And, as you'd expect, power comes on strong right off idle and remains plentiful all the way to redline.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Performance

In the R-S, power builds smoothly into a heady 550 horsepower at 6500 rpm.
by Car and Driver (Nov, 2013)
Slight twitchiness under braking reinforces the impression that the car is spring-loaded for directional changes, a hooligan of the highest order.
by Car and Driver (Aug, 2013)
The added power starts making itself known around 3,000 rpm, and it continues building until 6,500, at which point we're ready for the next gear.

Powertrain

This is the spot where we'd normally make a lame reference to the engine purring (like a jaguar, get it)?
by AutoBlog (Aug, 2013)
Sandwiched between a new intake symposer and that fresh exhaust system, the 5.0-liter V-8 emits a thunderous roar under load, although the aural assault isn’t made of the same stuff as is the baritone bellow of an AMG V-8 or the technical thrum of Audi’s twin-turbo 4.0-liter eight.
by Car and Driver (Nov, 2013)
Power is relayed to the XFR-S’s rear meat via the eight-speed automatic that was retrofitted to every other XF model for 2013.
by Car and Driver (Nov, 2013)

Handling

On the road, steering feel is excellent, with crisp response from the wheel.
by AutoBlog (Aug, 2013)
Jag is still using a fully hydraulic setup in lieu of a more fashionable and fuel-saving electronic steering system here in the XFR-S.
by AutoBlog (Aug, 2013)
Braking is strong and linear, grip is plentiful from the extra-wide Pirelli rubber and the body is very well controlled, both in a straight line and when thrown hard into a tight corner.
by AutoBlog (Aug, 2013)

Engine

While we've never complained about a lack of power from the automaker's 5.0-liter supercharged V8, which spits out 510 horsepower in regular-grade guise, we're never ones to balk at an upgrade.
by AutoBlog (Aug, 2013)
Changes to the engine-management controls and exhaust system squeeze an additional 40 horsepower and 41 lb-ft of torque from Jaguar’s blown 5.0-liter V-8, for totals of 550 and 502.
by Car and Driver (Aug, 2013)
We're not in love with Jaguar's implementation of start/stop tech – the engine shuts off quite noticeably at a stop and restarts with a corresponding jolt when the brake pedal is released.
by AutoBlog (Aug, 2013)

Interior

Front and center inside the cabin is a leather-wrapped steering wheel that perfectly frames the gauge cluster ahead.
by AutoBlog (Aug, 2013)
By and large, the cabin is attractive and comfortable, and nothing gets in the way of driving once you decide to forget about inputting navigation instructions and decide instead to go wherever the road takes you.
by AutoBlog (Aug, 2013)
Jaguar is hurriedly expanding its offerings, intent on becoming a full-line luxury manufacturer.

Jaguar XFR-S

Front suspension knuckles have been revised in line with those found on the XKR-S to achieve the increased camber and castor stiffness which, along with new wheel bearings, optimise steering and handling precision.
The assertive appearance of the XFR-S is further enhanced through the use of gloss black trim in place of chrome around the grille, within the side vent, around the front and rear screens, windows and across the bootlid.
The 2014 Jaguar XFR-S can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds1 (0-100 km/h in 4.6 seconds) and reach an electronically-limited maximum track speed of 186 mph1 (300km/h).
Looks amazing Powerful engine Faster than the standard XF-R Only 100 units will arrive on the U.S. market gallery: Jaguar XFR-S.

First Look: 2014 Jaguar XFR-S

by Donny Nordlicht |
AutomobileMag News
For the most part, the Jag falls between the two Germans: it has more horsepower than the Mercedes, but less than the BMW; more torque than the BMW, but less than the Mercedes; and better gas mileage than the BMW, but worse than the Mercedes.
It is, however, slower than either of the Germans - while the XFR-S makes the run from 0 to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds, the M5 and E63 do it in 4.3 and 4.2 seconds, respectively.
