It may be snowing in other parts of the country, but here in Miami FL, we get to enjoy warm weather all year long.

Specs & Features
As per usual, we’ll dive into some of this GT sedan’s specs & features to give you a better idea of what it’s capable, starting of course with performance. The 2012 XKR-S is powered by a supercharged 5.0L V8 engine that’s capable of doling out 542 horsepower alongside 502 pound-feet of torque. But the engine is supplemented by a host of other performance-enhancing features, like Z-speed tires, an active exhaust system, a continuously variable damper suspension system, an active differential control, a 6-speed automatic transmission with sequential shift, ventilated disc brakes, and a Bosch Servotronic speed-sensitive steering system.
All of these specs & features add to the sportiness and high-performance designation of the grand tourer, but what about the luxury portion of the vehicle? While the exterior design certainly gives off a high-class, sophisticated aura, what truly makes the XKR-S a luxury vehicle? It is packed with tons of great features and premium content, from the DVD-navigation system to the 7” display audio system, Bi-xenon headlights, Jaguar Smart Key System, and much, much more.
