Ahead of this week’s New York International Auto Show comes a look at the 2014 Jaguar XKR-S GT. It’s the ultimate street-legal and track-ready version of the XK coupe and is powered by the British automaker’s proven supercharged 5.0 liter V8 which delivers 550 hp and 502 lb-ft of torque when mated with a six-speed automatic transmission. Jaguar fitted the XKR-S GT with a new hood as well as carbon fiber on the redesigned front air splitter, dive planes, extended wheel arch spats, as well as a new rear diffuser, an aluminum front under tray and a back wing to control downforce.
Only 30 will be offered in North America, with 25 slated for the United States and the remaining five going to Canada. Price is set at $174,000 with this monstrous beauty going on sale in August. We’ve got a video below with the 2014 Jaguar XKR-S GT in motion so be sure to check it out.
