2014 Jaguar XJR
Did you hear the growl of a jaguar? The new 2014 Jaguar XJR is set to be one of the wildest beasts on the road. The large sedan is not designed for someone who wants a nice sedate ride back and forth to the office. This is a real man’s sedan with over 550HP exploding out of the 5.0 Liter V-8 engine. The power is funneled back to the wheels by an 8-gear automatic transmission and active locking differential.
Now are you ready to hear the real fun? This sedan scoots from 0-60MPH in 4.4 seconds and has a top speed of 174MPH. There is one little fact you need to know about that top speed, it isn’t true. That 174MPH top speed is only because Jaguar electronically inhibited the car. The real top potential of the car is unknown. (Makes you wonder how long before someone defeats that feature.)
Jaguar went to some extra effort on the new XJR series to make the interior comfort unbelievable. The exterior received fine tuning to decrease drag and improve handling. The car hugs the road like only a Jaguar can. The starting price for an XJR is $116,000. You can have some fun designing your own XJR on Jaguar’s website.
