The supercharged XKR might have only recently pounced from the starting blocks, but Jaguar has already announced a special edition at Geneva - the XKR Portfolio. While mechanical specifications are almost entirely as per the original model, the Portfolio boasts unique Celestial Black paint, upgraded interior trim and a Bowers and Wilkins stereo system. Power remains unchanged at 420bhp. However, the Portfolio benefits from larger brakes, Jaguar fitting 400mm discs up front with 350mm at the rear. Meanwhile, Ian Callum's vaguely aggressive update of the XJ saloon was also displayed at Geneva. The car features doorstop front and rear bumpers together with XK-style wing vents. Callum admitted to CAR Online that while the Jaguar old guard aren't fans of the facelift, younger buyers are - the brand being keen to attract a younger demographic.
