A hotter, special edition Jaguar XKR will go into production.
The car, based on the one-off Jaguar XKR Special that was shown off at last year's Goodwood Festival of Speed, has already lapped the Nurburgring in 7min 58secs and is being prepared for launch later this year.
No specific details have been revealed for the new production car, but the Goodwood Special has an uprated version of Jag's 5.0-litre supercharged V8 making 523bhp and 516lb ft of torque, as well as lowered suspension, 21-inch alloys and a tweaked exhaust.
"This is definitely not a level of performance anyone would have associated with the XKR before now," Jaguar boss Mike O'Driscoll told Pistonheads.com when asked about the Nurburgring lap time.
O'Driscoll also confirmed that the car will have a top speed of at least 186mph, meaning it will go at least 300kph, which is an important sales point in the German market.
