Jaguar XKR-S GT Gallery
On the road the Jaguar XKR-S GT feels stiffer and more controlled than the regular RS. But despite the extra control and the new-found absence of roll or lurch when changing direction quickly, it doesn’t feel compromised in terms of its ride quality. It’s firmer than normal but it still feels like a regular Jaguar on the move.
Other things to note; it really does steer beautifully. The gearbox can never quite make its mind up which ratio it wants to be in, even if you select “sport” mode. The noise that erupts out of the four tailpipes if you give it full throttle is awesome.
Despite appearances, this is really a great car to drive. Not a Porsche 911 GT3 rival but, instead, something almost as quick and a fair bit more usable into the bargain.
