A Jaguar XFR-S is likely to be on the way soon, spurred by competition from the BMW M5 and Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG which seriously outgun the British super-sedan.

The current XFR (pictured above) uses a 5.0-liter supercharged V8 to make 510 horsepower which falls about 40 ponies short of both sedans it directly competes with. While that’s a significant difference, it’s probably important to take a step back and realize that none of the numbers in this story are to be taken lightly.

Despite that, Jaguar will have to do something soon if they want to remain competitive. We don’t have concrete specifications on the XFR-S at the moment, but it was spotted running the Nürburgring last summer.

We expect it to pack at least 550 horsepower to stay on par, along with standard performance upgrades like a stiffer chassis and suspension. Of course, the price will increase as well, which we’ll report as soon as details break.

Jaguar’s new high performance XKR-S is the fastest car in its lineup since the XJ220 supercar built twenty years ago. Jaguar is now considering installing the same 542-hp 5.0-liter supercharged V8 in the XK convertible and XF sedan. The XKR-S convertible and coupe will have identical aerodynamic upgrades feauturing front and rear carbon-fiber spoilers as well as extra front air scoops and wider fender arches. This Jaguar is capable of reaching 186 mph and looks absolutely fantastic.

The XF will also receive an “S” model featuring improved power with a new 0-60 time of around 4 seconds and a top speed of 180 mph. The XFR-S will supposedly cost around $25,000 more than the regular XFR so it is fairly expensive. However this car is supposed to give the BMW M5 a run for its money and will also compete with the Mercedes-Benz E-Class AMG.

Both the XKR-S convertible and the XFR-S sedan will receive the active exhaust system that opens for more power and sound during performance driving, as well as the variable-rate dampers.
