Written by George Steels. Posted in Cars

For quite a while Jaguar has been promising that it will launch an special model to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the E type. This year everyone though it would be the year but we found out that at the Geneva auto show the company launched another car, the Jaguar XKR-S. The engineers from Jaguar made this sports car angry and untainted. This model does not look anything as a E type car, it looks like it was raised in the wild by very bad and unmanned cars.

Even though this car is not an anniversary model it has some heritage because there are previous Jaguar cars which have had four letters in a row in the name. The first model of this kind was launched in 2005 under the name of  XK-RS, with a V 8 engine with a capacity of 5.0 liters and 550 horse power. The second model with four letter is a row was launched in 2009 called  200 XKR-S, this car was made specially to meet the needs of Europeans. In 2012 Jaguar launches Jaguar XKR-S  which is a combination of the two models. The engine of this car is an upgrade of the one from the  XK-RS.

The design of the 2012 Jaguar XKR-S is aerodynamically driven which is another thing which sets the model apart from the last model. For this model new elements were added which is not something common for this series: the hood is mostly made from vents and nostrils, big rear wings and unique designed front and rear fascias. The shape of the LED headlight is entirely changed, a different shape than the usual KS one. Carbon has also been used for a lot of car part such as: the center section of the wing, front splitter, the latter and the rear diffuser.

A lot of attention has been paid to the chassis to and it is visible to the eye. The upgrade includes: revised rear suspension, a new and improved  steering knuckle made out of aluminum and a 4 inch reduction in ride height.

So, this is the new and wonderful  2012 Jaguar XKR-S which will be available to you starting with the year of 2012. For more information on this car you should go and talk with a Jaguar dealer, he is the only one who can give the price range and other technical information which are very important.
