Jaguar's XF is a beautifully made and very capable competitor to the BMW 5-Series and Mercedes E-Class, but the hotted-up XFR doesn't quite stand up to the monsters that are the M5 and E63 AMG. That is why Jaguar has taken the same touches applied to the XKR-S, and slapped them onto the XFR, in order to turn it into the brand new Jaguar XFR-S.

Basically, to translate from automotive alphabet soup and into English, this new Jag will sport a 550hp supercharged V8, as well as finely tuned handling. The whole car will be unveiled at the L.A. Auto Show at the end of this month.
