2014 Jaguar XFR-S Sportbrake : Current Models

The Jaguar XFR-S is already an impressive drive. However, take its 550-horsepower drivetrain and pack it into the svelte body of the XF Sportbrake and you’ve got a surefire hit on your hands.

That’s exactly what Jaguar has done with its latest XFR-S Sportbrake, which has previously been spotted testing in prototype form and has now leaked ahead of its official world debut at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show next week.

This single photo, posted online by Autocar, shows what the new 550-horsepower family hauler will look like when the covers finally come off, and confirms that Jaguar designers haven’t toned down the aggressive styling of the XFR-S sedan in its transformation into a wagon.

Key elements include the huge intakes in the front bumper, 20-inch staggered wheels, Pirelli tires and uprated suspension. Then there’s the brute of a powertrain, which in this case is a supercharged 5.0-liter delivering 550 horsepower and 502 pound-feet of torque.

Like in the XFR-S sedan, drive in the XFR-S Sportbrake should go to the rear wheels only, via an eight-speed automatic transmission. Look for 0-60 mph acceleration of about 4.4 seconds and a top speed governed to 186 mph.

Sadly, since the regular XF Sportbrake isn’t sold in the U.S., this one won’t be either.

Stay tuned for the full reveal at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, which gets underway on March 4. In the meantime, head to our dedicated hub to see what else the Swiss show has to offer.
