Jaguar unveils 5-liter supercharged V8 XFR-S Sportbrake at Geneva

The third model in Jaguar’s R-S range, the XFR-S Sportbrake, has been unveiled at this year’s Geneva International Motor Show, featuring a 5-liter supercharged V8 petrol engine that delivers 550ps and 680Nm or torque.
Able to sprint from 0-100km/h in 4.8 seconds, Jaguar’s first high-performance sports estate car has an electronically limited top speed of 300km/h and offers 40ps and 55Nm more over its XFR installation thanks to revisions to the engine management system and optimization of the flow of air into and out of the engine.
Matched to an 8-speed transmission with Quickshift functionality, the all-aluminum quad-cam engine features technologies such as spray-guided direct injection and dual independent variable cam timing. The high-pressure die-cast lightweight aluminum block is stiffened with cast iron liners and cross-bolted main bearing caps. The four-valve cylinder heads are constructed from recycled aluminum, between them sitting the Roots-type twin vortex supercharger fed by two intercoolers. These feature their own water-cooling circuit to reduce the temperature of the pressurized air.
In order to achieve its higher power and torque over the standard XFR, larger front air intakes in the lower bumper of the XFR-S allow greater volumes of air to be fed into the engine. The exhaust system has been optimized to channel waste gases away from the engine.
