Jaguar says may build more XKR-S GTs

Jaguar XKR-S GT

Jaguar has acknowledged that it would be prepared to increase the strictly limited production run of its recently launched XKR-S GT if there is sufficient demand. The purely racing-focused Jaguar XKR-S GT might not be so rare after all. The strictly limited edition street-legal track car was officially launched at the New York Motor show earlier this month with a US$174,895 price tag and an accompanying announcement that only 30 would ever be built. However, according to Autocar, Jaguar would consider building a further 20 if there is sufficient demand.

“It is possible the production run will reach 50,” Jaguar boss Adrian Hallmark told the publication. “The initial cap was set to define the business case but, thankfully, there is room for more.”

The car, based on the subtle and graceful XKR coupe, sports a huge carbon fibre chin spoiler and air splitter and equally large rear tail. The model is a showcase of the company’s ETO division and its capabilities in terms of suspension, engine tuning, aerodynamics and chassis technology. The car is capable of going from 0-100kph in 3.9 seconds and on to an electronically-limited top speed of 300kph. Keeping that performance under control are huge carbon ceramic brakes and Pirelli Corsa tires. (Source)
