GOODWOOD, UNITED KINGDOM – Marc 21, 2013: The new Jaguar XFR-S made its global dynamic debut on the famous Goodwood Hill today. Finished in Italian Racing Red, the prototype version of Jaguar’s fastest ever sports saloon was driven in front of a media audience at Goodwood by 1988 Le Mans 24hr race winner Andy Wallace.

First shown at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November last year, the stunning XFR-S was joined at Goodwood Festival of Speed press day by heroes of Jaguar’s sporting past. A 1962 Jaguar Mk. II prepared by Jaguar Heritage Racing, and a 1954 ‘short nose’ Jaguar D-Type – chassis No.1 and itself a development prototype – were also on display by the Jaguar Heritage Trust in front of Goodwood House.

The new XFR-S is capable of sprinting from zero to 60mph in just 4.4 seconds (0-100km/h in 4.6 seconds), and up to the electronically limited top speed of 186mph (300km/h).
