Jaguar has set the 'cat among the pigeons'. And no, it's not the F-Type, if you thought so. It's the new XJR, a nameplate that's been revived after a hiatus of five years. Designed to take on the likes of the Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG, the XJR takes over from the XJ V8 Supercharged as the flagship.

Powering the XJR is a 5.0-litre Supercharged V8 that now produces 550 hp, instead of the 500-odd horsepower that the V8 Supercharged produces. This state of tune can also be found in the XFR-S and the XKR-S. Expect a 0-100 kph time well under 5 seconds and a de-restricted top speed in the region of 300 kph, give or take.
 
According to Adrian Hallmark, Global Brand Director, Jaguar: "The new XJR epitomises the three pillars of technology, performance and contemporary design which the Jaguar brand stands for in the twenty-first century, while delivering new levels of dynamic ability in a luxury saloon."

The XJR will go on sale by mid-2013 and will be sold along with a lineup that includes the new F-Type and the all-wheel drive versions of the XJ and XF.
