Cars.com reviewer Joe Wiesenfelder says the 2014 Jaguar XFR-S aims for maximum road performance yet achieves track readiness. With exterior styling already beefed-up from the XF to XFR models, the XFR-S further gooses aggression to great effect — but skip that garish optional spoiler. Power also increases on the sedan's 5.0-liter V-8, good for 550 horsepower, 502 pounds-feet of torque and a 4.4-second zero-to-60 time. The controlled, tasteful ride is undermined by an exhaust noise guaranteed to annoy anyone outside, but, hey, it's nice and quiet in the cabin, where you'll be.
