2014 Jaguar XFR-S: The Big Cat that’s Quiet, Powerful & Loves to Drift! – Ignition Ep. 86

On this episode of Ignition, Carlos Lago gets behind the wheel of a Jaguar XFR-S, an even more powerful and limited production version of the already lively XFR. As competitor to the BMW M5, and also Jaguar’s fastest Sedan, the XFR-S is packed with a supercharged V-8 that produces 550-hp and 502 lb-ft of torque, and is also given an assortment of new exterior upgrades that truly separates this cat from the rest of the pack. Given these traits and its inherent tendency to drift, we wonder if Jaguar is on to something with its more youthful approach to its cars.

Ignition appears every Monday on the Motor Trend youtube channel. http://www.youtube.com/motortrend

    If he finds it too quiet, maybe he'd be more comfortable in a Mustang or something. He clearly doesn't know what to do with a luxury Jaguar.

    the guy says it's not loud enough, that's because it's a Jag, it's not supposed to be shouty, but refined and comfortable, which it is, I've driven this monster in German Autobahns, it was in fact, one of the most comfortable performance cars I've driven in years.

    oh, one more thing, it's not Jagwar, it's Jaguar [Jag-you-are]
