Starting with the big dogs

2010 Jaguar XFR creeps up to you. You must work with one eye on the speedometer, and the examination of the perception of speed, with the reality of black, white and red. XFR is raw edges Racing sedan is a 510-horsepower supercharged BMW M5 expression bait with great finesse.

Jaguar XFR is quick, beautiful and very British challenge the hegemony of the German sport sedans that mustache quiver in Ingolstadt, Munich and Stuttgart. If the Jaguar XF sedan last year, their self-induced dream, in 2010 XFR high caffeine consumption.

In 2010 Jaguar XFR, Jaguar boys, finally, the car, Ford began promising, since the pumping money into the company in 1990. The irony is that the new owner Tata Motors get a loan.

As always, begins with the engine
It was a long time, but the new 5.0 liter V8 Jaguar finally with us. An example of supercharging the engine will follow shortly, but the supercharged version, which we have here. It can serve as the AJ-V8 III generation, but it's a new machine with only two parties with the old 4.2 liter V8. The main technologies in the R-type is the application of direct injection, variable valve timing for intake and exhaust systems, the intermediate and the last two Roots-type, double-swirl compressor.

Turbochargers have been in the news a lot lately, especially in the BMW solution for technology in their road cars, and a new generation of compressor technology has recently arrived. Jaguar is working for the throttle response, performance and packaging. Well, he AMG compressor, the use of "excessive" Jaguar "is also a key difference in comparison with their competitors in Germany. The new engine is familiar with Six-speed ZF 6HP28 automatic, although it has been uprated to cope with the additional boost.

Comments and recommendations will certainly impressive, as the Jaguar engineers to 500 hp in the belief that it is now a prerequisite for entry into the super-sedan club. To this end, the 2010 Jaguar XFR supercharged V8 5,0 L offers up to 510 hp from 6000 to 6500 rpm with 461 lb-ft of torque from 2500 to 5500 on. / Min. This compares with a very impressive Audi RS6 rating 580 hp and 479 pound-feet of torque, BMW M5 500 hp and 383 pound-feet of torque, and Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG 507 hp and 464 pound-feet of torque.

On the way
These figures are impressive, even in that car weighs 4169 kg. Jaguar XFR claim at 60 km / h in 4.6 seconds with a point on the way to a quarter-mile in 13.1 seconds. Speed of 50 miles / h to 70 km / h in just 1.9 seconds, top speed is electronically limited to 155 MPH. It was a terrible car, and do not have to work so as to naturally aspirated or BeeEm MERC. You do not need power, but also a huge dollops of torque of the compressor.

This is particularly the production of energy, with a beautiful box smoothly is the key to the secret XFR limousines. In addition, the engine is so quiet that you never know who is working very hard. Jaguar has eliminated everything except the bootloader to complain that the soundtrack to the old wind-blown 4.2-liter V8 and 5.0 liter V8 emits a deep, low woofle no more than moderate. And as the 2010 Ford Mustang and Ford Focus RS 2009, a system for the introduction of sound in the cabin of the engine a little personality.

Nevertheless, this engine is very quiet. After all, if they were so far in the sport sedan, it deserves a little drama. 2010 Jaguar XFR is a modern machine, it sounds better than the road from the driver's seat. Jaguar may, the new version optional active exhaust system to the latest Jaguar XKR sports cars.

This sport Motorsport
There are two important new chassis type R in the designation sedan XF: Differential control of property (ADC) and adaptive dynamics. ADC simply the difference in dealing with the electronics to control the torque at each wheel, only where necessary. The difference is working in conjunction with stability, with the PS in all road conditions. This is a very effective, so that a car with smooth and clean, with substantial input control, even on a wet surface.

Meanwhile, the dynamics of change in the gas and gear, depending on how you are, but also to change the parameters continuously variable damping suspension. In other words, he recognizes that he now wants to play and quickly to more aggressive attitude cushioning. As a result, you can take advantage of the suspension of comfort, without the provision of entertainment.

Of course, this technology also for the 2010 Jaguar XFR long as raw as the BMW M5. BeeEm requires your full attention all the time. Jaguar is not the case. The trip, which is much stronger than the XF, it is pleasantly flexible. Even with 20-inch wheels and tires, fast acting Relationship Management, E-type is more difficult compared with M-car. However, this should not be confused with a lack of talent and ambition. XFR sedan is mysterious, but still able and entertaining.

You try harder, the better the response. You brake hard and deep in the corner (the first step drives currently 14.9 inches) to compensate for the initial understeer and gas, and travel time. High-speed curves, XFR start to feel lighter and smaller than it really is, through the clarity, accuracy and well-weighted steering, which is much better than the opposition. ZF six-speed automatic gearbox is also an ideal place for the V8-aluminum wheels Swifty exchange transition paddles on the steering wheel switch, and in manual mode, no changes without human intervention.

System stability control also has two modes: standard and track. In theory, this allows a little bit now, but still quite early and vigorous action. Of course, you can also completely shut down, and then Jaguar easy temptation of power slides glamorous and heroic, warm clothes to develop Jaguar driver Mike Cruz in time to perfect. Jaguar XFR is much more sensitive to taxes than the M5 and RS6. It is not a standard configuration, Jaguar, but if you want a bully, is happy to provide.

The advent of speed
XF from the very beginning as a sports sedan, but the R-type has another dose of machismo. Chrome mesh front air wings, and the new R-type normal mesh grille are the most obvious visual changes that contribute to the aggressive appearance of a new car. It will also enhance the slats at the front of the bonnet, extended rocker threshold skirts, subtle spoiler on the top deck, four exhaust tips and, of course, the big 20-inch wheels with supercharging. "This is a complete package, which is located on the right side of tasteful.

These changes are modest in the interior. You will receive a discrete "R" badge on the steering wheel and trim, a new turn in the court of aluminum, as well as sports seats, which are located in different directions 14 The only other sign is a tool that is currently being "super" and the emblem of the red needle. Jaguar XFR fund remains a pleasant place to be, but there are not too many places on the back, as you will find on the Audi RS6.

The cost of Speed
2010 Jaguar XFR in price from $ 80000, which is far from $ 52,000 for entry-level sedan XF, but also a fair way below the $ 96,000 supercharged XKR coupe. Most importantly, XFR Limousine price is $ 5500 less than the BMW M5.

As in the case of the XF sedan, the new R-type, probably not in the powers of instant recognition cars AMG, Quattro GmbH division or M, but he deserves to be the new "Jaguar" with the best. Beautiful, very quickly and massively to this situation, this car is a potential XF.

Jaguar in the final round in the game.
