These are the latest images of the forthcoming Jaguar XFR-S, which is undergoing final tests at the Nürburgring before its international debut at this month’s Los Angeles motor show.

It has been spotted for the first time with a large rear spoiler, similar to that fitted to the XKR-S coupé. It is expected to make its way onto the production car, but may be offered as a delete option.

The XKR-S also wears a more aggressive body kit than the standard XFR, with deeper front grilles and wider sills.

To compete with the new BMW M5 and bi-turbo Mercedes E63 AMG, the XFR-S is expected to use the 542bhp version of Jaguar’s 5.0-litre supercharged V8 from the XKR-S.
