At the heart of the Jaguar is a 5.0-liter V8 engine that dishes out 550PS and 680Nm of torque. A six-speed automatic transmission transfers power and an active electronic differential keeps things tidy. The XK does a 0-100 in about 4 seconds while reaching an electronically limited top speed of 280kmph.
The car gets a dedicated aerodynamic package and suspension tweaks which increase downforce and optimise cornering. An elevated rear wing, rear diffuser, carbon-fiber front splitter, dive planes and extended wheel arch spats are some of the elements used to improve aerodynamics. A better suspension assembly is is present with a wider front track, new bushings, and a steering system with faster steering ratios.
