The new Jaguar XKR-S

The Jaguar XKR-S embodies all the characteristics that have always defined the legendary brand – explosive performance, precise handling, relaxed comfort and discreet luxury – while taking Jaguar into a new performance level. After testing hundreds of 2012 vehicles, Playboy editors agreed, naming the Jaguar XKR-S 2012’s “Car of the Year.”

“Just a roll bar short of serious racing trim, the supercharged XKR-S is Jaguar’s fastest-ever and most powerful production sports car. It’ll top 186-mph (300 KPH), and leaps from 0-to-60 in just 4.2-seconds. Tearing over our favorite twisty roads, with its 550-hp V-8 singing, taut suspension holding perfectly, tires gripping like the claws of a demented cat, this mean-looking coupe is best driven on a racetrack, but it’s tame enough to drive every day. That’s why we want one, and that’s why the striking new XKR-S is Playboy’s 2012 Car of the Year,” said Ken Gross, contributing editor of Playboy.
