Sometimes you wonder when enough’s enough, and when you consider the thinking behind the outrageous Jaguar XKR-S you’ll realise that those who gave this thing the go-ahead simply had their hands over their ears when caution was being urged. The thing is, the brutish Jaguar XKR that preceded the ‘S’ was more than enough to please the performance junkies but Jag felt it still wasn’t done and got going with the Porsche GT3-rivalling XKR-S Coupe.

Running costs

Jaguar XKR-S running costs aren’t cheap, and if you are lucky or show unbelievable restraint you will return the official average fuel consumption of 23mpg. That’s unlikely such is the addictive nature of the sonorous 5-litre V8 that if you manage to get over 20mpg you’ll be doing well. It is expensive to buy, and with group 50 insurance, it’ll be expensive to run.

You can expect decent, yet pricey service at Jaguar dealerships too.
