The 2010 Jaguar XFR is simply the best sports car value on the market today. Don’t be fooled by the vehicle’s four door appearance because this factory tuned hot rod is anything but an ordinary sports sedan. The vehicle offers unmatched levels of performance, style and luxury. Staring off, the car’s 5.0 Liter supercharged V8 that pumps out 510 HP allowing the XFR to rocket to 60 MPH from a standstill in just 4.7 seconds. Next our XFR’s Aero Performance Design bodywork is covered in a very attractive Indigo Blue metallic paint and is made to look even better with the large 20 inch Nevis wheels. Finally the interior has been crafted with unique R soft grain leather and suede, materials you won’t even find in a Bentley, and it is all priced at only $80,000.

We thoroughly enjoyed our opportunity to get to know the XFR intimately, just being behind the wheel made our test editors giddy with excitement. Just knowing that there is so much power at your disposal is enough to put a grin on any gear head’s face. The XFR is an incredible performance machine that is capable of mind numbing speeds while still maintainging the elegance and presence that comes standard with any Jaguar. In our opinion the XFR is a steal, in order to find this level of performance, style and luxury prepare to spend a bit more than $100,000.

The host of the BBC’s best automotive journal, Jeremy Clarkson, recently got behind the wheel of the new 510 HP Jaguar XFR . So what does the most influential man on Top Gear think about the Indian automaker’s fastest four door feline?

Jay Leno isn’t the only one lucky enough to get behind the wheel of the 510 HP Jaguar XF-R , thanks to our local Jaguar fleet service Top Speed has just received a brand new Indigo Blue version of the now Indian automaker’s high performance four door. The crown jewel of the XF-R is the new 5.0 Liter supercharged V8 that makes over 500 ground pounding horses and takes the XF from 0 to 60 MPH in as little as 4.7 seconds and can complete the standing quarter mile in just over 13.0 seconds.

The XF-R sets itself apart from lesser XF models thanks to Jaguar’s aero performance design that includes a new lower hanging front bumper with a larger mesh grille and functional cutouts in the hood to allow a little hot air to vent. The sides of the car sit lower to the ground thanks to a set of restyled side skirts and out back the XF-R receives a subtle trunk mounted spoiler to go along with the distinctive R badge. One of the nicest touches included by the Jaguar design team are the 20 inch Nevis alloy wheels that clearly spell out that this XF is something special.

On the inside our XF-R is a step up from the standard model. There is the same familiar wood grain, but this time the seats are much more bolstered and are covered in a combination of London Tan and Charcoal leather that makes a set of seats that are as nice to look at as they are to sit in. Jaguar has kept the familiar dial style gear selector, but we have a hard time imagining it in any other setting aside from Sport. If you have ever been inside of an XF you know just how plush and luxurious the cabin can be, the XF-R takes it a step further and adds in a little taste of sport.

It is no secret that Jay Leno rides amongst a distinct group of automotive enthusiasts who is privileged enough to experience some of the best vehicles in the world. It appears that when the late night television comedian stopped by to unveil the latest generation Jaguar XJ luxury limousine that the self proclaimed president of the more money than brains club decided that he wanted to try out the company’s latest high performance sedan, the Jaguar XF-R .

It is only fitting that Jay, being such a gear head, persuaded the Jaguar PR folks to let him get behind the wheel of a 2010 XF-R powered by a supercharged 5.0 Liter V8 making an astonishing 510 HP. Now Mr. Leno is no stranger to big horsepower numbers, his turbocharged tank car is evidence enough of that, but it could be the added luxury and comfort that come along with high performance machine that the late night host was really eager to experience. That is one of the benefits of being a world renowned celebrity, all Jay had to do was spend a little time entertaining the XJ crowd and then he got to enjoy the XF-R all he wanted, and we thought our jobs were good.

When Jaguar introduced their replacement for the now defunct S type with the new XF the only thing they were missing was the blower, well the now Indian automaker has solved that problem with the Jaguar XF Supercharged. From our test car’s Radiance Metallic red paint, to the stylish 20 inch rims, the exterior of our XF Supercharged is an eye catcher. The interior features a few new tricks that are promised never get old. Te seats are comfortable and the ride is smooth, but what sets this 420 HP Jaguar apart from the rest is its supercharged 4.2 Liter V8 engine that when combined with the six speed automatic transmission, allows our XF to go from 0 to 60 MPH in just 5.1 seconds. Can Jaguar sell enough of these high performance sports sedans to up and coming car shoppers starting at around $63,000 in order to keep a good thing going, we can only wait and see.

Watch out British bad guys, because the fuzz is after you, in style. Jaguar has just released their first ever, police spec XF . With an average fuel economy of 42 MPG, this diesel powered Jaguar XF is the perfect vehicle for outlasting criminals in a high speed pursuit. The 3.0 Liter turbo diesel V6 makes around 270 HP and is enough to launch the police cruiser from 0 to 60 MPH in just 5.9 seconds. The police spec XF was chosen due to the vehicle’s very high level of performance and handling, as well as safety and comfort. Geoff Cousins, UK Managing Director for Jaguar Cars, said that “Police forces are looking for vehicles that represent value for money, have good environmental credentials and deliver the power and performance required of a pursuit vehicle.”

Although it’s not quite a pursuit Lamborghini Gallardo , this Jaguar XF is enough to make me think twice about speeding through the U.K.

When Jaguar first started showing off its 2010 XKR and XFR earlier this year, we were pretty excited. After all, both cars would now get 90 extra horsepower stuffed into bodies we already liked for their the handsome British looks.

First Drive: 2010 Jaguar XKR and XFR

We weren’t the only ones. Most of the press seemed to latch on to the new 5.0-liter V8 engine and didn’t pick up on the other improvements that make these two R-cars all-around performers. Jaguar has picked up on this and is going across the country to give the XKR and XFR a proper introduction.

It’s a seven-city journey called the Jaguar Legendary Performance Tour. This invite-only occasion allows Jag owners as well as owners of competitor cars to come out to local raceways across the country and put the R-cars through the ringer. Didn’t get your invite in the mail? Don’t worry Jaguar let us smoke the tires on the 510 hp XKR and XFR at Palm Beach International Raceway before the guests had a chance to flog them.
