Jaguar's XFR-S Sportbrake

THIS is the first high-performance estate from Jaguar.

The new rear-wheel-drive XFR-S Sportbrake will go on sale in July. It's all about power – there is a 5-litre V8 (542bhp) that shoots it from a standing start to 100kph in a mere 4.8 seconds.

There is already an XFR-S saloon but this adds a lot of rear load space (1,675 litres when the rear seats are folded). Nothing like practicality in a 5-litre estate is there?

As we've come to expect, there is an 8spd automatic gearbox and the suspension has been tweaked to take the additional weight at the back into account.

Standard are 20ins forged alloys, roof-mounted rear spoiler and carbonfibre trim on the front and rear bumpers.

Inside there is carbon leather and contrasting highlight micro-piping and stitching.
