2010 Jaguar XKR ‘Goodwood Special’

“The XKR ‘Goodwood Special’ has been developed as a one-off to explore the harder side of the XKR’s character and allow our engineering team to explore some performance boundaries. The Festival of Speed gives us the opportunity to have fun in a high performance car without all the practical and legal requirements of driving on the road getting in the way!

As well as performance enhancements and a louder exhaust, this one-off XKR, based on a MY10 vehicle, features 21-inch wheels and a lowered ride-height. The exterior also stands out with a unique Lime Green paint scheme and XKR exterior graphic along with satin graphite detailing to the front grilles, headlights, door mirrors, side window surrounds, rear signature blade and bonnet louvres.

The standard XKR features a new 5.0-litre V8 supercharged engine which has significantly enhanced the sporting character of the car. This special Goodwood XKR’s engine torque was increased from 625Nm to 700Nm and with power up from 510PS to 530PS, it will accelerate from 0-60mph in around 4.2 seconds.

Jaguar’s NVH team also developed a great sounding exhaust which was louder and crisper, building on the already strong exhaust sound of the standard car. Fitted with 21-inch wheels and a lowered ride-height, the XKR had a one-off lime green paint scheme with satin graphite detailing to the front grilles, headlights, door mirrors, side window surrounds, rear signature blade and bonnet louvers. The car also featured a unique graphic on the side and bonnet of the car proudly stating that it is an XKR.
