If you needed any more proof that Jaguar is serious about performance driving, the newly unveiled 2014 Jaguar XFR-S ($99,000) should wake you up. Yes, it’s as serious as it looks.
With a 5.5-liter supercharged V8 that provides 550 horsepower to the rear wheels, this top-of-the-line XF cat gets 0-60 in 4.4 seconds and tops out at 186 mph. Provided your passengers aren’t all corpulently configured, this means you can frighten five people (including yourself) at near supercar speeds. And yes, it comes with all the doo-dads, like adaptive headlights, LED taillights, rip-roaring quad exhausts, an 825W sound system, navigation, a 7-inch touchscreen and fully ventilated and heated front seats, just to name a few. All you have to figure out is whether or not to go with classic British Racing Green paint or eye-searing electric blue.
