Jaguar XKR-S GT IS coming to the UK – just 10 available

The Jaguar XKR-S GT (pictured at Goodwood FoS) will be available in the UK

At the New York Auto Show in the spring, the Jaguar XKR-S GT was revealed as a track inspired, but road legal, version of the XKR-S to be sold in limited numbers and only for the US market. At first we thought the XKR-S GT was destined for both the US and UK, but it quickly became clear that Jaguar intended their XKR-S GT just for the US. Which seemed a shame.

But within a week of the GT being revealed it was also clear that Jaguar would build the XKR-S GT for the UK market if enough people stepped up and said they wanted one. And it seems they did.

So Jaguar has now announced that they are to build 10 cars for the UK too, with the same upgrades the US version gets.

That means power stays the same as the standard XKR-S – 542bhp – but with retuned dampers and spring rates, carbon ceramic brakes, active exhaust, faster steering rack, carbon fibre bits, new diffusers, aluminium undertray and a great big spoiler on the back.

It’s clear Jaguar already has some orders for the XKR-S GT in the UK, so if you do want one you’d better dig deep – ¬£135,000 deep – and get a call in to your local Jaguar dealer asap.
