Jaguar to deliver quality showcase at Goodwood Festival of Speed
Jaguar will be showcasing some of its past, present and near-future models at this year's Goodwood Festival of Speed, which echoes the theme of the event – addicted to winning.
Visitors will get to see up close the carmaker's TYPE R Coup� and XFR-S Sportbrake, to exquisite models that are set to usher in a new era of excellence in motoring.
The XFR-S Sportbrake sees Jaguar venture into new territory, as it is the first time it has produced a high-performance R-S branded estate car.
It comes with a 5.0-litre supercharged V8 engine, which produces 550PS and 680Nm of torque.
As for styling, it takes a lot from the saloon's punchy aesthetic. It is a lot less aggressive, as is exemplified by a smaller roof spoiler and deep front bumper.
The sporty sensibility continues with the interior, with sports seats covered in carbon stitched leather and all the latest technology required by today's drivers.
One of the highlights is set to be seeing various D-Types in action, which includes the 1954 prototype and the 1956 Long Nose model.
