S is scheduled to go on sale in the United States from summer of 2013. Pricing will commence from $99,000 (INR 54.77 lakhs), while only 100 models will be offered in the US for the 2014 model year. At the ongoing, 2012 LA Auto Show is where the 2014 Jaguar XFR-S is unveiled publicly for the first time.

Jaguar XFR-S will possess a 5.0 liter supercharged V8 engine offering 550 hp, that is a 40 hp boost over the current XFR, currently available in the market. Top speed is at 186 mph (297 kmph) while acceleration from 0 to 60 mph (97 kmph) is possible in 4.4 seconds. XFR-S mileage however will remain the same at 23 mpg (9.78 kmpl) as seen in the XFR while start stop control is standard.

Suspension has been revamped to add more power while the vehicle offers better handling and stiffer spring rates, a new rear subframe and stiffer bushings. XFR-S possesses 20 inch wheels in front with 265/35R20 tyres while 295/30R20 Pirelli tyres are wider. Jaguar XFR-S will rival cars like the BMW M5, Mercedes Benz E63 AMG and Porsche Panamera Turbo and being a limited edition, it is likely to have a host of buyers clamoring for a part of the 100 number share.
