Jaguar to produce special edition XKR

Looks like Jaguar will be producing a special edition XKR that could generate 523 hp and still look smooth just like you would expect from a Jaguar. No word yet on the official launch but when we see it you will too!

From Motocrave.com:

Jaguar is currently working on a new special edition XKR, which will be a production model of the XKR Goodwood Special it showed at the Goodwood Festival of Speed last year. The new car is in the prototype stage and recently raced around the ‘Ring in under eight minutes.

The XKR from Goodwood featured the XKR’s supercharged 5.0-liter V8 upgraded to output 523 hp and 516 lb-ft (up from 510 hp and 461 lb-ft). Other modifications included lowered suspension, 21-inch wheels and a four-pipe exhaust system. It’s capable of speeds up to 186 mph.
