2009 Jaguar XF-R Spied!

May 21, 2008
TheCarConnection.com's spy photographers caught the best shots yet of the 2009 Jaguar XF-R as it rolled through the city streets in the U.K.

Hood vents, a deeper, more aggressive front air dam, and a new mesh treatment to the grille coverings signify the hottest version of the Jaguar XF, the new sedan that TheCarConnection.com's editors called "a modern icon." The XF's side vents are also blacked out for a more sinister look. Large turbine-style wheels (likely to be 20-inchers) are taped up a bit, but their aggressive design is clearly visible. Quad exhaust tips round out the visual changes. The XF-R's body mods are subtle, yet very pursposeful to set it apart from lesser XF models.

Sources report that the 2009 Jaguar XF-R will get a new supercharged 5.0-liter V-8 making a minimum of 500 horsepower, so Jaguar clearly appears to have the likes of the BMW M5 in its sights.
