So we got a 2014 Jaguar XFR-S

2014 Jaguar XFR-S in the UAE
Truth be told, we’ve become a bit bored with super-sedans nowadays. They look like their cheaper brethren, with a few subtle styling tweaks that only nerds notice, while packing a big motor whose power you cannot use anywhere legally. Big deal. We like the way Jaguar did it though — the XFR-S styling tweaks are a little more aggressive than the norm, while the motor makes all sorts of real supercar noises, even when parked. Eat your heart out, BMW.

It helped that the XF-RS had the attractive swoopy XF to build off of, rather than a stodgy featureless 5-Series. The “R-S” adds things like that front bumper with gaping intakes, several vents, side skirts, rear diffuser bumper and more. Our tester had a rear lip spoiler though, rather than the big spoiler we’ve seen in press photos.

Inside, there’s acres of leather, as is customary with most high-end Jaguars. The design’s fine, but its age is starting to show thanks to that small touchscreen. Still, there’s no real limitation on functionality.

The XFR-S is the answer to the question of what you’ll get when you cross an XF with an F-Type R. It drives and sounds a lot like its sports-car sibling. No hundred “drive modes” and no idiotic sound generators. More on that in the full review.

What do you think?



  1. the desginer stole some of holden’s design

  2. Would love to own one in French racing blue. One day, hopefully 🙂

  3. if you squint your eyes and look at it…..looks like a Lancer 😛

  4. Side pose looks like the Chevrolet Lumina SS models. Love the centre console, so wide and spacey.

  5. looks like American car now, like Dodge or Mustang stile
