The fastest ever Jaguar XKR coupe has been unveiled at next month's Geneva motor show.
The revised Jaguar XKR has a top speed of 174mph, raised from 155mph, and will be displayed with new performance and styling packs.
“With 503bhp and 461lb ft of torque, the XKR has immense reserves of power and acceleration," said Russ Varney, chief programme engineer, XK Series.
"The car has always had the potential to reach speeds far beyond its original electronically limited maximum and many of our customers have expressed an interest in a car that can safely be driven faster where conditions permit.”
The speed pack - which costs £3500 - works via an engine and transmission recalibration, and to ensure the car remains stable at high speeds it sports a revised front aerodynamic splitter and larger rear spoiler. The Active Differential Control unit also adjusts to reduce steering sensitivity at very high speeds, further improving stability.
