The Faster You Go, the Better the Jaguar XFR-S Gets

And it gets just 6 mpg.

The XF literally brought Jaguar into modern times when it launched back in 2008. Since then, however, the sexy sedan hasn’t undergone any drastic changes. Sure, its exterior design still looks great, but its interior layout is dated. On the plus side, buyers have a range of engines to choose from, but the enthusiast’s choice is without a doubt the 5.0-liter supercharged V8. With 550 horsepower on tap, the XFR-S is Jag’s response to the likes of the BMW M5.

As Matt Farah points out, this car’s suspension tuning is truly excellent and acceleration is fantastic. Still, it returns just 6 mpg. But for a $100,000 sticker price, wouldn’t it just make more sense to get an F-Type powered by that same V8? Unless you just have to have a sedan, the answer is quite obvious.
