British show debut for supercharged XKR
12 June 2006

Jaguar is to unveil the new supercharged 4.2-litre V8 XKR at the British International Motor Show next month.

The XKR will be revealed at a press conference on the Jaguar stand on Tuesday 18 July.

"Following the resounding success of the XK since it went on sale earlier this year, we are confident that the much awaited XKR will continue to build on the momentum the car has generated for our dealers," said Jaguar's UK Managing Director Geoff Cousins.

As with all Jaguars, the new XK is designed, engineered and developed at the company's in Coventry, and it is manufactured at Castle Bromwich in Birmingham.

More information will be released at the motor show, but expect the XKR to have in excess of 400bhp to trump its predecessor. Styling tweaks are rumoured to include mesh inserts in the grille, extra body mouldings and four prominent rear tailpipes. Inside there will be sports seats and bespoke trim options.
